Crafty Calendar Challenge

April already!! I just about managed to get a card made on time for the Crafty Calendar Challenge where the theme this month is "humorous" with the option of adding embossing.
I made a tall card and drew the giraffe hoping the sentiment is pretty obvious (high!)
I haven't been able to craft (or anything else) lately as my mum has been ill and needs a lot of care but I managed to grab some card and come up with this one on a quick scurry through my stash and took it with me.
My mum is now recovering slowly so things are less tense.She can walk to the living room with the aid of a rolater and can feed herself (slowly!!) so progress can be seen. I hope she makes much more progress as she seems determined to try but is so easily exhausted.
Thanks for all your messages of concern.

I had a quick look through some challenge blogs and found that this card also fits the following challenges..
Truly Scrumptious.....sketch
Color Throwdown..yoyo yellow,garden green,soft suede
Crafty Creations....anything goes
