Posh Girl :)


Hi sweet peeps and hope you are all OK today :)
I've got 2 card to share today, so firstly, it’s time to nip across the pond and join our friends over at the
Simon Says Stamp challenge and this week our theme is

Anything Goes

The DT are showcasing AVERY ELLE and MAMA ELEPHANT products this week -  you don't have to use them of course, but if you have them we would love to see them  :-)

As always, our lovely Heidi is giving away a fabulous …

… for one lucky winner to spend …

… right here :)

So ….


.. here's the old card and it's a bright one (IRL it would take yer eyes out at 50 paces!!)

The stamp set I used is Avery Elle Hipster Hippopotamus -and it's a  verry popular choice.


*Avery Elle Clear Stamps HIPSTER-POTAMUS Set HP Hippopotamus

It's a really versatile set I think because you could do a boy or girl hippo. I went for a girl hippo and I chopped her tail off and gave her a bow. I also over-stamped the specs and then glittered them in the style of ......


... the fabulous Dame Edna.

Hello possums :))))

I think they make our lil hippo look very posh indeedy!!


The papers are from a Doodlebug LOVEBIRDS 6 x 6 Paper Pad and the borders were punched using a Martha Stewart Punch DOILY LACE TRIM Deep Edge Edger punch.




So that's what I did and now it's time for you to let your creative thing do its stuff.
I'll be back soon as soon with some more cardage but till then have a fab day and huggiest of hugs to all xxx

So glad I came by - Dame Edna... Ally McBeal... those were the days. Anyhoo, hot pink. No other color goes with hippos IMHO. Fabulous card.
