Quilled giraffe



      Both my son's think that this is not my style ,but I liked this cartoon giraffe I found on the internet when I was looking for a cute giraffe I could quill.
     Why a giraffe? because it seems Akhil has finally grown taller than me and is very pleased with himself. For months I have been dragged to stand in front of the mirror with him to see if he has grown taller than I am . It would be  with shoes on , without shoes , after a meal , after a haircut ....Now I hope it his father's turn. My elder son Abi is more than six feet and this giraffe is for my tall boys. 


     I drew the giraffe on  a yellow colour paper and cut it out ,I added quilling only for the dark shade.Then I stuck thick black colour strips to the outline. I also cut out  the  tree and the bark of the tree from brown hand made paper.




There is also some good news. I won Kavitha's blog candy. 



      Kavi is my first blogger friend and of course namma Chennai girl. I initially visited her blog for her excellent paintings and then for her cards.  I have seen her grow more and more creative with her cards.She amazes me with her aptitude to craft . We both have one thing in common we both are not happy until we fill up our entire card::)

 For me making cards is just an excuse to quill ,I hope I learn to use all these cool stuff.

  Thanks for stopping by, have a creative day.

It looks very cute.. makes a very ideal b'day card for little kids! Must have been extremely hard to glue the outline of the Giraffe so perfectly.

I love your card... my son will likely be tall as well, it feels like he grows a little every day... I keep telling him he cannot be taller than me until he is 10 and he laughs at me and says he is going to keep growing so he can be taller than me sooner :-)
Hugs, antonella :-)
