hippo birdie seattle style!





Hello!

Blogging late & live!

Wednesday's...I Love Wednesday's...it's one of my days off. 

I've been up since 3 am cranking out cards...Pssstttt...Neat & Tangled's September Release starts this Monday and um, you're going to LOVE it!!!!

This little card was being quite squirrely...it wouldn't keep rockin' while I attempted to take a photo...

cardstock:  PTI white, misc gray  paper:  crate paper, lawn fawn  stamps:  lawn fawn hippo birdie  ink:  memento tuxedo, various copics  other:  circle dies, lawn fawn hippo birdie dies, impress seattle landscape die

I have Virginia to thank for my shaped card obsession.  


Did you see that I've joined my first international design team:


The girls on the Design Team are so sweet and have made me feel so welcome.  I'm playing along in the current challenge which is to use dies.  I've managed to use:

2 different sized circles
Seattle City Scape die
Hippo die
Birdie die

I'm also linking up to Virginia's View Challenge:


I used 3 different Patterned Paper in my shaped card.

and...last but not least



I used Lawn Fawn's  Hippo Birdie set.  This sweet 'lil duo always makes me smile.
