Time for a new code word from Addicted To Clean and Simple.
  Stephanie is our hostess and she chose the code word SEA.
Here's what that word inspired me to create:
I started by sponging on some distress ink:
Seedless Preserves
Blueprint Sketch 
Peacock Feathers
Then I splattered on some water.

One of my favorite stamp sets is Mermazing by My Favorite Things.
So, out of this set I stamped some sea weed , the sentiment and
the cute fish ( popped up with foam dots) and called it done.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you can join us this week.

Time for a new code word from Addicted To Clean and Simple.
  Ceal is our hostess and she chose the code word MOM.
 I got a new stamp from Neat & Tangles called Friendly Florals.
I started out by stamping a bunch of the images and coloring them
with Copic markers. (my favorite thing to do is color!)
I even bit the bullet and spent the extra bucks to buy the matching Dies.
So, after I had a bunch of pieces and parts to choose from
it was fun just to assemble a bouquet( by taping them together on the back.)

I didn't have a stamp to fit the space so I used the computer and microsoft word
to print the greeting.
Thanks for stopping by.

Making another Box Card,

Birthday Hippo

Today I made a card using the MFT Challenge Sketch. 
Here's what I came up with using the MFT stamp sets
 Happy Hippos and All about You  

The circle ( cut using MFT Die-namics - pierced circle stax)
with the cute hippo holding the present and balloons was 
popped up using foam tape.
The printed background paper was in my stash , so I don't know who made it.

Put a little hippo on the inside, too:

Thanks for looking!
