Hip-hippo-Ray!

This week our featured Trendsetter Corinna is challenging us to create a card that Celebrates Summer! From ice cream cones to camping and everything else in between, the possibilities are endless! Have fun and we can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Despite all the crazy rain we've had this summer (we were beginning to feel a little like Noah here....) the last days have been so warm and sunny and dry and my kids LOVE to play in the water, from the sprinkler to water fights, to a pool.  So I thought these adorable hippos from the new TSG set Zoo-Pendous would fit perfectly for a summery challenge...


Isn't this pair just CUTE??? I so love their cute grins with those teeth and their googlie eyes!    You can probably also see that I stamped the rain drops from the set Under the Weather, cause I think they're so fun with their little smiley faces too, then I embossed the dotted embossing folder over top.  Lastly, some fun "waves" added with the dotted border punch along the designer paper (old SU DP).  


Brand new cardstock from SU as well, one of the new In Colors called Pool Party.   Yummy shade :)

So join us in some summery fun!

To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a card that celebrates Summer, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (August 8). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!
