Trouble in a Tutu...


Hi Lovely Bloggers...

Hope you're all OK and enjoying the last bit of summer.....  it's cooled down lots here and we had a full day of rain on Friday..  yucky!  My lovely OH is working this weekend, so I have craft room time...  

Today I'm sharing a little card I made yesterday, using the very cute Clearly Besotted Trouble In A Tutu clear stamps.  I missed the boat when these stamps first came out and had to wait for them to be restocked before I could get my little hands on them...  but they were worth the wait!!

Of course, the little hippos had to be wearing PINK didn't they??  

Materials Used:
Dotty Pink Card - Anna Marie Designs
Colouring - Copics
Hippos - T0/1/3/5
Tutus, Shoes and Bows - R81, RV55
Glitter card and glitter from stash

Oh my goodness.... how I loved colouring those little hippos and making this  card, and I also enjoyed fussy cutting all around the dancers and the banner.  Now, my lovely Mum used to call me a 'fairy elephant' when I was little.....  maybe she really meant a ballerina hippo?!

Big hugs and Happy Sunday
