Double D - It's A Jungle Out There!

Hello Dear Friends!

It's time once again for a new challenge over on the Double D Challenge Blog!
Diane is hosting today and as you can see by my blog title ... the theme is
  Here is the fabulous mood board she has created to help inspire you . . .
 OMG!  I had so much fun with this one!  I could have gone in so many different directions but here's what I chose to create ... final answer!  LOL

 I must confess!
I believe this Pink Ink Designs stamp set called 'Giraffe' was a prize I won awhile back from Simon Says!  When I picked it out, I did not realize how BIG it was ... yikes!  So it's been sitting around for awhile now until I finally figured out how I could use it.  It was certainly toooooooooo cute to give away!  LOL

The background paper is from the 6x6 'At the Zoo' paper pack by Doodlebug Designs, Inc.
My sentiment comes from an old Gina K stamp set called 'Wild About You' and I've used a Tutti Designs Scalloped Stitched Square die to cut it.  The tropical leaves are also OLD ... Cheery Lynn Designs was the maker.

 The glasses are also a stamp in the 'Giraffe' set.  I stamped them then fussy cut them before adhering them to the bridge of her nose.  Of course, I'm not sure if this is a HE or a SHE because they both have these beautiful long eyelashes but I'm going with SHE for today!  LOL
 Check out this fabulous paper pad Diane has up for grabs to one lucky random draw winner. 
 (WOW I need this for myself!!  lol)

 So, come play along using our theme and YOU might be our random winner!!
