Good morning, hope your week is going well so far! Halloween's over, bonfire night's almost here and it'll be Christmas before we know it...this year has just flown by! Once again it's time for a new challenge at Fab N Funky, this week we're sponsored by A Day for Daisies and it's Ginny's turn to host, she's picked the lovely theme of 'animals'.
The DT were allowed to pick an image each, very generous!, it took me ages (there are loads!) but eventually I decided on this adorable little chap, he's called Little man giraffe and he's available here.
I coloured him with copics, fussy cut him and added a ribbon bow over his own. A simple L/O with some added faux stitching. I bought a spiky wheel thingy to make the holes for the 'stitching' but had a spot of trouble controlling it, so it looks a bit wobbly...but my real stitching is like that the card a more authentic look :))
Thanks for visiting, just click here to see what my lovely teamies have made this week...and to add your own lovely creation of course.
Have a lovely day
