Necks To You I Am JOY-full

Good morning!

A quick post today as I have a huge "To-Do" list to get through before the snow storm predicted tomorrow!

For today's Free for All Challenge 46 . . . and yesterday's Ways To Use It Challenge: Twine. . .

I used my absolute favorite image by Hambo Stamps and a cute sentiment that goes along with it. The little button in the corner with the twine is a heart, although you can't see the shape from the picture's angle.

I love this little giraffe that Mr. Hambo (Tim) drew (I begged and begged for a giraffe!), and it was perfect for today's Splitcoast F4A challenge!

Read about the Hambo Stamps DESIGN TEAM CALL here! And I am extending a personal invitation to all my blog readers to apply!  Monica and Tim are delightfully fun to work with and I love the images! You will too!

I LOVE nice grocery stores, where you have more than two brands to choose from, and there is a fresh meat counter and people that can actually help you.  So I have fallen in love with Whole Foods in Omaha.  I spent several hours there recently (grocery stores have always been fun for me if they have STUFF!) and loved the color in these two aisles.  The first is olive oil (and so many to choose from!) and the next is hair and skin care products. Not next to each other of course! So my Joy #5 is Whole Foods in Omaha, Nebraska.  I wish it wasn't three hours away!

  1. Fun giraffe and card - I like the combination of the plaid and heart papers.
    And gosh, that looks like a fabulous place to shop. Our nearest supermarket has cut back on some of my must-have items and I'm struggling to find them in other places - especially the Fair Trade hot chocolate. 3 hours - that could get us over to Galway, almost down to Cork with the way the roads have improved recently.

  2. Can't look at anything Giraffe without thinking of you.....wonderful card and LOVE the sentiment.....what a fab grocery store and pics in for you

  3. Super cute card! I never knew there were that many giraffe stamps! Where in Nebraska are you? I live in Missouri!

  4. I love your giraffe - it is so pink and so cute!! great job coloring!
