Today’s card reminds me of my sweet friend Judy Rozema who loves giraffes… It is another card today for this week’s sketch challenge at From the Heart Stamps. It’s a fun little sketch – I obviously like it since I revisited it again two days in a row hmmm… 🙂


I was digging though my rubber stamps and I found an absolutely awesome sentiment called “If it makes you smile” and I remembered a precious digi at FTHS called Laughing Giraffes. These two were meant to be together; so I decided to use this week’s sketch challenge and make it happen!

FTHS laughing Giraffe

I love it! It makes me smile out loud, therefore, I propped it up by my computer so I could enjoy it for a while… that is until I find just the right occasion to give it to someone!
