SORRY for being MIA/ I like my giraffe

Hello and thank you for stopping by!!!! Happy new Year everyone and I am so sorry that I have been MIA for the last couple of months....I´m a really bad blogger, huh? Maybe I should stop blogging??? What do you think?
Well its a new year and so here is a new Blog-post. Before I start with the new project I want to share with you today I want to tell all the new Followers a warm Welcome and also want to thank them to follow my Blog. I´m only 2 follower away from 25...wooohoooooo LOL I know not the biggest milestone ;) I´m thankful for every follower and I appreciate that you take the time out of your day to read my blogposts.
Ok enough of that, now back to the creative things :)
A few days after christmas I created this card.

I made this giraffe out of yellow cardstock and punched out the head, horns,eyes and nostrils, body, feet and tail with my Owl-punch.

The legs were long strips of yellow cardstock and all body parts have been colored with the giraffe pattern by using my spongedauber, brown ink and a little piece my sewing thread was on.
The wholes on it were perfect to shape-ink all the dots on the giraffe. All parts were also distressed on their edges with brown ink and my dauber.
The little hat was a cut-piece from a stash of christmaspaper I bought at the craftfair last year.
As final part the giraffe got a scarf out of blue fluffy ribbon my friend Christi sent me.
To keep the wintertheme of the card I punched a few snowflakes out of embossed vellumpaper and put a selfadhesive pearl in the middle of each. The sentiment I used is from Lili of the Valley and it just fit the card.
Tell me what you think about this card. I would love to read your comments. I made a few other new animals with my owl-punch and will try to share them with you during the next weeks and months, but can´t promise to post as regular as I wish I could.
I hope everyone is having a great week and a greater weekend.See you all soon :)
Maria :)
