Vanessa said...

What you did with your beach photo was just too cool! Here is comment #1! I will leave another one later.

Dianna said...

Gina ~
My favorite tutorial that you've shown us is the stamped onesies. I've never stamped on clothing before and am inspired by your tutorial. Thank you!

Heather said...

I love Gina K stuff and goodies are even better! I love your blog and seeing all the great stamps and card ideas! Keep them coming! Thanks

Denise... said...

Oh I just love the stamped onesies! Adorable. Congrats on such a successful blog! Wow!

Denise... said...

I subscribe via the google reader. Love it that I see whenever you post something new!

Jana Weaver said...

Look at that loot! WOW!! Ok...My favorite project so far has been the onesies I think...they are just too darn cute! Keep up the awesome work!!

Jana Weaver said...

And for my second comment, I would love to see a flamingo, perhaps an Ostrich, and some other fun "big" birds! Then we can all have gone to the birds! :-)

Jennifer (jennifer-g on SCS) said...

I loved the reverse topper card (the froggie) what a BRILLIANT idea!!

Your blog is fab, I read you every day. :)

Jennifer (jennifer-g on SCS) said...

Oh, and for my second comment, I would love to see a flamingo and/or a polar bear on a future set - those are some of my favorites when I stamp. :)

Tamara said...

I don't "officially" subscribe to your blog, but I *do* have you as a subscription within my Google Reader. does that count?

I love your stamps, and tutorials. Unfortunately, living in Canada, I *still* don't have your hoppy stamps to play with. I hope they come soon because Easter is coming quick I and want to make some stellar cards with your great stamps.

I think my favourite tutorial so far is the Valentine's day candy box with the hippy giraffe. It was really cute, and extremely easy to duplicate. I love the look, and will be using this again as a simple, yet special and fun way to give candy and other small treats.

Dana said...

Wow! That's awesome! I sub to your blog via Google Reader! Does that count? I'd love, love love an elephant! I just think they're so cute and can be used for ANYTHING!

Dana said...

My second one.. I LOVE the Frog Reverse Topper AND the tutorial! I haven't made one of those yet but your tutorial gave me cofidence to try! Thanks for your sharing your creativity!

Sara said...

Congratulations on your milestone. I'm now subscribed to your blog. I'd love to see a rooster in a future set. I have a friend who collects them and it's very hard to find any rooster stamps. Thanks for the chance to win.
Sara

Sara said...

I liked your swinger card. What a great idea that I've got to try. Thanks again.
Sara

Michelle said...

Well... let's see. My fave post has to be the Froggy went a Courtin.. It's stunning. I love all the details you put into it. It's a winner you should enter it in contests, as you should with the rest of your cards.. too cute. But that's only my fave of your card posts, my fave of your other posts is the last one before this one with your son's "pondering" photo. I just love how deep in thought he looks and the sunsest is magnificent. We always say that our youngest son is an old man trapped in a little boy's body..

Stampin Cats said...

awesome blog candy. thanks for sharing.

Alison said...

Wow, your work is gorgeous! I just saw your blog and will definitely need to favorite it!

Melissas said...

I REALLY love Froggy Went a Courtin'! Although the onesies are adorable, too :) I love that your tutorials are easy to follow, and I hope to see some sea creatures in a future set :) Thanks for sharing and congrats on your success.

Michelle said...

2nd comment..

I think I would most like to see a yorkie(partial I own one) I think it would blend perfectly with the beautiful faces you illustrate on your animals and not to mention the great sayings you could create with it,or a koala, or how about a snake( I know different direction but again great sayings to go with it and if anyone can make a snake cute you can!!!

Anonymous said...

I love the giraffe one the best. Hope you come out with some bird stamps.

Michelle said...

third comment...

I love that your sets are soo substantial. You get so much for your money when purchasing one of your sets so I would guess that there would be4 or 5 animals in your next set. Keep them coming Melanie. The are getting a lot of use here!!!

