Letter G is ready for it's big reveal!
There's a silly little Giraffe hanging out on Letter G

A Goose taking a Gander standing in Green Grass
Groovy Good Gumballs I'm sure they'll go fast!
And last but not least Letter G is color Green
It's the perfect color when you want to be seen!
The sketch done in pencil

To the closeups and the pops of color!

G is for Giraffe...8"x10" Sharpie/Prismacolor Pencil   copyright 2011
15 letters now complete
Next up letter H now that could be sweet!

G is also for a Great Video that shows the correct way to sharpen prisma-color pencils!
I had been having a lot of trouble with them breaking just as the point was perfect!
Who knew it was such a simple solution...and it WORKS!

"G" whiz! This is great! I loved your "E" too... this is one of the best alphabets I've seen :)

I also love how you called your pumpkin cake pops "cake on a stake"... you are so clever! I really appreciate how you play with words - you are definitely my kind of gal! (And I love making cake pops too... I'm thinking of making some eyeballs next! hee hee)

The G is great too! I love the slightly more uncommon G words like gumball and goose that are still adorable and easily recognizable!

Awe I love your G and especially the giraffe. I have stuffy's all across the top of my tv and your giraffe reminds me of them. My boys get me stuffy's whenever I'm not feeling well:)
Hugs and blessings

I love your alphabet images, Joni! They are so charming. The giraffe is so cute.

I have one grandson whose name begins with the letter "M" and one with letter "L," so I will be looking for your "L" illustration. :)

I also enjoyed the video -- I learned I was doing the wrong thing to my color pencils when sharpening them.

I became a new follower here and on facebook...glad that Lisa had such a good idea for a Boomer board for Twitter. Nice to meet you!

I love Green, and all the other G's today! Thanks for the video, learn something new every day! I usually turn the pencil!
