Hippo Monday :)

I hope you had a great weekend! We were busy furniture shopping and finally found some at Creative Leather. We ordered a long sofa and 2 chairs with ottamans in a really nice caramel color. Everything but one chair will be here at some point next week...now we need to decide where to put the old sofa and chairs...they'll probably end up in the basement.

Nattie had a sleepover at a friend's on Saturday night, so it was just Iain, Jamie and me at home. We played "Sorry" (Jamie's favorite game at the moment) and watched "Mr. Bean". Jamie got a set of his DVDs at Christmas and he just cracks up!! He really does have an awesome sense of humor, even at the young age of 6! LOL!

Yesterday we all went to Krispy Kreme after picking Nattie up...gotta have the sugar rush before embarking on a few hours of furniture browsing :)

Today's card is another one from the Stampin' Up! set I recently bought. How sweet is this little hippo? The patterned paper is some scraps of a 7 gypsies set I used for another project. Aren't the colors fun?

Glad to hear that you had a great weekend. Mine was pretty good, but tiring also.

I just love that card! It is very vibrant and cute. I saw that stamp in the stampin up catalog the other day.

BTW- I've been thinking of doing cards now for a while, but as usual... just haven't gotten my behind down stairs to do anything.

Super cute Toni! Love the layout and the pretty patterned paper scraps. Your life sounds so busy, I always wonder where you find time to stamp (but I'm sure glad you do)!

Gotta love Mr. Bean! We have a boxed set of his TV shows. :-) Super cute card, too! I LOVE that paper. I used it for a class and would use it over and over if I could!

Awesome use of your paper scraps. I may have to jack this!
