Hip Hippo Ray

Tessa's birthday was yesterday, she turned five. Boy was that exciting for her. Here's the card I made for her. I will post details later.

I used Stampin' Up's Pun Fun set. Colored the image in with a blender pen and Rose Chalk Ink. Then went over it with Regal Rose ink. The stars are wheeled in Rose chalk ink. The Paper Lace is from K&Co. The brads are fromthe Target $1 spot (Nat gave them to me for my birthday). I also used stickles on the ballon, bow, and hippo toes. Green paper is SEI. Pink striped...?

This is Tessa and I at Chuck E. Cheese's. Mrs. Cake mouth.



And here's a silly picture of Jakob, Kate (Tessa's best friend) and Tessa. Tessa's hair is courtesy of her dad, but psst don't tell anyone. He doesn't want anyone to know that HE put the rollers in her hair the night before and helped her lie her head down on her pillow so they wouldn't pull. He's too macho. When I took them out the next morning she had quite the afro, but I tamed it down a lot and she was so happy with it. Pssst also don't tell anyone that When I had longer hair Travis used to put those same rollers in my hair so I could have Shirley Temple hair. He can't stand anyone to know that he would stoop to such feminineness.
So excited to be getting my hair cut tomorrow. Take care.
