Keeping It Real @ MAWTT

Let's face the facts! It's Thursday and time for a new challenge at

Judith is in the hostess with the mostest this week and she picked the challenge 
Keep it REAL! 
no fantasy images!
no angels, fairies, non living things or untruths!

Now this is not at all a hard challenge, but for the life of me I sat at my desk for hours going through all my images and just could not think of anything to do or what I thought appropriate :#  So in the end I thought to 'play it safe' and make a baby card with this too cute little giraffe.

Hmm... looking at my photos now I release that the base DP is upside down (oops  never noticed while putting it together lol) The image is from my random stash so I do not know who or where it is from, but he is colored with Spectrum Noirs.  The DP is Prima and the ribbon, bow and pearls are all from my stash. I love the bright and cheery yellow in this and it has mixed great with the distress touch too I think.

We have an adorable prize this week from the good folks at
Wild Orchid Crafts! 
They have supplied us with a $15 Gift Certificate!
Wow! Thank you!!
