The weeks seem to go by faster and faster lately!  It's already Monday again, and that means it is time for another featured bundle of the week.

This week I'm sharing cards made with two Sale-A-Bration items, Hippest Hippos and the coordinating Hippos Dies.

The stamps and the dies are each available for FREE with a $50 merchandise order -- so if you want them both, you need to place a $100 order.  

My little Hippo's name is Henry, and today he decided he wanted to go for a boat ride, but his lake looks pretty rough for that little boat, so I hope Henry knows what he is doing.

The waves were made with the border die from Scallop Contours dies.  They were made from Shimmery White Paper, and Blending Brushes were used to add some Balmy Blue color.  

The sky in the background was also made with Blending Brushes on Shimmery White.  The sky was blended with Balmy Blue, Petal Pink and So Saffron.  My dad always said, "A pink sky in the morning, Sailors take warning".  So, I'm thinking Henry should maybe make a short day of it.  Those waves look like there could be trouble.  But Henry says he isn't worried about getting wet.  

He likes the water and is a good swimmer, and he has his favorite striped bathing suit on.  So, he is ready!  Besides, he's also got his life ring ready, just in case.

Henry is more worried about getting sunburned, so he's got his umbrella ready!

Since the sentiment on the front just says, "Hey there", the sentiment on the inside could be almost anything.  As a result, I left it blank and can always add a sentiment later when I know what the card will be used for.  The waves on the inside of the card are much calmer.  They were made with one of the Hippo Dies and several die cuts from Balmy Blue cardstock.

This die set has so many cute dies -- 19 to be exact.  The dies are what really provide a lot of versatility to the Hippest Hippos.

I hope you will come back on Wednesday and Friday to see what Henry is up to during the rest of the week.

A list of the products I used is shown below, and you can learn more details on any of them by clicking on the specific item you are interested in.

We are now in the last half of Sale-A-Bration.  Time is flying.  As a quick reminder, Sale-A-Bration items are only available while they last.  If an item runs out, it is not restocked, so don't wait too long and be disappointed because your favorite item is gone.  These little Hippest Hippos are extremely popular, so if you like them, I would not wait too long or they might be gone.
