Harriet the Hippo & Giddy Bugs

Hello, everyone! A couple of cards to share with you today. First is a card that I made for Sunday Sketch #83 over at the PWCO Blog.


I used the adorable Harriet the Hippo from the Safari Friends Collection for my card. The patterned paper is from the Sweet Summertime collection by Echo Park and the sentiment is from the Strawberries set by Flourishes.


My second card is yet another reject. This was for PC's Nov/Dec call and I used one of the sketches.


The super cute bug and sentiment are from the Giddy Bugs set by Paper Smooches. The flowers are from the Friendly Flowers set. This adorable bug just makes me smile! =) I used a circle punch to create the notches on the corners.

That's all for today. Hope you have a lovely day!




Thanks for stopping by!
