Love Those Giraffes

Hello! Sorry about my recent little absence. I know a few of you were worried that I'd gone AWOL again. No such luck, I'm afraid - just mega busy! I'm pleased to say that I have been a little creative though - I'm teaching myself to knit! Ali keeps asking when my bus pass is going to come through but I have to say, I'm really enjoying it! It doesn't feel as anti-social as card making either as I can sit in front of the TV and knit away. I'm still on seriously basic stuff at the mo but, fingers crossed, I can progress on to some more exciting bits soon :o)

Anyway, I have also been getting inky recently and have spent some time picking out papers and colouring up a whole batch of images. I'm now spending the weekend making cards out of them. Think I might use this method a bit more in the future actually as it seems to get my creative juices flowing more!

I made this card a couple of weeks ago for Ali's birthday. It just so happens to fit the challenges over at DU2DS where the team have ask for shaped cards, and also over at Cupcake Craft Challenges where the call is to use digi images.
