Wishes Come True!

My Gina K ordered arrived yesterday morning, how cool that these arrived the same day that Gina announced her new design team for the coming 3 months ..... you can see her post here. I couldn't believe it when I first opened up the email from Gina to inform me I was on her team this round ..... I am so looking forward to it!

I had a busy day yesterday as I had a friend over and we went shopping for square envelopes which we found but I also managed to find some new DP during my travels too ... this one used here is one of them. Of course I had to make a card last night using one of my new stamps and some of my new DP ;)

Yeah I know it is bright .... you might need sunnies (hehehehe!), but I just had to use that DP with the giraffe .... I think it would make a great kids birthday card!

I stamped the giraffe onto my white card using black ink, and colored ... I just love those hearts instead of spots on the giraffe's back ...... I was tempted to turn this into a valentines card but I figured I had enough of those here for now esp considering my DH doesn't do valentines hehe! I masked the giraffe so that I could add the grass and clouds around her.

For the pink panel I used my heart cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss just the top section of the card, this was a little tricky when I came to the other side of the card ... but as the band was going across the card anyway ... I just folded the card there so I could get it in my machine! Shhhhh don't tell! I added the DP across the card and added my ribbon. Stamped my verse below on the portion of the pink card that I hadn't embossed and then mounted this all to my folded white card.

Stamps: Just so Hippy & Rectangle Greetings - Gina K Designs, Clouds - Art Impressions; Grass - Stamp It
Paper: White; Pink Passion & Green Galore - Stampin' Up; Playtime DP - Kaiser
Other: Black Ink; Green Galore SU Ink; Celeste Blue Impress Ink; Ticket Corner Punch; Heart Cuttlebug Embossing Folder; Pink Grosgrain Ribbon
