Bunni Hippo, Join our contest!

Don't forget we are having a contest using a great stamp from Sandra Caldwell called 2036 Bunni Hippo.  This stamp is one that you can get now for just $1.50.  Create any handmade project and enter the contest for an additional chance to win prizes.  The contest is on Feb 2nd.
There will be prizes given for overall favorites from Artist Sandra Caldwell and one chose by Holley Barnhart, then there will be individual prizes (die cutters) for each different image used!

Here's my card using this cute stamp


When you have completed your card(s), you can enter them HERE, if you don't have a blog, you can post it somewhere on the internet and email me the link or send me your image htondre@aol.com

Question of the afternoon: what is your current project? what are you making the most of lately?

for me, I am just making cards for everyday topics, though I am getting a few easter things done.  I am on several design teams that I make cards for, I don't have a particular project going right now.  Just cardmaking.  The next huge project undertaking I can think of will be Vacation Bible School.

Such a cute card Holley, I love the hippo and the bright colours. I have 10 demos to do over the next three months so making lots of things for those as well as Valentine's Day x

Laurian said...

That hippo is adorable and your colouring rocks Holley! What a great card.
I'm struggling to keep up with my DT stuff so I am generally making no sentiment cards that will adapt for any occasion. x

What a cute card! I just finished reorganizing my craft area with Stampin-n-Storage units and can’t wait to get back into papercrafting. I usually make cards for all occasions.

Super cute!! I just made a bunch of Valentine cards for a card drive I participate in every year. For the most part my crafting has been put on hold to deal with some family matters but I hope that after this card drive I can find some energy to keep the crafty vibes going.

LOL, an Easter hippo! Too cute! Right now, I am working on coloring glass with my Copics. Next is to go buy the cute images to do from Sandra!

Great job on the Bunni Hippo card. Love your layout. I am working on making "insert cards." These are cards I make to write on when I sent out swaps. I make use of all my scraps and embellishments when I make them. I do a bunch at a time as I have the table covered with lots of "bits & pieces." I just finished making 14 cards using the technique "One Sheet Wonder, which utilizes one sheet of 12 x 12 pattern paper. Lots of fun.

Cute card, love the lace! Currently planning my announcements for my upcoming move from sunny southwest Florida to Austin TX in a few months from now. So maybe a flamingo flying from the beach to a ?????? (unknown) with a Texas star on it. I'll figure it out.

Amy Martin said...

Super cute card!!! I havent been able to craft as much as I want to lately as Ive been dealing with Insurance adjusters and an unrealistic appraisor. My boyfriend was rear ended in my truck. Hes been in the hospital for emergency surgery and home for the last month recovering. I did get in my craft room a couple days ago and made a mixed media canvas for my DT. I make more mixed midea pieces on canvas, tags or cards and or cards and tags than anything else. I do wood burning as well. I like to get messy and use stencils and stamps in different ways.

Candy Meyers said...

I've started my Christmas cards. All coloring is done....just have to mount things. I'm also doing cross stitch ornaments for Christmas presents. I try to make most of my gifts, so I need to start early.

Jennifer Bradley said...

Adorable image, how could not resist this cutie. I am at present trying to get ahead with Dt card making. Hugs Jennifer xx

Cute card! I am working on a few notecard sets with matching storage to have on hand for those last minute gift needs! TFS!

Kajcyika said...

My current project is studies. :( I am in the middle of exam period, so no matter how much I want to make some cards I really shouldn't :)

Melodyscraps, mixed media goddess said...

Very cute card! I make ATCs still, and art journal. Lately I've been working on a lot of mixed media and assemblage art. I'm hoping to get on a stamp company design team. My new blog is here http://mixedmediamess.blogspot.com

Kathy said...

Love this card. I see you are using some of that beautiful lace. It makes a card so special. I've been working on family cards lately--birthday and baby. We have two new babies in the family, so lots of causes for celebration.

Pat said...

Oh, Holley, I miss VBS so much. Since getting laid off (and not in a nice way) from the church, I haven't been back to volunteer for VBS, even though I coordinated it for three years. As for crafting projects Ia m almost finished making 20 Get Well cards, using a Bugaboo image, for a card-making club I used to belong to before hubby got sick. I'm starting to make meetings again, starting with this week, getting out more, now that I have the time. I also am in the idea process for a canvas for an Arts Festival at the Veterans' Hospital. I'm allowed up to three projects, as long as they're using different media.

papersmiles said...

That is one cute and sexy hippo. Kind of reminds me of Tater on the movie cars. He's such a cutie, too. At the moment, I'm playing around with oil pastels and finding new ways to use embossing folders.

What a cute little hippo in pjs! I have been working on Valentine cards and getting my stamps and dies organized in clear envelopes this week. Making slow headway but it's a start!

Vivian Foo said...

Cindy van Oorschot said...

Just finished a mini album now onto making a few cards, then not sure thinking maybe making a mixed media canvas piece.

Lucie H said...

I love your hippo/bunny. I have one that is an owl/bunny. The main thing I am working on is not art related, but it will lead to it. I am retiring soon.

Darcy Schroeder said...

Beautiful Easter card! I bought those 4 images of Sandra's and now have to find some time to color and make some cards!!
My project right now is organizing my craft space. I finished my craft room but now I'm tackling the areas that have overflowed out of the room!

Nikki C said...

Such an adorable card Holley! I have been recently helping my friend's daughter make Valentine cards and have been trying to replenish my own stash of birthday cards. I also had to make several sympathy cards.

sammi said...

Adorable card! Cute image! Lately, I am working on making backgrounds with the alcohol inks and the few oxide ink pads I have. I just bought a gelli plate and my next big project will be to tackle leaning how to use it!
