Love My Baby
Sponsor:  A Day For Daisies
Sweet Sketch 138

I made two cards for you today using this precious image, "Love My Baby" from A Day for Dasisies! Can't you just feel the tenderness from Momma Giraffe to her new little one?  I was getting low on baby cards so I thought I would double up using this image! 

The little silver giraffe came in a package of three from my local Scrap That store.  Sad but the owner of this shop is moving out of state and trying to sell her store here in Fircrest, WA, for $40,000 or best offer.  I throw that out to those of you who have always dreamed of having your own scap store!  I do hope she can sell it as I will miss the fun extra papers that she sells.  The coordinating paper on this card came from her is Bo Bunny.  Who doesn't love Bo Bunny paper?  I loved accenting with the turquoise on this card.

Arlana, I loved working with this sketch too!

This is second card I made with "Love My Baby."  I found these papers at Michael's and knew it would go well with this card!  I love the softness of this card and how it came together.
Which is your favorite?

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Hi Judi, don't make me choose I love both of them and I also looked at this image as I had to make a Babies Card this week. I love the colours on both cards and both cards look so so different. I just adore that cute little Giraffe brad very cute. Take care and have a wonderful week and weekend.

  2. Oh no, we don't have to pick to comment do we???, lol. Both of these are beautiful. I love giraffes and anything Africa these speak to me on that score. With Rick's trips there, we have lots of things in his "man cave" with the theme and I love all of the animals and then that this is so sweet with mom and baby. Your silver giraffe is so wonderful, never seen anything like that, hope your store doesn't close. Maybe you should buy it. Have a great week.

  3. I don't know if I could pick a favorite, they are both stunning cards. I love the look of both the color is perfect with the first card and the print is perfect with the second card. Fantastic work!

  4. These are just adorable and make the perfect baby cards. I don't know if I could pick a favorite either. I love them both. I love the added little charm along with the teal accent. I know what you mean about the craft store. I hope she can sell it too. We have had two of our specialty paper craft stores go out of business this past year. It really made me sad to see that. I wish her luck.
    Have a good day Judi. It was great to talk to you last night.
    Hugs, Nancy

  5. Oh Judi, they are both stunning. The image is adorable, perfect papers & the wee charm is so very cute. Hope things are good with you :)


  6. Judi both of your Giraffe cards are adorable. I love the brown doted papers. But the green papers are sweet too. Couldn't be a better match on both cards. I love your added metal charm so fun. They will be such sweet baby cards. There all you that's for sure. Thanks for all you do to help me with the bog. We are blessed to have such a special sister relationship. Love ya Arlana

  7. Wow Judi, what magnificent cards you've created here! Beautiful papers and colors, love 'em both!


  8. These are both so sweet and would be perfect for mother's day too!

    Peace & Luv,
