Dies R Us #174 ~ Giraffe

   Hello everyone, and welcome to our latest challenge at Dies R Us.

Challenge #174 ~ Anything Goes! 
(As long as you use a die sold at the Dies R Us store)

Maybe it's because I was raised in South Africa ... I love wildlife cards and every time I make one, fond memories envelope me to remind me of happy times spent on the other side of the world.

So you can imagine that when I saw this giraffe stamp and die from Sue Wilson, I just had to get it. By the way I got these during a special order sale that Dies R Us has every so often.  The best way to know about these sales is to subscribe to their newsletter which you will find on their home page HERE.
To keep it all in the safari theme, I got Sue Wilson's tropical leaf stencil too which is what I used for the background of this card.

For the inside, I stamped the giraffe again, die cut it, but this time I snipped the giraffe off so that I could stamp my sentiment and have space to write my message.

Here is the short list of supplies I used to make this card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope I was able to inspire you to create a project, and  play along with us at the Dies R Us Challenges for your chance to win a gift certificate to the Dies R Us Store.  A new challenge begins on the 1st and 15th of each month. Visit our challenge blog, where my team mates showcase their creations to give you a little more inspiration.  Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Pinterest too.

Before I go, let me mention that Didi Crafts is our sister with warehouses in the US and Canada. This means that our Canadian friends no longer have to worry about huge taxes or expensive shipping fees.  It has some products that are the same as Dies R Us, but in addition, it carries international dies,  and other crafty supplies for a variety of crafts.  Go take a peek and be pleasantly surprised!

Till next time,
crafty hugs!
