Casology Safari and Addicted to Stamps and More CAS

Hi there!

I am back from a few days away.  I have a pile of challenges I want to play in before I head to California to visit with my Dad.  I have posts pre-done for that time period, since I may not have a lot of crafty time and I hate to let the blog sit idle, especially since I am having a give-away - read about it here.

The cue at Casolog is Safari, and at Addicted to Stamps and More it is Clean and Simple week.  I thought this would work well for both challenges.

I like to send hubs cards while I am away...I often leave them around the house for him to discover as well.

Here is one of the cards for this trip:

I think the girl is putting forth the question...look at those eye lashes and the standing giraffe has a bit of a huh what look in his eyes. Or maybe he's just wondering how she's hanging down like that?

The stamp set is stacking animals from SSS,and the sentiment -- that's good old computer generated typing. Now how to get it in the perfect place you might wonder?  I printed it out on a plain sheet of paper somewhere the middle; then I put my colored panel over it and saw it through the panel using light from the window. I taped it  to the paper with some washi and printed it again.


Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. another cute card for hubs - so funny with the one giraffe upside down!

  2. Aw, Cat, what a romantic and fun card to leave for hubs! He's a lucky man!! This is a winner in my book! And thank you for the inside info on cg sediment. I have always wondered how people did that!! (Dad's in southern CA, right?) Hugs, Darnell

  3. So clever and fun, Cat! I think it's such a great idea that you send and leave cards for hubby while you're away, and that you've added eyelashes to the girl giraffe! LOVE the expression on his face, too and your sentiment is just perfect!
    Have a safe and fabulous trip to California! You will be missed!

  4. HA!! such a great design, and perfect sentiment, Cat! I love your romantic side, AND your pun-y side, too! Have fun...

  5. Oh you did make me laugh, Cat! This is just so fabulous--lucky Hubs when he finds this one!

  7. This card is so cute and so funny! I love your design and your coloring is perfect! Thanks for playing along with CASology!

  8. Cat, this is hilarious!! Especially since a guy actually said that to me once - in college no less!!! It was the first and last date. Anyway great layout and perfect sentiment (and sentiment placement!) Thanks for playing along with CASology this week!

  9. Super cute and funny card Cat! Love your design and the white space. So glad you joined us at CASology this week.
