A Happy Birthday with Little Hippo

Wow!
What a great day already. I have been super busy this morning and I still have more to do on "the list". My list is going to be all about crafting today. I want to get to visiting everyone and chatting with those I have missed. I need to work on sending e-mails too. I have a ton I need to respond to. Sorry for the delay, but you will hear from me soon.
 
I made this card last night, but was nodding off before I could finish the post. I wanted to make sure everything made sense and was spelled correctly before sharing. I am hoping the pictures looks bright enough since I took them late.
Isn't she too cute in purple and yellow? My favorite is the gift bag on her tail.
Materials:
Bo Bunny paper ~ Sun Wash Calico (yellow)
Creative Imaginations paper (purple)
white card stock
Create-a-Critter Cricut cartridge ~ hippo (p. 44) cut at 2 1/4", gift bag (p. 30) cut at 1 1/4", and sentiment (p.27) cut at 1"
purple polka dot ribbon
purple button
yellow craft thread
purple gems
wiggly eyes
 
I am quite thrilled since I was able to pile on 8 different challenges.
 
Challenges:
Tuesday Morning Sketches

Have a FABULOUS day! I am off to get some more crafting done. How exciting! Hoping there are a bunch of new challenges posted already.

Stay Creative,
Georgiana

  35. Making the hippo out of patterned paper is such a great idea. She looks so cute. Love the shopping bag hanging off her tail! Has to carry it somehow, right?
