Christmas Giraffe

Fred the Giraffe

Christmas Giraffe

Good morning everyone and welcome to my blog.  I apologise to everyone I had made my cards and forgot to post them for Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 
I really think it's either too much on my mind or dementia is setting in.
Congratulations to last fortnights winners and this month we've extended Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 for a month over the Northern Hemipare's summer holidays.  So we are giving you the opportunity to use two of our sketch which I've used one of each as above.

Here's another view of both my cards.

Here are the two sketches used
Sketch #142
Sketch #143 
I rotated this sketch to fit my image.

 Our sponsor is Cute As A Button by Francesca Lopez.

Francesca is offering our lucky winner 
2 images fro her shop
and you can find more information about the wonderful images that we've used this fortnight either on her shop site or on her Facebook page found here.  

Don't forget to check out what the rest of the design team have created this month over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2.