Patty W said...

Love the hippy giraffe! Too dang adorable!

I'll guess 3 animals?

thanks !

scfranson said...

Everything you do is inspiring. I'm guessing you'll have 7 animals in the next release.

Anna Jones said...

First timer to your blog. 20000 in 2 months. You must be doing something right.
A cute little baby elephant would be good.

Tejal said...

Do I get 2 if I read your blog via a reader?
Anyways, I love the window box with the giraffe..then the stamped onsies, then the swinging monkey..phew..there's more..actually I love everything you created, and I love the lil animals that you come up with..

terri said...

I love your blog and look at it daily, but I just signed up for email updates.

Tejal said...

For my second one,
I hope you've got at least 5 more animals , and I wish you could create a lil puppy with huge eyes.
A dolphin, maybe a bird this time around too?

I love every set of yours..keep'em coming..

Thanks for the greatest ever blog candy..
Surpasses the first..

terri said...

My second comment: I would love to see rabbits, bears and birds.

cathy said...

I've been a stalker of your blog for a while now, lol. I'm so new to this I didn't know I could 'subscribe'. You are an awesome artist and I'd have to say my favorite by far is the froggy gone a courtin...that was adorable and so creative how you used him! My guess on how many animals? oh FOUR! and Id love to see some kitty cats! Thanks so much for sharing all you do with us!

StampinginKansas said...

Wow..20K in 2 months! My fav post is frog went a courtin, but they are all good so it's hard to choose just one.

StampinginKansas said...

I would guess that you will have 5 animals in your next release. How about a really cool Cow for the farm girl in me.

Claire said...

Oh wow , one of my favorite bloggers I subscribe to is having card candy time . Big fan, I eagerly await for your blogs :)
Your tutorials are great. Your inspirations are great.

Claire said...

Thinking back I'd say my favorite tutorial was the onsies. Of course the goodie holder ( can't recall the name) where it has four pockets ( like a candy dish ) is good too. The watering pail was cute too...oh ok Ilike it all LOL

mom to munchkinz said...

Love your blog, I get so many ideas from it! Congrats on 20,000 hits- thats Amazing. I really love any of your projects that feature frogs- they are my fave! What about something with fish? We have African Cichlids and they are such pretty colors! Anyway, keep up the good work!

Nancy said...

Wow Thank you for the chance at some cool blog candy! I have to say that one of my favorite posts was top of the heap because I like how you showed that one stamp can have a "tushy" side LOL. I think I would like for you to come up with a farm animal theme stamp set.

misse336 said...

I love the frog card with 3 panels. I saw it on SCS when I was surfing the gallery and had to stop on over. It is so cute. I may have to get that stamp now.

The frog reverse topper tutorial was great too. I haven't made it yet, but have it bookmarked so I can make it in the future.

Thanks for the chance to win such an awesome prize.

Angie said...

#38I love your blog and regularly check it (at least once a day!) but I don't know if you'd say I'm a regular commenter. I hope so. Here is my first comment anyway.

Christine said...

awesome blog candy! Thanks for being so generous!
Your card with the sunset is amazing........and so appropriate with the He Is Risen stamp set!

Peggy Maier said...

My favorites would be your tutorials for the baby onesie & the hippy candy box! Since I subscribe via your RSS feed, I'm leaving one more comment below.

Angie said...

39. I'm leaving another comment because I just subscribed to your blog. I never subscribed before because I check the blog so often, that usually I don't get an update email until after I've already seen the post!

Peggy Maier said...

I'm supposed to guess how many animals in your next set... hmmmm... how about 3! In the near future I'd love to see a set with penguins!

Angie said...

