Tues., Dec. 29, 2015 Big Hippo Thank You

I made this one as a thank you for the dinner invitation that was extended to us on Sunday.  Our wonderful neighbors invited us to dinner.  It has been too long since we have seen them, and we are so glad they extended the invite last weekend. I hope they like this card as well as the others I gave them. I am thinking I need to add a little patch of grass or dirt to give the hippo something to stand on! Yes, I will do that now!

Mon. 12.28.2015 Happy Bird Day!

This is one I quickly whipped up with the Beth Silaika 's Hippo Bird Day stamp set from Gina K. Designs.  Such fun stamps! Fussy cut, and popped up on  card stock that was run through a Cuttle Bug Dotted Swiss folder and layered on some pink card stock.  CAS but eye catching!

Thanks you visiting!

This one is for the polka dot challenge at StampTV.  STV15MON51.  My take contains some swiss dotted DP, in addition to the larger dots that were cut out on the Vagabond, using Spellbinder dies and a circle of dotted patterned paper I had on hand,  This is a fun Happy Birthday creation that I made on Monday, right when the challenge was posted.

Are you ready for Christmas, you only have a few days left!  Hope yours is a Merry one.

Tues., Dec. 22, 2015 Let It Snow

I stamped with the Let it Snow stamp set by Theresa Momber, with white ink on black card stock.
We haven't any snow on the ground yet.  What we did have a while back was very little that melted quickly.  Weather reports are saying we may possibly reach 70 degrees, in the next few days. That is so very strange for the weather here in Wisconsin, for the week before Christmas!

I used stamps from Gina K. Designs along with a scalloped heart I die cut, and was able to use the negative to sponge and create a background, for the mugs.

Thank you for visiting today!
