Die Cuttin' Divas Sketch Challenge

Hello and welcome to our July sketch challenge!  I still cannot believe it is July already.  I am looking forward to a long weekend off from work and seeing fireworks on July 4th! That is one of my favorite things and I look forward to seeing them every year. There is a small park right down the street from us and we can see our town's fireworks display from there so it's very convenient.

Since it's a new month, we are starting off with our sketch challenge based on this sketch:
One of my good friends is celebrating her wedding anniversary.  Her and her husband have been married for a long time and I wanted to make them an anniversary card to help them celebrate.

Die Cuttin' Divas Giraffe Challenge

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I hope you all had a good weekend and got to celebrate Father's Day with your families. We lost my dad 10 years ago and he  passed away the day before Father's Day so it's always a bittersweet day for me.  I try to remember all the good memories I have of my dad (and there are a lot of them!).  
 
This week our Die Cuttin' Divas challenge is to make a project using a Giraffe (World Giraffe Day is June 21st).  I have always had a soft spot for giraffes because years ago I worked in the offices of Toys "R" Us and their mascot was Geoffrey Giraffe!  Geoffrey always showed up at our company picnics and the kids just loved him!

Here is the card I made:
Giraffe: Close to my Heart Artbooking Cricut Cartridge
Oval: Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartridge
Paper: Stampin' Up
Star Sequins: Michaels
Sentiment: My Pink Stamper

Hello and welcome to my blog.  I hope you had a good weekend.  It was pretty nice here in San Diego this weekend.  My husband planted some tomato plants so we will be looking forward to having home grown tomatoes in a few months.  We also bought a new grill.