Geez, I tried to number my comment earlier, but in the time i typed it and sent it, 2 other comments were posted and my numbering was off! You have a great blog, so I don't blame em! My favorite projects have been the ones you do with your new stamp sets. Specifically I LOVE Froggy went a courtin' and the onesies! I think maybe you'll have 4 more animals on your next stamp release, and I'd love to see a dog (I love dogs) or some cute lizards and dinos (for boys). But if it's from you, I'm sure it will be great and I'll add it to my "Gina K. Wish List" on my blog!

Andrea Leigh said...

Melanie ~ a couple of favorites - the recent card where you used your own photo was just gorgeous, and the 3 part frog diving for flowers was great! I would LOVE to see a llama ~ my personal favorite!

Etha said...

Oh that's some delicious blog candy!!
post number one :)

Etha said...

Animals in your next release, hmmmm, hopefully FOUR! I love your critters :)
I think my fav tutorial is the one with the frog hopper, I've never done a card like that but admired them and now with your wonderful pictures I know what to do!

Jackie said...

I just love the "Frog went a courtin" card...actually, they're all sooooo cute! I would love to see a collection of your cute frogs...and would love to see some cute turtles too!!Congrats on you blog!

Jennifer said...

I liked the lamp. :D I loved that idea. You could use it for kids or more sophisticated decor.

My guess for the next animals in numbers would be....4.

In my next comment I will tell you which animals I'd like to see next. :D

Whimsey said...

WOO HOO; you're not kidding when you say blog candy eh?

Jennifer said...

And I would looooove to see doggies next. :D Or oh...dinosaurs..RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRR! LOL

Whimsey said...

Whimsey said...

3rd post because I don't just lurk; I comment too! :) I have loved seeing all the things you can do with your hippy and hoppy sets; thanks for keeping us inspired!!!

Mary said...

Holy Mackanoly!! You sure have put together quite the prize package! Long-time subscriber, first-time commenter... Let's see, I think I like the post "Froggy Went a Courtin". It was so inventive of you to have him jumping into the pond and it looks great! And my guess is that you will have 5 animals in your next release. Thanks for the opportunity to win some great stuff. Mary Pickett #53

Mary said...

Here's my second comment to your blog candy post. I wanted to also say that I like how you copied the picture of your son at the beach and used the sunset for your Easter card. Good eye and way to think outside of the box! Mary Pickett #54

Vanessa said...

This is my 2nd comment. I would like to see some fish. . .i know it's not an animal, but i think fish would be great!

CAKVD said...

FABULOUS blog candy!!! I bet you'll have 13 animals in your next release. I'd love to see horses!! My favorite tutorial is the onesies. How cute!!!! Thanks!

Lee said...

Hmmmm............favorite project here......probably the Onesie in the Chocolate Heart Box!! That was not only a precious little outfit.....but a fantastic and detailed tutorial!!! Thanks for such a wonderful and enjoyable blog!!

Erin Smetak said...

Here's my first comment! i just love your blog! I subscribe to it, so I won't miss any creativity!

For your first question, what was my favorite project that you've made? Well, I think I will have to say your clear box with the giraffe. That blew me away! I want those boxes just so I can do that same thing!

Erin Smetak said...

On to my second comment!

The number of animals in your next release? Maybe 7? No matter what, I'll have to have it!

Erin Smetak said...

Ok, last comment! What animal would I like to see in the future? How about a bear? You can turn it into a teddybear, polar bear, panda bear, grizzly bear. Whatever?! I'm all about versatility, so thought this would be pretty cool. And I haven't seen many bears among the other stamp co.'s.

Heather F said...

Yay! What awesome blog candy! I subscribe, and I love your inspiring posts! The stamped onesies was my favorite! I have yet to make one, but I plan to do so when my cousin's kid comes along.

Darlene said...

One of my favorite projects is Frog went A Courtin. I love frogs and would like you to add an alligator to your animal line. I am thinking maybe you will be adding another 6 animals for your next release. Darlene L

Heather F said...

hmmm... number of animals? I think you'll include at least 4, maybe 5. I'd love to see a dog in your next set! :)

Anonymous said...

