So I had to go overboard....more hippos!



I got this hippo stamp set 20+ years ago! It was made from a company called Rubber Duck. Has anyone out there in blog land heard of this company? Due to the fact I am a physical education teacher and my love is hippos...I bought the stamp! So today was the first day I have every used it on a card. I used to use it on students papers! I saw this tilt card a few days ago and thought I had a great idea for the lion in SU’s Wild about you! I couldn’t get it to work…so I have lost all the spare keys to the house, rental house, cars, PO box, etc…and I found this bag of old stamps! (Boy my stories ARE just getting longer!) So I put together this card. I found the tutorial on Oodabug Alley and wanted to share a rare creative card with you!
Can you see how his feet have moved...he is running very hard and happy while he is doing his work-out! On the side I stamped words from A Muse called Inspiring words. Hopefully you can see them on the side of the card. When I work out, I like to think I can dream, believe, share, celebrate, create, become, and enjoy! Words to live by! Have a great day! kt

Love your tilting hippo! This is the cutest card I have seen all day! I must check out Chatmaine's tutorial! Guess I will search for some cute hippo stamps! Speaking of old stamp companies, I am trying to track down a cutie from days past! A company called Stampassions (out of business),and the stamp was called Duckie Ride! The one lady I know that has one, will not sell! So SOS on that stamp! Hugs and hippos, Deb
