Holly the Hippo, fixed!


Got it fixed! *notice the hint of a buttcrack?* BWAHAHAHAHA!! At least now its not bugging me so much. I put the buttcrack because jeans make me so mad nowadays. WAYYYY to low cut for me! And most of the time when you see girls bending over, you can see their buttcrack....should have put some thongs on her too, lmao!

Holly the Hippo!



*edited to add: Ok, so its bugging me that I made the jeans on Holly BACKWARDS!! OMG cant believe I didnt notice this till I put it on my blog, hahaha! Well, just gonna have to fix that.....stay tuned...yea right, like anybody reads my blog, lmao.
I am in love with this set from GinaK Designs by Melanie Muechinger! Just got this in the mail yesterday and have been wanting to put a pair of britches on that hippo forever, lol! And think Ill send this card to my daughter who ALWAYS asks me that question...well, she asks , "do these make my butt look big?" She might have a fit because I named the hippo Holly though...her name is Holli, hahaha!

I stamped 2 of the hippos and then drew some pants on one of them. Then I cut the pants part out and used that as a template to make the jeans. All colored with copic markers.

Also, I have to tell you about how awesome Gina K is. I accidentally cut one of my stamps set wrong :( and I posted about it at SCS, and she is going to send me another flower to replace that one. It was the one in the comfort and peace set, the free one when you buy 3 this month. Its so rare to get customer service like that nowadays so I think when you do, you need to praise them in some way, and this is the only way I have! Besides having a customer for life! lol!

I got my camera today...

And figuring it out is gonna be an accomplishment for me, lol! Or I'm just a bad picture taker, hahaha! They are coming out HUGE...and it has all these settings I can set it on to take a pic, havent figured out which is best for taking one of a CARD. Sooo this is the first one to post taken with my camera, lol. The stamp is from GinaK Designs, colored with copics. I think the cut out I did around the telephone looks a bit like a coffin though, and I wish I had of put some kind of border around the cork stuff there....was wanting it to look like a message board. *Edited to add, the phone didnt come on the table like that, did some masking for that, had to draw on edge on the table to connect.


Anndd, my printer/scanner quit working Friday. Have no clue why. Its not even that old. I bought it at Best Buy back in February. And also bought the 2 yr warranty so just have to take it in now...still a pain to do.

Couple of cards....


Another card on those little peach color invitations I made. Another one using stamps from GinaK Designs and another one saying "hats off to you" lol. Got hung up on that one for a bit. Used the cuttlebug again and colored with copic markers. Used twine for the ribbon. I have loads of this stuff. I make bracelets using it too.



This next card I used a stamp I got off ebay in a purchase I did that had like 20 stamps in it. Now I'm wanting all the fluffles! He is just too cute I think. Cuttlebugged and colored with copics again.

Beeeee happy!


Another card with the CB. Hobby Lobby had wood stamps on sale again, half off, so of course had to buy some, lol. This one is by Stampabilities. The bees have this goofy look on their face to em so I was a bit goofy and turned the 'B' around in the sentiment, lol. Colored with copic markers. And can't wait till my new camera is here...

My first cuttlebug card!


Oh yea, Im loving the bug! hahaha! One bug I can love, lol. Used the Swiss dots embossing folder and stamps are by GinaK Designs

I got these little invitations from Hobby Lobby on their clearance rack, I paid like 1.50 for 8 I think it was. They also had velum envelopes with them. So I also embossed the flap of the velum envelope with the swiss dots to match this and it turned out awesome too, added alot to it. Heres the card though:

A color challenge I did...


I made this card for a color challenge of one of my favorite bloggers at Paper Askew. I was inspired by all the bright colors mainly in it and I have an old umbrella colored just like this, lol. Soooo, dug out this stamp I've had for ages and used it. I used water color pencils and copic markers for the coloring on it.

And Ive FINALLY ordered me a new camera!! WOOT! Cant wait till it gets here. Scanning these cards just takes away alot from them, because I resize them so they arent so HUGE.

Colors look different..


Colors always look different IRL than when I scan them, lol. The flowers look more red on here than a coral color like the color of the card. AND I got the 'thinking of you' crooked....grrrrr..