My favorite post are "Pillowy Hips! Sweeter than Apple Pie", where you make the "reverse" window box.
I think there will be 5 animals in your next release, and I would like to se an zebra or a lion in a future set.
Thanks for the chance to win a beautiful prize

I'd have to say that my favorite thing on your blog so far is your daring monkey holding her bikini top. It totally made me LOL when I first saw it!!

Bobbie said...

I loved the decorated onesie -- adorable,affordable & practical!

Lisa (lakind) said...

Wow! Over 20,000 hits in 2 months is awesome! Keep up the great work!

Darlene said...

This is my second comment as a subscriber. I am thinking of another animal I would made into a rubber stamp--Seals--they are so much fun and I love how they walk on their flippers and clap their flippers. Thanks again for the blog candy prizes--they are awesome and I would love to win! Darlene

Bonnie said...

I appreciate the fact you admit to sometimes being a cheap/lazy stamper!

Suzanne said...

I subscribe to your BLOG with Google reader and I am so glad I do. I don't want to miss anything.

Suzanne said...

I love seeing how you use your stamp sets. And also the tip sheets you post for your sets. reading your tips opens my mind to ideas of my own.

As to future animals I would love to see pets. Dogs, cats, gold fish etc.

msfitzie said...

I have really enjoyed the cards that you have pieced the main character...loved the frogs, bunny etc.
They're "cute" but also catch the eye because they leap (no pun intended) off the page.

Judie said...

Love all your hippies and hoppies, and the wonderful things you do with them! Your tutorials are wonderful. How about some kitties in the future?

msfitzie said...

This is my second comment as a subscriber....
How about a Chihauhua with attitude? They're little but they don't know it and they're so ugly, they're cute. They remind me of a cat in a dog body!!

Anita said...

This is my very first time to your blog - your animals are just the cutest. I love the Froggy went a courtin card - adorable! I fairly new to blogging and Gina K designs are very new to me!

http://melaniemuenchinger.blogspot.com/

Marilyn said...

Your ideas are always fresh and amazing - I am always amazed at your creations "come alive" with your stamping touch! Your "hoppy" designs are adorable - how about things that fly next? Ladybugs, dragonflies, butterflies? Thanks for doing such awesome blog candy - unbelievable what you are giving away!!

Allison said...

Wow. What great blog candy. I absolutely love your blog and stamps. My favourite project is "Hips and Hugs" 'cause I adore the hippo stamp. It is my favourite!

Jan Scholl said...

I have you in my Reader and I would like rodent stamps.

Hannah said...

Hmm, hard to pick a favorite but I guess it would be the 3-panel frog "story."
I second the vote for fish!

Hannah said...

Oh, also, I subscribe via Google Reader. I'm predicting 10 stamps (including words, etc.)
And that's great blog candy!

Bee said...

Waow! Now that's what I call a blog candy! Look at all those ribbons *eyes glimmer*...
Thanks for the opportunity!♥

Bee said...

Second post!!! Congrats on the success of your blog but it's well deserved!
I would say 4 animals in your next set... and I hope one day to see a little zebra in there!!!

Also if I can suggest it I would love to see babies with their moms (animals). The other day I had this idea for a pregnancy card with the hippo having a little hippo in its belly...I tried it and it looked a little creepy so I put it aside for now, LOL... but I love babies animals with their mom (or Dad BTW!!)

Thanks for sharing!

Terri E. said...

I would guess that you will have a horse :) okay, just wishful thinking. Maybe an elephant. I am sure any animal you create will have the same charm and character that the others have.

It's a good life!

Mary Dawn said...

my favorite project is umbrella (ella, ella, ella) bunny

awesome blog, awesome giveaway

Neva said...

