Happy St. Patrick's Day

I know it is a bit early for this one, but since my work schedule is going to get crazy busy in the next few weeks, I needed to get this one made before the holiday passes! I am notorious for not getting cards in the mail, so perhaps this time I can make it!

The stamp and sentiment is from Hambo Stamps. I love the play on words and the cute frog image. I decided to use paper piecing on the shamrock and the hat since I was having trouble getting two different copic colors of green to work.

Copic Colors Used:
Frog: YG11, YG13, YG17
Buckle: C2, C5
Hat Band: BG000, BG01
Beard: C00, C0

I decided to do a little faux stitching around the just needed something...

I Love You Tu-Tu Much!

I adore this cute little hippo from Hambo Stamps! I decided to go with a Valentine's theme for this one. I used some older Basic Grey paper and even did a little paper piecing on her leotard! What hippo could pass up a polka-dotted leotard???? On the inside I added the sentiment "I love you tu-tu much." I know it is cheesy, but for Valentine's day anything goes...

Copic Colors Used:
Hippo: C00, C0, C1, C2, C3
Tu-Tu: R22, R27, R29
