You Make Smile!


Happy Tuesday! It is 30 degree's here today and gorgeous! Due to the snow storm yesterday, the trees are covered and look beautiful. It sure doesn't look like spring. Is is spring where you are?

Today's card is one I did for a mystery image swap for one of my Yahoo groups. As you can probably guess, it is completely not a "me" image, but that is why we call it a challenge. I don't love how it turned out, but I didn't know what else to do with it. I am leaving it as is and it is going postal!

I am off to catch up on school work while my kids are at school. I hope you all are having a TERRIFIC Tuesday.

You did a great job. It does look like a hard image to work with. I'm not sure what I would do either.

That is a riot! I love giraffes!! I'd have a tough time with that image too. Great job!

This image was tough to work with, hence the challenge, but I think you did a great job, I love the square card and the print background of it.

I wouldn't change a thing on it! It looks great! Anyone would be very happy to receive such a "smiling" card!

Kristen I really, really like your card! the giraffe is colored in beautifully and I love the background paper! It reminds me of aged leather! So cool! I think you did an excellent job with this image.

I just lost my comment (I think). Apologies in advance, if this is a duplicate.

Anyhoo, I said I love how you doodled around the image. I keep meaning to do that, and forgetting, on some of my cards. The layout is great and the sentiment is perfect! Very cute card. TFS!

Oh I do love your smiley giraffe! Great Card!
And yes spring has sprung here in NI - the daffodils and crocus are all up and I was out yesterday without my coat for the first time in months!

I love it! That grinning giraffe seduced a smile from me when I was tired! Nice job!