WOW Gina what a wonderful bag of goodies you have to give away here. There are so many fun projects I really don't have a fav. I enjoy brownsing the blog and have it listed on my blog so I have quick access to it day. I have learned so much since blogging and find so many new sketch, turtorials,etc.
I am sorta hopeing for a turtle in the next release. I would love to see a really cool turtle on his back with the sentiment "hope you are back on your feet again soon", "just laying around", "have a lazy kinda day".
Anyway just some thoughts.

Cat said...

hi Melanie! really SWEEEET candy! i just love the ideas of all the cook embellishing items. i'm not a frequent commentor because i've just found your blog in the last week through a link from GinaK's site - but i'll be back to visit! LOVE your art!

mom to munchkinz said...

This is my second post! What can i say your blog rocks!

Ryan, Lisa and Abby Foust said...

What great blog candy! I would love to see a whole bunch of sea animals or some more farm animals -a cow and pig would be adorable!!!! I am guessing 5 new animals in the next release.

I love your blog! I loved the card He Is Risen. You are so very talented.

I would love to see a cute bumble bee or two and a hive in your next set.Also, a sea turtle would be cool

bfiddy said...

I have both your sets, but I have not had the opportunity to play with the just so hoppy set. My son is such an animal lover, and I really appreciate the versatility in your sets. My 3 year old son would love to see an elephant stamp. I would love to see a cute Koala stamp. I love all of your tutorials, and I am learning quite a bit about stamping, being rather new to the whole thing.

Debi H. said...

I love your blog! It's always a treat and full of fresh ideas.

Mandiannie said...

Oh Wow! You have tons of comments and I know that I just might win, but even if I don't I have to say that I am impressed with that cross card! It looks awesome!

Your onsie idea and card are so cute. Great idea that I'll have to try. You have a great blog and thanks for sharing with us.

Even though I may not leave a comment every day, I do check your blog daily. Your work is awesome and very inspiring. I would love to see someone come out with a cute little panda bear. The ones I've seen have been a little scary. Thanks for a chance to win the blog candy.

That's an amazing number of hits in 2 months!! WTG!!
The way you created the bunny onsies was pure genius! All of your tips, tricks, and cards just convinced me I HAD to have both the hippy & hoppy sets, so I bought them :)
I'd love to see you design some cute horses, mice, or dogs one day. Maybe even a complete "Old MacDonalds" farmyard :)
TFS such an incredible prize package and writing such an enjoyable and creative blog! I love coming here to see what you're doing next!

Hi...I love how bright and colorful all your work is....please add a kitty to your design. :) I am a definite cat lover. Jennie

Linsey said...

woah, hold the phone! This is a smorgasboard of stamping yummies! And I'm hungry, hehe! Do I have to pick just one fave? Choices, choices! I think that the bunny card I recieved from you is the best because it's mine! It is now referred to as *my precious* and it may be framed for sentimental purposes. Yes, I am a bit of a loon, but this is perfectly sensible. My husband is considering committing me...is there stampers rehab? Oh, who cares! The first step is acknowledging you need help and I just haven't hit my rock bottom yet, snort! I'm going to think more about what I think your next set should include and post again! hugs!

Paula said...

Unbelievable to have so many hits in such a short time. Know what that means? You are a great stamper and please love to see what you create. Keep it up.

Linda SS said...

Besides the fact that I LOVE your cards and the bright color combos you use, the thing that I enjoy most about your blog is that I find I always have a smile on my face when I view it. There is something about your creations that make me feel happy:)

I subscribed ... and bookmarking this as a fave --- several of your articles I want to re-read leisurely when I'm back home from work.
Animals I'd like to see: dolphin, raccoon, camel or llama.

I just love your overall creativity. It's hard to pick a favorite because it's all good!!

Wow, Melanie, it is hard to pick a favorite . . . because I LOVE THEM ALL! I just purchased your Hippy set, and I really LOVE the frog on the Hoppy set. I will be buying him too! I love the beach scene in your card below! Thanks for a chance to win some great blog candy.

Littlekel90 said...

