I'm "Just So Hippy"


Really, this set was probably named after me! I love it so much and here's yet another card with the cute little (?) hippo, this time. I must say, Melanie Muenchinger has made a great set and I can't wait to see what her next designs will be. BTW, check out the Contest by checking the rules here. If you've got the Just So Hippy set, you can enter.

This is a card I made for DH. We are always saying, "Hey, Baby" to each other, so this sentiment and the hippo just worked for me. You can buy this set from Gina K. Designs. This style card has become popular of late and I wanted to give it a try. And, I love the Heidi Grace designer paper which I bought while attending MOA last September. Imagine, I still was able to find it. Absolutely amazing! I used machine stitching and went very slowly and carefully and this has been my best effort at machine stitching so far, I think. It's straight, even and, well, good, for me. I coloured the hippo with Copic markers, of course.

Supplies:
Cardstock: Pixie Pink
Designer Paper: Heidi Grace Love Blossoms
Stamp: Just So Hippy
Ink: Palette Hybrid Black
Accessories: Machine Stitching

Great coloring on the hippo, Barb. Love the stitching, too. I don't sew but ended up getting a Janome Mini sewing machine...yesterday I figured out how to wind bobbins! Next up, how to thread the needle, lol. Thanks for sharing your wonderful valentine.

Barb - great card. That set is so cute. Might just have to have it! Can I still put cards in for bingo numbers? If so, here's a couple I put up tonight:

Great card Barb. I too like the stitching. I have used my regular sewing machine but I am so afraid of ruining the needles I don't do it much.
