Little Bundle of Joy

I have a friend that is wanting a baby shower card for next month. She bought gifts that are all matching in pink and brown. Well, I told her that she needed a pink and brown card to go along with the gifts. Where else but in crafting land can such a request be filled?

Ok, so don't look tooo closely at the storks on the front. I did not realize that they were in flight straight up til I was all done with the card. So I had them 'wake up and fly right' on the inside. 
The giraffe is from Daisys Digi Doodles. It's called Giraffe...duh!!!! I would've given him a name like Stretch or Long Neck, or Chooey with that mouthful of acacia leaves. Did you know that giraffes' tongues can be as long as 21 inches? A giraffe is pregnant for 15 months, maybe that's why the calves are 6 ft tall when born. A giraffe's front legs are strong enough to kill a lion.
Now that you know so much more about giraffes go get one and start creating.

There's the Summertime challenge happening right now at Daisy Doodles Creative Challenge blog!

Where else can you find a pink giraffe, not anywhere that I know of. Never noticed the storks until you mentioned them. Great info on giraffes too, it's something that I didn't know, so now I know! You have a great sense of humor, your writing on your post made me chuckle. I know I have a couple of giraffes in my arsenal of digis. My project today is a wedding card for a friend of ours, they're finally getting married after living together for umpteen years. He's in his early 70's, and my friend Loretta is almost 60. I decided to go with a cutesy vibrant colored card, heck they don't need white, ivory, or lacey doo-dads. I'll post it when it's completed. :) Sandi
