Water You Up To

Happy Saturday, everyone! I hope you are all having a great weekend and those of you on the East coast are safe from Hurricane Irene.
I have a card to enter into a couple of challenges today :) For this card I used my new Elegant Edges cartridge that I won from my dear friend Sherrie of Sherrie Scraps With Passion! Oh my gosh, I so LOVE this cart!! It is my new favorite! There are so many fun cuts! Thank you so much again, Sherrie!! I welded the base of the card on my Gypsy. I thought the loops could be interpreted to be jungle leaves. The hippo is from Create a Critter and I flipped her, just to be different :) The paper is all Core'dinations Core Couture. I used a K Andrew stamp from her Splashtastic Summer set.

  6. This is adorable Lisa! I love that cute hippo and the loop border is great! I love all the shimmer/sparkle of the paper too! Great Job :)Amy

  8. This is so cute! I love the color scheme!

  9. Like the cute hippo & the border. When I use core'dinations textured paper with Cricut it tears most of the time. What settings do you use?

  10. Love Love Love the border, it goes so well with your design! Love the stamps!!

  11. So cute! Great colors on this, love the punch!


  12. I LOVE this, my sweet crafty friend! :o) The colors are positively yummy! That bright appley green is one of my favorites and it sure provides a perfect backdrop for purples and blues. You made every color stand out, which essentially means you're all things fabulous. :o) But we knew that already. I love the googly eyes, the heaps of sparklies, and the fabulous shape! I've yet to use that edge, but am anxious to. It's like a jungle party. :o) Such a smart use of it. Love the punnieness and how you used the flower cut-out on the card. And the ribbon makes me swoon.. as always. This is such a happy card, Lisa. Whoever gets it is truly blessed. :o) (OH and that's such a bummer about your missed challenge... with so many opportunities but so much going on outside of crafting, it's hard for us to keep track! What a disappointment, though. At least I knew ahead of time. ;) Thank you for being such a lovely bloggy friend!

    Hugs and blessings!
