Arrgghh Ye' Wicked? + Bonus Hippo:)

Well, we had a fantastic time at "Wicked"!! Our group was able to meet the talented performer's after the show. It was hard to believe their voices came out of those bodies. My fav was "Popular".
I'm a little pooped, but I did find some time to whip a couple of cards. On my pirate card, I used our new orange gingham paper. I sanded then antiqued it a bit. I also used my new Doodlebug chunky glitter. LOVE IT! I just had to use hippo again, i think she's sooo cute:) I can't wait to use the orange gingham for Halloween. Hey, who said that? Have a great rest of the weekend.

hippo birdie to you!!

And to me! Yep, it's my birthday today. So, i'll be fast, my daughter and I are off to see "Wicked". Wahoo!!
This card is a no brainer. You HAVE to pair the birdie and party hat with our adorable new hippo! I've got the long grass in there too. Don't forget the cute new sentiment "hippo birdie to you". And of course, the new petite green grass GINGHAM. See you tomorrow:)

we all live in .....

A Muse Bouche heaven! here's my take on our adorable sub. I'm sure i'm not the only one to think of the "Yellow Submarine" from the Beatle's. At least i hope not:) Please pardon operator issues with the picture. I really need lessons, *sigh* The new yellow gingham is much more vibrant than how it looks here. Enjoy and have a "sublime" day!!

You had me at hello!

A Muse has done it again! Our upcoming release, "Summer Fun" is a blast of fun to play with.
My heart did flip flops when i saw that we had gingham papers. It's not your mother's gingham, the colors are gorgeous and the print is so delicate. Now, don't be afraid that you'll turn country or sumpin'. You'll use it with all of our other delicious papers.
I've got to make this a quick one. SO, many A Muse bouches to plan:) Don't forget to check out the A Muse blog for fun peeks. Of course our designers and instructors blogs have fabulous peeks too.

Stamps: Palm silhouette, Warm hello, Skinny oval bl sm
Papers: Buttercup yellow 4-bar, Blue gingham, Orange crush
Twinkle stickers and Stickles distress in Antique linen (for the sand on the oval)
