Carolling giraffes, Christmas 43

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world...hugs

Judging by the puddles outside it must have been raining all night, but it has stopped now. It has been unseasonably warm though!
My week off work is nearly over, and I have had no chance to go out with my cameras cuz it has been so dark, wet and dreary :o( I had hoped for at least one sunny day so I could go out and get some Autumn scenes! The good news is that I have made lots of cards instead :o)

It's my turn for our Friday workshop tomorrow so I still have to make two sample cards and then make the kits up! So I plan on making them today and the kits tomorrow morning.

On to my card for today. I'm sure that most of you will remember my singing giraffes from last year. I loved them so much I have brought them out again for this year :o)

Very simple card to make.
My usual white linencard folded and cut to 7x5.
I merged my Elvaston Castle photograph with Karen's Doodles image and printed onto the same linencard, then layered it onto pewter textured card from PDA.
Image coloured with Copics.
Raised it on sticky foam pads for  a bit of dimension.
Ooooooooooooops! Nearly forgot to mention the Glamour Dust on the fluffy bits, but you can't really see it here!
Not sure of stamped greeting, it might be Papermania :o)

Ha! They are so funny Jackie... and I do love how you've merged them with one of your wonderful photos! That sentiment goes perfectly with them too..

Hope the sun shines at least one day before you go back to work... though looking at the forecast, it's doubtful...

Big hugs
