A snippet card and a little announcement

Woohoo! I've managed to get back to the playground at last! I'm here to join in Di's crafty snippets challenge with another baby card for work. I think this is the last baby card for a while! (they must have moved the chair!)
I used a digi from squigglefly, a stamped sunflower(Chocolate Baroque), snippets of papers from kaisercraft and some very old ribbon. As I'm back in the playground I want to show you what I brought back from Rwanda for you... the Zebra were a bit elusive and kept nipping off into the trees, but this guy was very obliging! Now I know Miss Di is probably having a bit of a turn as to where we are going to put him, but we can get out of the tree house really quickly by sliding down his neck!
Now for my news...
 If you are a regular visitor to Craft a Scene you will have seen last weekend that I have joined their DT. I know that many of you who visit here regularly will know that I was delighted when the challenge started, and have loved making little scenes with my stamps to fit their themes. When Nancy asked if I could join the DT I had to say yes, especially after my top 3 spot last month on the theme of trees! Keep a look out for my DT card on the theme 'Majestic Mountains' on 21st October.
Thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments.

Congratulations on your DT appointment . Brilliant use of that sunflower with a baby card & I particularly like that this will suit whichever arrives - boy or girl.

Oh Sally - what fabulous news about the DT - well done honey!!

I love your new baby card - but can you please now make a get well lying here having the vapours at the latest wildlife in the Playground!! :(

In fact, I absolutely adore giraffes so would make an exception anytime - but don't let the others know else they'll be trouping in with goodness knows what!

Hugs, Di xx

What a cute card Sally. The image is adorable and I love the little rocking horses on th backing paper. Beautiful soft colours too.

That's a wonderful shot of the giraffe and don't they look majestic out in the wild?

Big congratulations on the DT post Sally. That will definitely be right up your street and is very well deserved. Look forward to seeing what you come up with on their behalf.
