It's a Jungle Out There

This card for my friend Debbie who had surgery this week.
Not connected to the card I made in the last post.  Two 
of my friends had surgery this week.  I chose this image
because she LOVES giraffes.  It seems like it should
be simple to color, but since I am new to this type of 
coloring, it was a challenge to me.  Still learning how to 
use my big girl crayons! 

Their smiles are contagious!
The Laughing Giraffes are from Designed 2 Delight

Thought the sentiment fit perfectly!-
