A Morning without Coffee . . .

Happy July 1st Everyone!

A new month means new monthly challenges out in blogland and one of my favorites these days is the challenge offered at Imagine That! Creative Playground.  If you've not checked out this challenge blog before now, you owe it to yourself to click on the link now and see what they are offering!

How cute is this guy!!  
By playing along last month using any Imagine That Digistamps, they sent me this FUN set!  How COOL is that!!

 I was short on time so I went with the PRECOLORED image
and added the sentiment (via Word10) before printing,
and creating my fun card!

I have a friend who LOVES giraffes so guess who this card is being mailed to!  LOL
She's going to be so surprised as we haven't seen each other in a couple of years.

A Tutti Designs Nesting Stitched Rectangle was used to showcase my image and FAUX stitching was done around that background matting.  A little double loop bow of black organza and my card is ready to send!

Challenges to share in:
Crafting with Dragonflies Challenge - Punches & Dies
Brown Sugar Challenge #257 - ATG
4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #357 - ATG
 The Cutie Pie Challenge #112 - All Creature Great & Small

Hope you (and she) like it!

Thanks for stopping by and as always . . .
