With spring like temps this week, my mojo must be thawing out some. I had fun making these cards for the nephews even though they are not needed until May.
I was inspired by Time Out Challenge, Just Us Girls, and Addicted to CAS, Its a 7th birthday celebration and Birthday or celebration challenge at Time Out, and animals are the theme at Just us Girls and Addicted to Cas.
I had to make two cards, they were such fun to color.
I do love a good punny card, so the sentiment just cracked me up. I used copics to color the animals and since its for males, I kept the colors to two with the neutral for the hippos. I love MFT's dies for grounding shadows. I never know what to do with grounding the images, problem solved.
Thanks for visiting.
Wonderful children's birthday cards!
Awwwwww...too CUTE Cat and YAY for getting your cards done so early...just don't forget where you put them until then!! (That's something I would do!!) Hugs. :0)
These are two cute scenes that you designed !!! I like both of them very much.
That pun has always cracked me up - your MFT characters put it out there perfectly! So cute! Now if someone would just add the TWO EWES!!
Two darling cards for your nephews Cat! Love how you colored and grounded your images too! Thanks for playing along with us at Just Us Girls.
Look at you getting your makes in early Cat! Love these cute hippo cards and I bet you were smiling the whole time you were making them! Thanks for coming to play with us at Addicted to CAS:) Vicky x
Super cute. Yes, love this weather.
So glad you are getting some spring weather. we had half a day yesterday and now it is blowing a gale and pouring with rain. The sun has definitely done the trick as these cards are spot on. They are both perfect xx
Two super cute cards, Cat! Beautiful Copic coloring, especially in those masculine colors and I love this great sentiment! I also love how you grounded the images, too...just perfect! Thank you so much for playing along with us at Addicted to CAS!
Adorable and fun for those little guys!
So adorable, and yes -- love the puns! As for grounding, what die did you use? I never thought of using a die but it's an odd shape and I can't place it...
Wonderful colouring and super adorable cards....great 'grounding' of the cute Hippos x.
It's never too soon to have fun, and these cards do look fun! I have a thing for punny sentiments, too. This one is great with the two critters! Cute coloring. Love the grounding dies.
What an adorable pair of cards. Love how you have used those hippos and adorable birdies. Thanks so much for playing along at Time Out.
What a cute couple of cards, Cat ... fabulous colouring ... and such a fun, punny sentiment to go with those adorable critters! Hugs, Anita :)
absolutely adorable and beautifully colored! So glad you joined us at ATCAS this week
Hi, Cat! It's no surprise that so many people have responded so favorably to your hippo cards! I like that you have limited the colors to gray and brights and particularly like the second one with the bright blue balloons. I'm glad it's not football season so you could play with us at ATCAS! Hugs, Fran
Grounding dies--what a great idea! These are both such fun & so cute, Cat!
Your colouring is so beautiful! Great -bit naughty- images together like this... Thank you for joining us at TIME OUT!
Super cute pun-ny cards! Love the placement of the little yellow bird. I like that you kept the color combination to yellow and blue and neutrals. Thanks for joining us at Addicted to CAS.
Two totally sweet cards - I also love the punny sentiments! Thanks so much for celebrating with us at TIME OUT! Jill
These cards are so darn cute for kiddos...and a few adults, I can think of ;-)
