Table for Two?

Now that's a BIG piece of cake(just how I like 'em!)! When I was making my party hat the other day and pulling out my hippy set, I noticed the little hippo could double as his own dessert cart/serving tray! Hippy Birthday indeed!


I made this card for my step father(whose birthday is NEXT month, I'm actually working ahead instead of behind, can you believe it?!), so kept it simple by choosing more subdued, masculine colors and leaving off the bling. The greeting "balloon" is on the 1 1/4" and 1 3/8 " circle punches.


Want a little 411 on the release? Check here each day for a teeny tidbit about my stamps to chew on before the countdown starts(Melanie's Munchies!) Nothing too revealing, but still fun to digest! :) Munchy #1: my new release has 20 stamps.

OMGosh, this is WAY cute! Yep, that tush could certainly seat at least 2, could maybe even be considered a bootth, lol! Great idea for Hippy! Oooh, bring on the munchies, Mel! 20 stamps...who hooo!!! Oh boy, what could it be??? This is gonna be so much fun! If you read this and have a sec., when does your Hoppy contest end and can I enter something too? I don't have to be eligable for the prize, but I have an idea for a hoppy project that just popped-in-there! tfs your fun deets, cant wait for more!

Oh! I love this card! 3/3 is my birthday and after my b'day lunch, I'm sure my hips look just like that! I'm too smart to check my backside in the mirror, though!

Great card!

How cool. That reminds me of my daughters cake loving hippo Maggie Lou. I had thought about putting that cake with the hippo stamp but I asked Gina if it would would work before I bought it and she said it was to big so I didn't buy it. :(
