I'm longing for you


Happy Wednesday stampers, scrappers & crafters!
Are we having fun yet? Have you been bathing suit shopping lately? What an experience that is! LOL! I go for the takini type of suits, and it is so hard for me to find one that the top fits and the bottom fits too! You can of course buy them as separates for over $100.00, but I just can't seem to justify that! So today I shall search again and pick up the snorkel and fins set at Costco. I am a Pisces true to form, I am such a fish and love being in the water! I could snorkel all day! Kauai has some great reefs and places to see the sea turtles and many beautiful fish. Can you tell I am just a wee bit looking forward to this getaway to paradise?
Now my giraffe card for today! This is my first giraffe stamp and I must say it is so cute from Gina K. I partially embossed the Swiss Dots CB folder on either side of the card stock and stamped the giraffe in the middle. I got this partial use of the CB idea from Beate, thanks Beate!
Supplies: CS-Papertrey Inc. - Apricot Appeal-SU! -PP-Glitter Spring pack-JoAnn's-Stamps-Gina K- Ink-Chocolate Chip SU! Flower & brad-MM-ribbon-LSS. Dimensionals under giraffe image. Prismacolored pencils, Copic marker, blender pen.
I'm off to do some errands for my trip, so I can be finished with the running around ahead of time! LOL!
Have a wonderful day, I hope the sun is shining where you are! Thanks for stopping by, I'll be back soon! I will have to blurf about later! (wink) Deb
