Stamping Bella Gigi the Giraffe I'm So Sorry Card

Hello Dearest Readers,

Well, here in the desert southwest, the temps have been over 110° F (43°C) with the monsoon making nightly appearances! We've had the most wonderful thunder and lightning storms this week with more to come. Last night, for example, I sat with a timer and discovered that one clap of thunder rolled from somewhere behind my home northward for over 30 seconds!!! That was just one single thunder clap! The bolt of lightning was so bright and seemed to be just above our house. The walls shook! Other lightning bolts were equally as bright, but not close enough to shake the house! Other claps of thunder did continue to roll for over 30 seconds, though. After the first clap seemed to go on forever, I decided to use a timer with a second hand and see just how long those rolls of thunder kept sounding in the night sky! I was so surprised!!! That's one thing I love about living here. The thunder storms are fabulous! All the years we lived in Vegas, the thunder would just boom and get quiet. Not here!

Today is "W"ednesday at Magnolia-licious. I would love to share with you a card featuring Stamping Bella's Gigi the Giraffe Stuffie. I thought she was just so stinkin' cute! I chose to pull out my Copics to color this sweet image. I hadn't used my Copics in ages. I didn't even know if I would remember how to use them! LOL I think I did OK! Here is my sweet card:

Because it was an apology card, I wanted to use bright and cheery colors. I chose eggplant, purple, white, and rainbow colored paper/cardstock to create this little sweetie. Here is another shot from the side:

The interior panels are finished with matching papers, flowers, and die cuts.
