Hippo-Ray Dancing Bookmark

Now who doesn't think a ballerina Hippo is just the cutest thing ever? Doesn't this just make you smile?! It sure did me. The stamps over at Doodle Pantry always do that to me. This adorable dancing hippo is from a stamp set called "Hippo-Ray" it was just released this month. I made her into a corner bookmark for the Crafty Catz challenge. The color combo came from Stamptacular Sunday.
At My Time to Craft they wanted to see wildlife - I will admit it isn't the normal wildlife image that comes to mind. At Crafty Pad they wanted to see stripes. Lili of the Valley is hosting an anything goes week. Finally, over at CCEE they wanted to see a sport. I would count dancing as a sport. Thanks so much for stopping by and welcome to the weekend! =)
