A Bird and a Hippo

Hi Everyone, 

you probably are thinking now I that I am completely crazy, but don't worry, I'm not....
I made this card specifically for my blogging friend Carol from Just me: c, after she left me a real funny blog comment about the birds being larger than hippos in her part of the world...never mind that she lives in Canada and they ain't havin' hippos there, chuckle...


Used one of those crazy birds by Tim Holtz. The sentiments are by Stamplorations - Noteworthy and Hero Arts. Also used one of the Mixed Media Grunge stamps. The hippo is by Rubber soul.
The colors I got from Colour me....! - see below. Added splatters, of course.



Linking up with :

The Male Room - birds

Love the story about your card, Cornelia! That's the awesome thing about being a stamper, is the ability to custom create cards. Super cute and I'm sure your friend will just love it! Thanks for playing along with us this week at Colour Me!

Hahahaha...You are AWESOME and I LOVE, LOVE and LOVE your bird-bigger-than-the hippo card! I kid you not: the ravens here ARE as big as hippos and even worse, they have 'face recognition.' So, those people who try to shoo them away, guaranteed their cars will be, shall we say, "splattered". True story! Anyway, I adore this marvelous creation and I'm exponentially touched my comment sparked your inspiration! You're a gem, my friend! Hugs and love coming your way...

Da ist dir mal wieder eine "Kicherkarte" gelungen. Ich musste herzhaft kichern!!! diese beiden Tiere haben so (fast) gar nichts gemeinsam - und vertragen sich doch.
Schönen Sonntag, liebe Grüße,
Flo
