TGIF375 You're The Best

Happy Saturday, peeps!  I am practicing some more with the Give It A Whirl dies, along with the SAB set, Hippest Hippos!  So cute!  I had already started my card when I saw the color challenge at TGIF: 

The base of my card is Soft Sea Foam, and my front is the pretty Blushing Bride plaid DSP from the Awash in Beauty pack.  So here we go:

I stamped and colored all three of the hippos with Memento Black ink and Blends, then added some little Flirty Flamingo flowers and some Soft Seafoam speckles from Quiet Meadow around each one:

The sentiment on the front was also stamped in Flirty Flamingo and diecut with one of the dies from Give It A Whirl, matted with some Soft Seafoam; the flowers are from the Hippo dies:

The inside sentiment was also diecut with the Give It A Whirl dies; they are SO FUN and versatile!

Thanks so much for popping by!

Thursday would have been Ganae's 25th birthday, and she loved to hike, so Dana, Wayne & Cassidy took off and went on a long hike to Holtwood Nature Preserve, which is part of the Susquehanna River system.  It was a gorgeous day too!

I'll share more later!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

An adorable happy hippo she is surrounded by all these pretty colors! So cute!
It was a good day for that sweet trio to be together remembering their loved one doing what she loved! I love that Susquehanna and marveled at how many times we used to cross it on our way home to NY back in the day!

This card is just the sweetest, LeAnne! I really must give these dies a try and make one of these cards! Hippest Hippo's has to be the cutest set ever! Thursday was such a beautiful day and it was a great day for them to go hiking and they were in my neck of the woods, too! Shawn & I grew up right along the Susquehanna River a little farther north from Holtwood. I hope that their hike was a way to help heal their hearts and celebrate Ganae's life.

Cute, adorable card! Makes me smile! Tears for Ganae but what a beautiful way to celebrate and honor her birthday.

This hippo is the cutest, LeAnne, especially when she's winking! Love that plaid paper! What a great way to honor Ganae's memory as a family. Beautiful scenery!

How cute is she! This is such a fun card, LeAnne and the colors are fantastic! Hippos are mammals, you should link this up at Just Us Girls!

Love this sweet hippo card and you are totally inspiring me with your use of the Give It A Whirl dies! What a wonderful way for Dana, Wayne and Cassidy to remember Ganae on what would have been her birthday - it looks like it was a beautiful day.
