Giraffe Longing Penny Black Handmade Card

Donating this Card to Make a Child Smile

I finished up my Christmas shopping today, and also visited our local Hobby Lobby store and bought for myself 4 copic markers. Oh WOW, how do I love them. Hope Santa comes my way this year!..... I used the copic markers on the above card and just fell in love with them. I can't wait to get more.

I wanted to make a card for a child tonight and was thinking about all the sick children around Christmas time. So I decided to make this card with the Penny Black giraffe stamp "Longing". The Giraffe put a smile on my face when I saw it and what a cute stamp. I thought the giraffe would brighten a child's day and put a smile on their face so I'm donating this card to Make a Child Smile at
www.makeachildsmile.org Please go visit their site, and donate a card for such a great cause. Please read the do's and don't of the wording on the cards.

I have used the copic markers, embossed and chalked on this card. I kinda got a little carried away with the chalk. ha ha. I chalked & embossed the word phrase "Hope you feel better today" then added some ribbon to the card.

Have a wonderful day tomorrow and thank you for viewing my cards.

Oh Allie what a lovely thing you have done !!! Your card is gorgeous and YES it will put a smile on a child's face, it put a smile on mine (I MUST BE YOUNGER THAN I THINK) !! Seriously well done. I bought some copics also, I found a shop where I can buy them in singles ... it is so hard to pick colours, Happy Sunday.
