I've kept my figure...

I can so relate to this card! I used one of my favorite Hambo "fractured funnies" on it - as you can see, the outside says "I've kept my figure!". Open it up and it says "Unfortunately, this is the one I started with." hee hee! *sigh* So sad, but true. Now if only I had a sparkley blue leotard, maybe I'd be as self-assured and content with that fact as this super cute hippo seems to be! :-D I made this card last week and never got around to posting it, which is unfortunate because I played along with a couple of now-expired challenges to create it! The sketch was Julee's Mojo Monday #64, and the colors were the SCS Color Challenge (CC196) to use Taken with Teal, Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze and Whisper White. I struggled quite a bit trying to figure out how to add the sentiment on the front - and was quite pleased with myself when I came up with stamping right on some white taffeta ribbon! You can't tell in the photo, but I went over the black ink with my clear Spica glitter pen, so the sentiment has a little sparkle IRL. And I just LOVE the sparkle on the hippo!! You all know I love Stickles, but when I actually take the time to get out some glue and fine glitter - WOW. Soooo sparkley!! It just makes me happy. Even though I probably had it in my eyebrows by the time I was done! :-D Ok, I need to wrap up this post and go take a nap - thanks to those of you who left well wishes yesterday! I'm thinking I may have bronchitis, it's all in my lungs today. Yuck. I'm crossing my fingers some MucinexD will fix me up!! Thanks for stopping by today!
