Giraffe Block - {Pin}spirational #44

Hi friends.  So nice to see you back here again. Today with a little more cheerful card and since it's Tuesday, it's got to be time for another {Pin}spirational Challenge.  Valentine's Day is coming rather quickly now and sometimes it's hard to create something for the man in your life, but I really think this one would be good.  It's not all the frilly lacy ones that you would buy for a woman.
Materials Used:
  • Image - Bugaboo - Giraffe Block - Two Left
  • Sentiment - Stampin Up - One of a Kind
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up - Kraft and Soft Suede; Xpress It Blending Card
  • Designer Paper - Basic Gray - Archaic
  • Accessories - Buttons, Twine, and Lace from my stash
  • Copic markers - B0000; E30, E31, E35, E18; G20, G21, G46; Y000, Y04, Y15; YG21, YG03, YR10, YR23, YR30, and YR31
Pretty easy this one - give it a try.  For more inspiration, pop on over to the {Pin}spirational Challenge blog and check out the rest of the creations by the awesome Design Teams.  You know we have two and each team has a different sponsor.

This week our sponsors are Bugaboo -
who will award a lucky winner 7 free digital images for their store and
our second sponsor is Floppy Latte -
who is awarded a $10 gift certificate to their store for one lucky winner.

Hope you'll join in the fun, that lucky winner (or 2) could be you!  Thanks so much for stopping by. Next time bring a friend along.  ;)
