Hello, Hello and off we go,
Let's get going and start the show!
Oregon is the place to see,
For super fun and cool tea party!
Alex, is who we are to cheer,
to make her smile from ear to ear!
She's been ill, not having fun,
But she'll be happy by the time we're done!
She likes animals of this I am told,
but they didn't say whether young or old.
They did say she prefers them TALL,
and she likes Giraffes most of ALL!
It started with a trickle and then a stream,
Giraffes from everywhere could be seen!
They filled her room and filled her house,
It might have been less filling if she liked a mouse!
This week's teaparty is for Alex. She is a young lady in Oregon who has had some significant health problems.
I made Alex a card, that says "What's up Alex?" and a tag. The card uses an adorable Bugaboo digi stamp. It is colored with Copic markers. For the sentiment stamp, I used a Stampendous stamp on a leaf I cut with my Cricut.
For the tag, I used a Kenny K digi on a chipboard tag. I sponged and chalked the background and used Copic markers to color the image. I cut more leaves and the grass with my Cricut and hubby cut the back off of the cute sun button and I arranged and adhered them. I made a little tag and used stickers for Alex's name. Lastly, I cut four different colors of ribbon and looped them onto the tag.
I think I am starting to like giraffes too!!! Except for their blue tongues! LOL

Oh Kathleen, your poem is Fantastic and the card and tag Fantastic too!! I would be hard pressed to say which I like better, the card and tag or the poem! I love the cute giraffe head on the card , sticking it's head out through the leaves, and the one on the tag is just as cute, standing tall as the tree!! So creative!!

Tee hee! Okay, so you are starting to have a poem reputation...which is an extra piece of paper tucked in your card! Giggle! This rocks.....I love it....and I agree, such a cute little image...both of them.....I love that you personalized it.....she will be so tickled.....and I agree giraffe are addicting...they are very fun.....
No word yet on your tickle card. If you still have not gotten it, I am thinking she might be out of town....she always answers her messages quick....so hang tight.....oh by the way, the person who drew your name LOVES giraffes! Bigtime! Tee hee...that's a hint!
