Introducing......























Well, I am tickled pink to present to you two of the new Hambo Stamps releases:
Giraffe - 2926 and Necks to You - 2914.

I seriously love this little giraffe that Tim drew, and the sentiments to go with it are so cute! The other sentiment says "Thanks for going above & beyond"! I love it!

It took me awhile to get this made; I had originally hoped to have it done earlier, but my carpal tunnel has reared its ugly head in the worst way. I have had symptoms for about two years, and wearing braces has helped tremendously, but I think I am past that, as today at lunch, I couldn't even hold my fork. Not good news for someone whose livelihood is in piano playing, and whose sanity comes from rubber stamping! So I am stamping (and typing) slowly with a few fingers instead of all of them! But enough of that! Back to the CUTE new stamps!

Be sure to check out all the New Arrivals HERE.
Read yesterday's blog post to find out how you can receive this giraffe from me FREE!

I made this card for the SCS Featured Stamper Challenge. Barbara (Stampfilled Dreams) has a wonderful gallery and I chose THIS CARD to case. I am sure you can see why! :)

Thanks for stopping by today. I will have lots more new stuff this next week, as we celebrate the New Year!
