One of foxes friends

Hi guys,

Told you I'd be back. So excited that I have had the chance to blog again. I've been feeling a little lost without it actually. I have the other baby shower card to share with you today. This card needed to feature a giraffe and needed to be non gender specific. So what was better than the cute little giraffe from fox and friends? I actually drew some of my inspiration for this card from the catalogue. Best place to get some mojo from when it's lacking

Stamp Set: Fox and Friends, Baby Bundle
Ink: Baja Breeze, So Saffron
Cardstock: Whisper White, So Saffron, Baja Breeze prints DSP from Subtles DSP paper stack
Accessories: Whisper White taffeta, Whsiper White Button, Linen Thread, 1 3/4" circle punch, Dimensionals

I'm not if you can tell but the middle section is adhered to the base with dimensionals. Give the card some more dimension. Now I was a little unsure if this was "gender nuetral" enough or does the baja make it more "boyish". Please let me know your thoughts.

Also I thought I'd share a photo of my gorgeous daughter Riley just because I can. I can't believe how quickly she is growing up. Here she is running around blowing kisses to however will catch them. Do you love her skirt?? I got it specially made as a one off for her by Ilja at Em&Femme Designs for Christmas. I also got the cutest shirt to match with fairy wings on it but she got it all dirty by the time I took this haha.

Have a great one,
