The retiring list from Stampin' Up was announced on June 1st and, sad to say, the Animal Crackers set was on it. This is such a stinkin' cute set. And it is fairly new. Hopefully, it will be replaced by a set just as cute. I made this card as a birthday card for my friend and upline Debbie Naylor. She is an awesome leader --- so much talent. Check out her blog here. I was casing a card made by Diana Gibbs that you can see here. I switched up the DSP from the Sweet Pea pack that she used to the Tall Tales shown on mine. I also used the awesome chocolate chip satin ribbon. I used the branch out of the Two-Step Bird punch. I am surprised I have not worn this punch out --- I seem to use it all the time. The sentiment is from Heard from the Heart. I colored the giraffe with my aqua painter.

Happy Birthday, Debbie!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day!!!!!
