My favorite

This weekend is a blog hop on TAC's Savory Projects Blog with your favorites .... so I put three of my favorites together.  Those of you who know me well know that I LOVE these giraffes from the set 'Treasure Found'.  I have used them so much in my cards (you can check the side bar under Treasure Found to see them all).  This one is for a graduation card ... I have used them for birthday, wedding, anniversaries, get well, thanks and 'Make it your own' cards. They are very versatile and can be both masculine and feminine.  Here is a little trivia for you ... did you know that the giraffe have the largest heart of all mammals ... yes it it true.  Think about how hard it would be to pump blood from their heart to their brain and that will make sense to you.  It is used by a group called 'Non-violent Communications', which I worked with years ago, for their mascot to remind people to speak from their hearts instead of their minds.  I have always had a giraffe statue on my desk to remind me of that.

Well back to my favorites ... this card also uses my favorite backgrounds which are of course made with my Scor-pal and it is colored with my favorite method of coloring .... Copics.

Now it is your turn to add your favorite card to the hop .... and be sure to check out all of the great work others have done too! Mischelle's favorite is with one of the new sets that I LOVE .... so be sure to check it out!

Rita, that is not my favorite stamp set, but you have made me see it in a different light. Lovely card. I like how the short front reveals the sentiment inside. Your coloring is beautiful. I have seen you hone your skills on those giraffes through the posts on your blog. I am so glad I stopped by your blog today.

That is one of my favorites, Rita. I love all the realistic animal stamps! You did a pretty card with it.

This is beautiful! The scoring elongates the giraffes and adds a lot of dimension!