I am guessing your next set will have 5 animals (no real reason--just a guess).

Patty W said...

I like them all, it's hard to picka favorite!

I wish I had just a smidgen of your talent! Very creative!

Thanks!

Monika/Buzsy said...

Yummy! I can always use some fat free candy! :o) I really liked the onesie card... but you always come up with some 'clever' idea! I think you will have 5 animals in your new set... maybe some kind of a 'cat'... TFS!

denise said...

The giraffe is my favorite. I love the hippo too..... your work is incredible and I am so glad that you are blogging! Thanks.

denise said...

Here is my second comment. I think that there should be dogs.... cute dogs with some cute sayings.

Cindy said...

Hello and Thanks! Thanks for your blog and the creativity it will inspire in my future! Being new to papercrafting and just now trying to accumulate supplies, I have only recently discovered your blog and think my favorite project is that cute, cute onesie! Having 2 grandchildren still wearing onesies and 2 on the way, I see my fair share of them and yours is perfect!

cindy royal said...

My second post.... forgot my animals guess... I think 6, because 6 pets isn't too unreasonable, is it?

Anna Jones said...

I signed up so I can leave a second comment :-)

You have 8 animals total on the next one. I hope my cute little baby elephant is in there.

Kathleen said...

I love your blog! Hmmmmm...I'll guess that there are 7 animals in your next set----I guess I should have read all of the entries to see if I'm right!! :) Thanks for your generosity!

Kathleen said...

For my 2nd comment----I'm looking back thru your entries.....I can't really pick a favorite, but I did like the "Frog Reverse Topper" entry---I love tutorials! I'm not too creative, but I love to "copy things"! So tutorials are right up my alley!

Carol said...

Well I left a message earlier...but got an error message, don't kknow if it will show up or not. Either way, I subscribed so I will make another comment. Fantastic blog-just found it. I really love the card that led me here. A real beauty. I would love to see a really nice elephant stamp. Congrats on your blog.

Dorothy said...

I have loved all the samples you have on your blog. I have purchased both of your sets so far and love them. I especially love the giraffe and the frog. I loved the giraffe candy holder you made for Valentine's day. I would love to see some pinguins in a future set. Congrates on all the hits.

Andrea Leigh said...

I just realized that I get to comment again because I do have you in my google reader (and can't WAIT for your blog to show up there every day). And if there were ever a time to be greedy THIS IS IT! I just read ALL of those wonderful comments. And I'm going to guess either 0 animals (if you're going a different direction for this one) or 8 - YOWSA! That would be A LOT!

Annelies said...

If I have to pick one project I really liked recently I'd choose 'froggy went a courtin'.
At this moment I'm into bird stamps, so one can never have enough of these!

Bee said...

And since I comment, apparently I can comment today too, LOL!!! I just was reading the other animals suggestions... I'd love to complete the zoo one day! :-) and I would LOVE (besides the ZEBRA that I know you will include at some point because you love them too ;-)) to see a KOALA and a PANDA, those are just the most adorable little things, and I don't think there are a lot of stamps available with those ! :-)

Rita said...

Count me in! Congrats on having such a terrific blog! I luv your blog & your stamps! My favorite is the onesie tutorial project, that is such a cool idea!!! My guess on how many animals in the next release is: lucky 7!!!

Jessie/knightrone said...

I am going to guess that there are 8 animals, and I really hope one is a pig!!! I would love a cow too. You should do a fish, and an ostrich too. It really doesn't matter, cause whatever you do, I am going to LOVE IT!!!!

Libby said...

Hmmm - you're an Austin gal right? How about an armadillo and/or a bat!! :-) Here's my favorite animal, and I would be SHOCKED if it ever appeared in a set... a golden lion tamarin! :-) Or a meerkat!!! :-) Sorry, I'm probably not being helpful... LOL

Anonymous said...

