Animal Outing Birthday

welcome back to my corner of the world.

The Animal Outing Stamp Set has 3 of the cutest little characters, a giraffe, rhino and kangeroo ~ perfect for birthday cards for the ‘littlies’ in our lives.  I have chosen some lovely bright colors and the Giraffe for my card, which gave me a chance to pull out my Watercolor Pencils for a little coloring and blending.

Ink & Share Scrapbook Blog Hop ~ Children / Friendship

Welcome to the  Ink & Share Scrapbook blog hop,  we are  group of international Stampin UP! demonstrators sharing our ideas and creativity with you.
