G is for Giraffe

Hello.  Welcome.  So where did that two weeks go???   Jane has put up the new dictionary challenge at the Craft Barn and I suddenly realised my G altered playing card was no where to be seen.  So I looked through my box of scraps and found a partly coloured giraffe.  Since I had started to colour it pink I decided to go with that......

I didn't intend to use Giraffe but this little cutie from Flonzcraft was just too endearing

I was playing with the idea of a vellum layer when I came across this Buddha paper from Craft Creations.  It's made up of these beautiful leaf skeletons and allows the playing card back to still be seen.   I quite like this look

Ah yes, well......  I got this feather die out last week to join a challenge with the theme of feathers and it never got used.  So for some reason, and I'm blaming it on the girl next door, I had a vision that a load of pink feathers would look like a pink banana tree.  No comments about continental incompatibilities please

I added the definition from the OED and G is for Giraffe

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