Love froggie went courtin'. I'm hoping your next set has an elephant, flamingo or panda. I'm guessing you will have 4 animals in the next set. Thanks for a chance at the blog candy.

Yay, how fun Melanie! I think my favorite project you've posted was the Monkey in the bikini... or not in the bikini! :)

I'm guessing there are 10 in your next set... but that's a lot of animals! or maybe they aren't animals at all... bwwwaaahhhaaahhaaa. *wink*

I would love to see 'Northern' animals.... moose, bear, eagle, salmon, deer, etc. How fun would that be????

Karen B. said...

I think you will have 6 animals in your next set. I also think they will be either an ocean theme, birds or farm related. I check your blog every day as you are very inspirationel. I just tried your reverse topper card last night and it is so much fun and so unique from the plain old card format. Thanks for your wonderful sharing and ideas.

Diane said...

I am so happy to have found your blog,thanks to tyrymom!! Love your work you are awesome!!

Jessie/knightrone said...

Okay, third and final comment(the perks of stalking you!!LOL), I think you need to do a lion, porcupine, skunk, flamingo, possom, I could really go on!!! How bought a dog or cat, you haven't gone there yet!!! You could use my super cute(JK)dog Sophie as a model, if you can get her to sit still!!

Diane said...

It's me again,I love the set with the hippo and giraffe,it's on it's way to my house,I can't wait to get
it,what a great set you've designed!

Diane said...

And for my 3rd comment,boy i'm so lucky to have 3 chances...I would love to see little boys stamps,like bicycles,skateboards,snowboards for
us northerners,boys and they're toys!!!

Margaret said...

I love your He Is Risen card. I never thought of cropping the scenery from a photo and use it on a card. Just brilliant.p

Margaret said...

Here's my #2, but I don't know where I fit in but I just found your site yesterday. So I am not certain how many comments I can post. I love all your stamp designs. I am itching to purchase all of them, but I have a moratorium on purchasing any more stamps till I have an image of each of the stamps I already own. I am still searching for some more stamps I know I have but don't have the images stamped yet.

jackie said...

love your blog and check it daily as it comes directly to me each day!!! woohoo for me!!!

jackie said...

my second comment...to many of your ideas to choose from...the onsie is a favorite and i love to copy it for our baby showers...love you giraffe how many animals lets say an even 6...what type animal would i like to see...any!

Jarie said...

Just love how you did the card with the cross and the sunset. That was my favorite and so very inspiring.

Janet

Jenna Z said...

Wow, what an awesome prize package! I would of course LOVE to see one of my favorite animals, a corgi!!

Stampmouse said...

wow awesome blog candy love subscribing to your blog. blog candy or not your samples are great

Stampmouse said...

oh lets see I say 4 animals in the next release. LOVE animals. and my favorite blog post couldn't pick one. I do love when you show your coloring of a card

Ryan, Lisa and Abby Foust said...

Maybe there aren't any animals in your next release... Maybe you will draw some cute little kids.... or animal mommy's and babies!!! that would be CUTE. I'm going to guess 12. This is my second entry - I LOVE your blog! I now have both Hippy and Hoppy and love to see your ideas!

Janet said...

I read your blog daily and have even entered your "Just so Hippy" card contest. My favorite post was probably the one with tutorial for the hippo who had swinging hips. Cute idea!

Janet said...

For my second post, I am going to guess that you will have 4 animals in the next set. I hope I am right. Can't wait to see what they are?!!!

Janet said...

And for my 3rd post, I want COWS!!! I love cows. I collect cows. Before I moved I had a cow kitchen. I also think that skunks, turtles, or gheckos would be cute.

Sandy said...

I love the picture of your son, he must be a thinker, It looks like you caught him lost in thought at such a young age too cute! The card you made out of the sunset is amazing. WOW

Susan said...

My first comment: Congrats to you on your milestone! I'm guessing 5 animals I like all of your tutorials, but really liked the one where you showed us how to add little things using the monkey.

Susan said...
