Hello Sunshine

Every now and then I have to do something unconventional. 

A friend of Mum's celebrates her Birthday this week and I believe she is 92.  She lives in Cornwall in a very nice residential home and is quite a character, or certainly was when I last saw her. 
I am sure she will get lots of Birthday cards with flowers so I decided she had to have something different.  The OCC challenge is for a Window, the Speedy the cat challenge is to use a punch and the Woodware challenge is a sketch.  Having recently visited Marwell Zoo the giraffe stamp was the one that shone out.  As you can see from the photo above, that Dave took,, their heads were the bit on display and there was a lot of tongue poking out going on!

The paper is from K&Company, the punches used are Martha Stewart and Woodware and the image is from MFP.  The sentiment inside says Hello Sunshine, Happy Birthday.


  1. Love your take on the Woodware sketch Janine !! Just a fab idea !!

    hugs Diane xx

  2. Janine--this is wonderful! I love the way you cut out the center oval and stamped the giraffe inside. The flowers are beautiful! Thanks for playing along with us this week at Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge.

  3. Wow Janine this is amazing. You have capture the essence of the pictured giraffe in your fabulous card. Love the window and your punched decorations. Thank you so much for playing along with Speedy the Cat's Challenge this week. It is a joy to visit and see what you made for us. Good luck in the stamp drawing.
