Giraffe Baby

What an exciting day.
I have spent 4 hours at hospital being x-rayed, examined, poked and prodded, to be told that they are still not sure what is wrong or why my legs are so swollen, so they are just going to keep watching it for the next 6 weeks to see what happens next. Not quite the result I was hoping for :o(
Anyhow, enough grumping, at least the sun has come out to play again today, which always cheers the world up.
I made this card last night. I have embossed the stencil using my cuttlebug, then pricked and stitched the outline. His spots have been coloured using Sakura stardust pens. I have tried to keep the card simple and unfussy as it is for a little boy.
I am entering it in;
Charisma Cards - going round in circles
Polka Doodles - sew and sew
Totally Paper Crafts - monochromatic
Incy Wincy Designs - for the little ones


  1. The card is great Sharon! As always uncluttered and stylish! Sorry to hear about the lack of results from the hospital. Do you have to keep taking the tablets? xxxx
