AlphabeThursday - G is for Giraffe


Welcome everyone to a new year of AlphabeThursday.  You can read other posts from this series on Ms. Jenny's blog, "...off on my tangent" every Thursday.  And you can find all my previous AlphabeThursday posts on the tab by its namesake at the top of this page, on the far right.

I've decided to pick words for my AlphabeThursday posts that can be used in my future children's Alphabet Book.  This week we are on the letter G.  It was three weeks ago that I thought of a great word:  Giraffe.  They are such interesting looking creatures and not easily mistaken in appearance.  This giraffe with its baby is on the first spread in my art journal for 2012.  Happy New Year!
Hope you come back to this site every Thursday and see my future art journal pages.  Click HERE to find out what other words bloggers chose for the letter G.

Giraffes have such an elegance as they move.

Did some research the other day about giraffes, and to my big surprize a lion is the only animal that can kill a giraffe? A giraffe kicks its opponent to death!

A giraffe licked my son's face once at the zoo! He freaked out, and so did I!

I love giraffes! You are so right. You can not mistaken them for another animal.

Giraffes are amazing, aren't they? Great choice of words and illustration. Btw what language is that in the background?

Karen S. said...

They are a most adorable and lovely easy going creature, that doesn't get enough attention!

Jenny said...

Wow. What a fabulous illustration. And what a wonderful idea to craft your links according to a theme.

I like writing for Alphabe-Thursday's like that, too. It keeps me focused on things I might not otherwise write about!

Thanks for a grand link for the letter G.

Your giraffe is glorious.

A+
