Have you seen Melanie Muenchinger's blog yet?!

Have you seen Melanie Muenchinger's blog yet?! I purchased her Just So Hippy Set from Gina K, and I just LOVE it! I have so many ideas of different things I want to use them for, but like my title says, "I am always workin' and wishin' I was stampin'."



Note: You all get a real treat today-- TWO posts in ONE day! LOL The last post was just for fun, but if you want to see it, scroll down or if you came here from a link for today's post you will have to click on my Title way up top to get older posts to show up at the bottom of this post, etc.


So, Melanie is having a really sweet giveaway with a really cute purse and a new stamp set (not yet released), so you may want to stop by her blog. She is celebrating being in the Top 100 blogs! Pretty cool, eh?! Of course *roll eyes* I am lessening my chances by telling you all about it though, so if you win the new set . . . you have to remember old Kelly with a stamp-off of some images . . . OK?! :) (just until I am able to get my own set, dontcha know).


Okay, so in honor of Melanie, and I hope I do her proud, here is my first card with my Just So Hippy stamp set -->

I thought the cute little Henrietta Hippo would look really cute in Groovy Guava cause she just looks like a groovy kinda girl. Have you seen her yet with the cute little heart tattoo on her butt? (Yep, pretty groovy) *wink* Well, no heart tattoo this time, but maybe next time. I also used purely pomegranate and some matching ribbon. She is quite forgetful, so she tied a bow to her little tail. You see . . . the sentiment says, "Sorry I'm so behind!"


It seems like I always remember someone's birthday 2 weeks in advance and then forget until the day before or the day of . . . well, our postal service isn't quite that fast. I guess I should send those cards out 2 weeks early when I am thinking of it or like our Groovy girl up there . . . I get a *little behind.* :) Hope you enjoyed the card. I know I enjoyed making it. Don't forget to stop by Melanie's blog. She has some adorable cards, and DS is such a cutie! You can see him in some of the pictures, too.

SUCH a cute card. Love it. Especially love the color scheme. And I am the exact same way about birthdays. I really should start whipping out some "belated" cards to have on hand, so I'm not even more belated LOL

Hahhaa, Kelly this is just too funny!! I love it!! and your colors are amazing - so bright and cheery! Great for spring just around the corner.

Kelly,

I love Melanie's stamp designs too. You did a great job thinking "outside the box" on the color scheme. To me hippos MUST be grey! ;-) Cute card...very festive. She is definately a "hippy" kind of hippo.
