Here is my latest card based on the new sketch over at Inspirational Card Sketches.
When I saw this stamp with the darling hippo and the cute little bird, I just had to have it. When I was growing up, I learned to love hippos from my mother. She loved hippos and every time we went to the zoo, we had to see the hippos. She had hippo knick-knacks around the house (and she isn’t really a knick-knack kind of person). Unfortunately, her days of collecting hippos came to an end when her sister sent her one and the note read, “when I say this hippo, I thought of you.” At that point, my mom reconsidered her passion for and association with hippos. Now, mind you, my mother is, and always has been, very slim and never bore any resemblance to a hippo. I may have to hold on to this card and send it to her for her birthday later this summer. I know deep down, she still loves hippos.
