Giraffe ...

Another wet and windy Saturday! More time for crafting ... I would like to get started on the garden but it is just too wet ... so indoor activities have been the order of the day. 

To start with I'd like to share a card ... one that might be considered cute ... not a style that is usually associated with me but made as a special request for my daughter to give to celebrate a young man's first birthday!!

I used:
Hot of the Press Small Stamps: Giraffe
UNIKO: Simply Said
Clearly Besotted: Make A Wish Dies
Distress Inks: Festive Berries, Rusty Hinge and Spiced Marmalade

I'm going to join in with the current challenge at AAA Birthday Card Challenge

The first project of the day was to complete refurbishing a footstool from this:

to this:

Up-cycling or revamping small pieces of furniture is my latest obsession!  I'm building up to reupholstering a chair of my mum's that needs some *tlc but I thought I'd better start small!


* tender loving care


  1. Sweet! Love those glossy balloons. Thanks for playing at AAA Birthday, hope to see you join in with future challenges too.

  2. Aww, such a cute card! Thanks for joining us at AAA Birthday, hope to see you again! Tina DT

  3. You should do cute more often, Elaine, you do it very well! Your daughter must have been delighted with this card for the youngster's special 1st birthday! And I, oh, wow, am I ever delighted with the way you recovered that footstool! It's bright and cheery and sensational!! Hugs, Darnell
