Happy Hippo FM157

April 29, 2014

We were supposed to have bad weather all day, but it only rained a little bit.  My heart aches for all the victims of the tornadoes in Mississippi and Alabama.  I am very thankful that we didn't have the weather that was predicted.  

When I saw The Friday Mashup Challenge this week, I knew I had to play along!  Polka Dots are one of my favorites and a fun fold card made it even more exciting!  I have mentioned this so many times, but if you know me well, you know I LOVE hippos, too!  Hope you enjoy my card!

                                                  Each Hippo has a different look!
