Giraffe & Bird- Day at the Zoo with my Best Buddy

Hi Crafty Friends,
Is it feeling like a JUNGLE where you live? It certainly is hot and humid in Chicago these days! Our zoos just opened and the Brookfield Zoo is my friend, Maggie's favorite spot to hang out (see below). We met through the Best Buddies Program and it has been life changing for both of us to create a lifelong friendship. I'm sharing the NEW Rachelle Ann Miller Creative Studios Giraffe & Bird Digi with you today and I even have a picture of Maggie and I with the giraffes!

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Do you like zoos?
A: Me? No... but I like Maggie so I'll go anytime with her!

  1. Both your card and the photos made me smile.
    Lovely DP on your fab card.
    And yes, I love the zoo, and love to visit it, especially when I am on vacation.

  2. You two are so cute together!! I am going to see if there is a Best Buddies program in my area. Thank you for mentioning it. Zoos: We LOVE animals, and have a membership to the San Diego Zoo. I do wish the animals had their natural freedom, but I try to think about how millions upon millions of people see them each year, and will hopefully learn about them, love them, and care about wild animals, and animals in general. Your card is adorable. We LOVE the giraffes, and birds, too. In the last year, we have really focused on the birds at the zoo. We have never really noticed them before this year. They are INCREDIBLE. AND we have some dove babies right by our back door--they will be fledging any day now. Did you know that they stay in the nest only 11-12 days? And that the mom lays one egg, and then another the next day? So there is always one that is bigger than the other. They grow VERY rapidly, too!!! It is fun, fun, fun to watch them.

  3. I just contacted them. Thanks for the mention :)

  4. Love the card. Yes I do like some areas of the zoo but not all.

  5. Really cute card. I love the image and the papers!
    I do like going to the zoo but we don't have one close by, so I don't get to go very often.

  6. Such a sweet card! Love the giraffe and L*O*V*E the darling birdie. Cute design, too. I like going to the zoo. I don't go often. I prefer an aquarium.

  7. Cute photos of your zoo trip and adorable giraffe card. I do like zoos.

  8. so cute card!
    not realy,I would love if they all are free..

  9. Such a cute card, I love it! Thank you for entering in the Word Art Wednesday Challenge. Ginny M, DT

  10. Not too happy about seeing animals caged up but I do like the educational aspect of it. The zoos near me are pretty good about making their exhibits as natural as possible, even it if means we can't see the animals half the time. My kids love we do go.
    Loving your fun photos!

  11. Cute card. Thank you for joining us a Polkadoodles challenge.

  13. Wonderful program, and a very sweet card. Thanks for playing at Time Out.

  14. Love this. Such an amazing program. I'll have to look into that. We just recently went to Brookfield Zoo. It's our favorite place and I seem to always take tons of pictures of the Giraffe's( those and the penguins are my favorite). Love this card. I'm going to have to get that digi. Thanks for playing along with The Crafter's Cafe Challenge blog!!

  15. Super cute card. Love the papers you used. I have that sweet image to but haven't colored it yet. I haven't been to the Zoo in years. Part of it I like and other things I don't. I think I would like it better if I went in cooler weather.

  16. Love the backing paper and cute giraffe, beautiful card!
    Yes, I love to visit the Zoo with my family or friends!

  17. Marvelous design. I like the zoo.

  18. Gorgeous card. I love the zoo.
