Had a wonderful week with our daughter and her two daughters - they have left here for Brisbane now before heading home to Wisconsin later this week.  The little ones wanted to 'make cards with Nanny' and they did!  We had a ball!  But card-making for me was definitely on the back burner, as I didn't want to waste a precious moment while they were here with us.  Today I have picked up the bug again, and made these CAS cards - have been wanting to try out my new stamp set from Annabelle Stamps - Garden Silhouettes and one that I've had for a while, Fanciful Flowers.  The flower shapes are so interesting, and I thought suited to a simple, no fuss card.

Gina K has a new release out today, and of course I took a look - her site never fails to encourage, entertain and inspire me.  While there, I noticed another challenge that took my fancy - Pretty in Pink - but it had to be something not usually pink.  No pretty flowers allowed!  So I looked at my Wild at Heart set of stamps and chose the giraffe, as it is so cute.  Here is my card.
