Jaffa the Giraffe

Morning All. Have you seen the fabulous Children’s challenge we have running? If not you can find all the details here.

Unfortunately Mr 7, Miss 4 and I started the Summer holidays with some nasty sore throats so we didn’t get chance to join in at the start of the challenge, but we’re back to crafting now and here is a card Elliot (Mr 7) made for his cousin for her birthday.


He used Jaffa Giraffe, but he wanted a big and little Giraffe inside a heart so I merged two images and shrunk one smaller before printing and he drew the heart by hand.

Thanks for stopping by
