Awww..I thoroughly enjoyed making this card! When I saw this style in the box of pre-embossed cards from Michael's, I knew I had to do something from Pun Fun! That set is so versatile...luv it! :o)

I stamped the cutie pie hippo in Black Staz On and colored her in with my Going Gray ink pad and blender pen. I also used Pink Pirouette and added red glitter with a glue pen to the balloon and her toe nails! Too cute! I added some Pink Pirouette ribbon and it still looked a bit stark up top, so my daughter, Kim, suggested putting some "bling" on some of the circles! What a girl she is sometimes...her and I were crafting together tonight and that was there ya have it - a VERY simple card in a matter of minutes....

We're off for now - the kids are wanting to open their Christmas Eve present and then it's time to get things ready for the big guy to come. This will be the final year that we keep it "secret." Calvin knows there isn't a Santa, but Kim is on the fence LOL...she's not sure. Still will keep the tradition going, but just won't be a secret anymore (the presents will be though *wink*) I guess that's all part of growing up :o(

Here's wishing you a very magical, peaceful, blissful night. Remember the reason for the season and be grateful for all you have in your life. Love and hugs. Merry Christmas!


  1. Very cute, glad you had Kim's help, she is her Mother's daughter..awesome job, love the bling! Cool!

  2. I think this would be an awesome baby card or birthday card. Thanks for an idea of how to use this card.

  3. Ummm... Miss B has a birthday coming up REAL quick! *wink* I LOVE IT!!
