The Stamps I Use

Playing along with PWCO Sunday Sketch 28

Hi folks,

I managed to return to the craft room tonight so now I'm sharing my take on Sunday Sketch 28 at PaperWorksCo. And yes, those are Basic Grey Euphoria papers! I told you there would be more cards using that collection!

As usual, I couldn't leave the sketch alone and had to flip it around a little. I just thought that cute little Harriet the Hippo from the Safari Friends Collection from PaperWorksCo just looked better in the lower right corner of the card. I think Harriet has always been my favourite stamp from PWCO, she has such a happy smile. Although ... with the new release around the corner I bet there's going to be some stiff new competition!

I pulled out my Copic Markers again to give myself some more practice with my colouring (sadly, I did not get into the certification class here in Ottawa in May and the June class in Toronto is on a weekend when I already know I will have pager duty due to my coworker's vacation plans ... big pouts.... ).

I also dug into my stash of Robin's Egg Dew Drops to add a little something extra to the image panel (cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities Small and Large Petite Circles) and the DP.

Not sure to whom this card will be gifted, but I do have the perfectly matched sentiment if I want it to be a birthday card "Hippo-Bird day to you" is one of the sentiments that coordinates with the Safari Friends Collection so....

I'll be submitting this card to this week's Critter Challenge at Totally Stampalicious. I was fortunate enough to win two sets of stamps from them recently (Farmer Hawg and a big set of sentiments) and have a couple of fun cards in mind to make with them as soon as I get a chance. You should know that they are launching four new sets of stamps on April 22nd from Bugaboo stamps and there will be a blog hop to boot!

Hope you had a lovely day!
