Happy Thursday stampers, scrappers & crafters!
I have hippo fever! LOL! I can't get enough of this adorable hippo! I am stamping him/her like crazy! I just love the angle of the butt of this cutie! There are endless sentiments for this one! I have some great ideas, as soon as I replace my ink cartridge I can go to town with it!
I thought since there was so much punch of color in the card layers, that stamping the hippo in Pink Passion and not coloring him was effective enough in this case, what do you think? Would you have liked to have seen him chalked and shaded the hippo lightly? Just want to know what you all think, since I value your opinions so much!

On the home front, I have a painting project in progress...each day depending on how I feel, I work on it a bit. I have finished 2 window frames and window sills, and the casing /molding around the front door (inside) , the chair rail (some of it) and I started on the wall in kitchen. There is something about fresh paint and spring! I love Cottage White ( that would be a good name for paper) by Dunn Edwards. (Dunn Edwards is top brand here), it is used by many high end painting contractors, and what a difference good paint makes! I am using a semi-gloss for these particular areas and it goes on like a dream! Looking great thus far! My body is not appreciating this extra activity! It really is pissing me off not to just do what my motivation and mind want to do! Little by little, instead of being completed in 2 days, it will take me a week. I just have to go with it ! (wink)! I am exhausted and am looking forward to a bubble bath and rest! The end result of my efforts will be fresh and nice! Eventually! He he!
Hope you have all had a really wonderful day and you are all well. I will be back soon! Thanks for visiting today! Deb
