Hippo Birthday!

Hi there!
Happy Wednesday to you all!  We have beautiful sunshine today, although the air is still quite cool.  It was nice to get out for a walk though this morning with my little guy!  He went off to school this afternoon so I've managed to get some of my own play time in too!  I'm adding this card in to my collection of 'cultural cards' - I'm classifying the hippo here as the 'cultural' bit but it's clearly a very whimsical take on it, lol!!  I love this Gina K Design stamp and I haven't inked it up in ages.  Sometimes I get so stuck into my Magnolias that I forget about all my other gorgeous pieces of rubbah!
It's a very simple card design - I worked through this card with a headache - I think it's the stress creeping up on me for what's coming ahead in the next few days (music recital, softball season starts, charity event Saturday evening, sons' 1st Communion & Confirmation on Sunday) - phew, the list seems endless and I have soooo much to do still!
The hippo was coloured in with my copics and I glued a cute little bow on her tail!!  I love the sentiment and I plan on stamping Happy Birthday on the inside when I finish the card off.  This is not a usual colour combo for me but I have to say I love it!!
Thanks for stopping by today and all your beautiful comments!  Hope you're all enjoying a fabulous day wherever you're visiting from!
