Hippo Happy Birthday!

I like how his feet look like they are running!

I used Birthday bash card feature to cut the hippo. I planned on doing so much more with this card, but it was too small of a card to really add anything else!

I had a blast today shopping and having fun with some crafting friends! I totally scored! Almost everything in this pile was on clearance and I found Freshly Picked for $19.00!! Whoot Whoot!
Here is a photo of my loot!
I really chuckled when Mollie posted a photo of her little dogs at her feet so I thought I would share what is at my feet all the  time.. Hint Hint look at her big paws above!
Maybe not so little!

  17. Lucky you to find such great deals (Where did you go?). I have been to the stores so much lately that they do not have anything new. My husband took me shopping yesterday (his idea) and I couldn't find anything that was worth getting. Bummer! Okay...I love the hippo. I need to make one now! Thank you for joining Die Cuttin' Divas this week.

  18. I noticed the paws in the photos right away! Good for you getting Freshly Picked for such a great price. I got a good deal on eBay months ago but have yet to even open the cartridge. I can't wait to see what you create.
    Super job with the hippo card, too. It doesn't need anything else. It's perfect the way it is!
