Sweet Giraffe --- Sweet Puppy

For today's Splitcoast Featured Stamper Challenge 204 . . .LOVE Marisa's gallery - every card is just amazing. But of course, when I saw THIS ONE with the darling giraffe, I had to choose it! For those that don't know, I collect all things giraffe, and have since the late 70's!

In my card I used one of the very first giraffe images that I ever got - years ago - from Daisy Kingdom.
For the Featured Stamper Challenge we are to change at least two things from the original. Besides the images, I changed the way the sentiment was done, added a tag, and substituted DP for her solid CS.
I actually plan to mail this to someone! Stampers have been lamenting the fact that we don't often enough mail what we make.  It's true and I need to mail more too (another resolution)! This is going to my new baby second cousin!

And now for Joy #2 (see yesterday's post about My 100 Joys):
You have heard the saying about wanting to be the person your dog thinks you are, right?  I SO want to be the person my white labrador thinks I am! She is such a sweetheart.  I rescued her from a shelter two and a half years ago.  She has the sweetest disposition, and is always so happy.  She loves me unconditionally and listens to me gripe and whine and moan, and still thinks I am amazing. HAHA.  Well, she brings me a TON of joy, so today's Joy is all about Fiona, my sweet almost 3 yr. old lab. Isn't she cute?

The picture was taken on my phone last night, so it's a little grainy.  And yes, she is on the couch - the one downstairs that is the only piece of furniture she is allowed on! She was watching the new "Star Trek" movie with me. I love her!

My last of Christmas vacation - back to school and work tomorrow! I did get in another 4.6 miles this morning before church so I am up to 13.6 for the week so far. Thanks for the visit and have a wonderful day!
