Hang in There!

Hi there peeps! I have a brand new creation to share with you this morning - seriously, the ink is barely dry! I've been up and stamping since 6:30am - I'm SO not a morning person so stamping is about all I can get my head around at that hour. Someoneeeeee might have set off the smoke alarm while toasting his crumpets this morning so it was a rude awakening to say the least - but out of my tired brain comes stamped cuteness, so that's ok!
I combined three of my fav challenges for this one. The cool sketch is from CPS. The colours, Ruby Red, Kiwi Kiss, Baja Breeze & Pumpkin Pie are this weeks Color Dare and the AllSorts challenge this week was to use animals!

I've had this Hero Arts set since, oh goodness, 2008 so it was well past time to get it inky! All my colouring was done with inkpads on watercolour paper. I finally used that leafy cuttlebug embossing folder too - it added something subtle and fun to my background.

Doesn't this wee giraffe look rather somber? I think this would make a good "get well soon" card.

I hope the sun is shining bright where you are today! Happy stamping :-)
