Pile On The Fun

These cute Hippos look like they are having a fabulous time jumping into piles of leaves. This tapes me back to my childhood.

There is a video on my YouTube channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Card Making Tutorial

The burgundy card was cut using the scalloped die and a piece of blue card was cut with a slimline stitched die
The green card was cut using the stitched landscape die
A tiny cloud was cut using the beige card and the 4 were glued together

This was then glued onto a slimline card base

The sentiment stamped in the smoked pearl

The images were stamped, coloured and fussy cut out.
They were arranged and glued onto the scene before a few nuvo drops were added in mustard gold

Thank you for reading
