Great Impressions Stamps – So Happy Together

Happy Monday!   I decided to take a break from Christmas cards this week.   I needed to step away from all the red and green for a bit.  Instead, I inked up this sweet image, Giraffes (H05), from Great Impressions Stamps.

When I first looked at this step, something with a mother and child or father and child theme jumped into my head.

But this time when I looked at this stamp, I thought they look like a happy couple.  I decided to use these sweet giraffes to create an anniversary card.  (My hubby and I are coming up on our 15th wedding anniversary!)

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a great day!
