Hippy Holidays!

While my mom was here for Thanksgiving, she suggested I dress up the "hippys" with some festive winter stuff for the holidays, and she was right, it's been too long since I played with the giraffe!! (Amazing to think it's been almost a year since this first set of mine was released! And I'm pleased to report it's still one of my biggest sellers, thank you!) :) With a little masking I was able to place Rupa's ornament in its mouth, and popped up the front ornament on a dimensional. Image is colored with Copics, sentiment if from "Hip Hop Accessories", ribbon is from the Gina K Pure Luxury Holiday assortment.


I just can't get enough of using WHITE now for a card base now that I have the Gina K 120 lb Pure Luxury CS, if you haven't tried it, you must, you won't be sorry!


hmmm, now what should I have the hippo do....? oh, I know, back later! ;)
Tomorrow, it's my week to host the Papercraft Planet sketch challenge, please come check it out, I've created something really special with "punch" in my sample you won't want to miss!

I truly love how you took pictures from a calendar and framed them. I have had some really beautiful pictures and hated to throw them away. Thanks for sharing.
