Hippo Birthday!

School is still out but the twins are at band camp all week and I'm feeling like it's time to paaaarty!

Funny how fast things changed. Remember that time when I whined about being sad and lonely when the kids were at school? Ha! Not anymore!
from my Facebook page

Perhaps that's why I burst out laughing when I first saw that party hippo from the new LD Zoological. To think that I could actually relate to the joy it seems to be feeling. And school hasn't even started yet! Hilarious! (If you have not seen LD's latest collection, CLICK HERE to check it out now. I *heart* the party set!)

I can't help it. I just had to cut the Hoppin' Hippo out and of course, make a card with it.

Using Silhouette Studio (DE), I came up with another "Jin-Style" simple shaped card. I cut out all the layers from patterned, and solid color cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo machine. The greeting was printed on a sheet of patterned cardstock using my hubby's laser printer.

The card was assembled and put together using glue, tape, and foam tape (for dimension). I added Nuvo drops to the hippo's necklace to make it more interesting and made a tutu for her out of a strip of wired ribbon.

Here's the finished card:
