Hippo birdie to me!

amuse-bouche - Day 4

Today I'm gonna have my cake...and eat it too ;) hee hee hee. It's my birthday -- and I have a treat for YOU! mmm...mmm....Good!

How can anyone resist the new Pirate Bird and Hippo stamps!! And the new sentiment "Hippo birdie to you!" is a MUST to go with. I couldn't wait to get these stamps inked up to create this little scene. ALL the new A Muse Summer Fun images are da'bomb!

Here's a closeup to show where I added some shimmer to the waves and eye patch with a Clear Spica Glitter Pen. It's always a challenge to get that on a pic. I made the flag with the Retro Rectangle stamp and then drew the flag pole by hand.

Don't forget to check out the other A Muse Creative Team blogs and the A Muse News Blog for more of today's "Pirate Fun!" amuse-bouche. One more day of sneak peeks - then on the 27th you'll get to see ALL the new Summer Fun images on-line :)
