Happy Day, Lucky U Giraffe

Coffee of the Day - Cinnamon Hazelnut

Periodically I send cards to a little boy who has cancer. I found out that he loves giraffes. Yesterday Just Some Lines was giving away a free giraffe digi image. (free offer expires today, Thurs.) perfect! time to make him a new card! :)


Papers are from the Basic Grey Shine On collection, tag & sentiment stamps are from My Favorite Things. little enamel dots are some of my homemade ones and button is from my stash. red twine is re-purposed from the dog food bag. ;)  faux stitching was added with my white gel pen.

I forgot to mention that the little tag was made with a manila envelope I had saved. yes, I really do re-purpose just about everything! :)
