This is so cute Holley! Love that doctor Hippo and this would be a great image for a get well card! No special occasions coming up except for my birthday in May, but every day is a celebration to me!

This is so cute Holley, I have 3 birthdays next Sunday, daughter-in-law, second eldest grandson, and daughter of a niece

So cute is DR Hippo, I love the added embellishments. At the end of the month we were hoping to celebrate my mums 90th birthday but as you know she is quite poorly in hospital but fingers crossed she can see her birthday. Hugs Jennifer xx

Wow, this is a cute card and those embellishments look awesome with it! I am always celebrating birthdays in our house and my 10th anniversary is coming up in April, so that's pretty exciting.

Cute card! Love the stamp, and the scrubs are the perfect touch. This could be a great get well card. I have to do several birthdays this month and lots of birthdays and anniversaries in June. That seems to be my busiest month for cards ( besides December).

Jean said...

A cute card! Yesterday was my mom's 90th birthday, tomorrow is my twin sister's and my birthday and in two weeks is another sister's birthday. February is a busy month for us!

That hippo is cute. He's perfect for a get well card.

A friend has just celebrated her 80th birthday and we are taking her away next week-end for her birthday treat. Also my eldest son starts a new job in management in the NHS on 19/2/18 so he deserved a special card making from that. Other than those no special ones for the remainder of the year.

Take care, Kym xxx

Oh so cute. I love hippos and elephants. My big upcoming event is a wedding. I’m looking for ideas for wedding invitations.

papersmiles said...

Great color combo and that thermometer is pretty nifty. At my age I am always looking for "sympathy" words and images to go with. Seems I am losing a friend, neighbor or relative way too regularly. Hugs and Happy Saturday. Barbara

jeanchaneyaz said...

Loving your hippo, Holley. These hippos are great images and they were all fun to color.
Not much too exciting around here, but I'm looking forward to some crafting events coming up soon.

Omg...he is so cute!

I have our 9th anniversary coming up in March. This is big for me. My daughter just started calling my husband dad. Also, this is officially the longest relationship I've ever been in.

Darcy Schroeder said...

Really cute card with that cute doctor hippo! I don't have any special events coming up, just Valentine's Day, I guess! I'm mailing out Valentine cards to my grandkids with Valentine images from Sandra Caldwell.

barbara macaskill said...

Love this totally adorable hippo doctor! If hubby hadn’t walked out on me a month and a half ago our 28th Anniversary would be March 31st. Son and grandson have birthdays on March 13th and 16th also.

Adorable card Holley!! That doctor hippo is so cute. My boyfriends birthday is coming up, and a few others in the next few months. Nothing really other than that.

This summer my baby, my son, is getting married. Last of my three children to say “I do”! Also daughter number two and her husband will be celebrating 1 year of marriage this summer.

Candy Meyers said...

Cute hippo. Great get well card. Our next big occasion is our 49th wedding anniversary. Hard to believe it’s been that long.

Very sweet card! I think our special events are over for a while. Since Thanksgiving, we've had a wedding and two new babies so we are ready for some calm.

sammi said...

Oh my goodness, Holley, this card is fabulous! This is my favorite, so far, from this week long celebration! I'm a nurse so this image especially tickles my fancy! I have a birthday coming up as well as an anniversary.

My special occasion coming up is my 40th Wedding Anniversary on April 1st.  Yes, April Fool's Day, which was the only Saturday that was available for us.  That is a date that is hard to miss!
