Hippo-bird Day!

A word to the wise, I first tried stamping my hippo on green paper, and he ended up looking like one very sea-sick hippo LOL!

Discovered The Alley Way Stamps Topic Tropic is the perfect set for "Hippo-bird Day" cards, especially when combined with Alphabet Soup to complete the perfect sentiment.  Papers are a mix of Echo Park Country Drive and American Crafts Dear Lizzy Neapolitan, die cut with Spellbinders scalloped circle and EK Success scalloped border punch. Just had to add a cute button and some googly eyes for the finishing touches :)

Inspired by this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch, Creative Stamp Friends Paper Piecing, and Fashionista Challenge "Things with Wings".

Hope you have a FAB weekend!
