Hippo Holidays!

This image gives me the giggles! I am participating in Bugaboo's Catch the Bug Challenge 4th Annual Christmas in July Blog Hop. Phew! That's a mouthful! lol It's a week long challenge and I'm not sure I've got the stamina for it! lol I've got all my images colored and the blog hop looks like fun that is for sure but a daily card??? I have trouble remembering to take my chemo drug daily... sometimes even eating... :\ I'm working with a fried brain. If you've read my blog before I'm sure you've read me writing so... well... I! Mean! It! :( Anyway, I'm gonna give it my best shot! Am I repeating myself? Maybe! ;) lol 
Here's my Sunday project for the Christmas in July: Week-long Challenges/Inspiration and it includes a sketch:
Here's a close up of the image:
Here's the sketch:
I'm also entering this into these Christmas-themed challenges:
I am a follower of these blogs. The blog layout I use does not allow me to list challenges on a sidebar. Instead, I display badges and / or links here
This is how I put my card together:
Image: Hippo Candy Cane from Bugaboo
(By the way, they are having a 50% off sale through 
the end of July! Having another one of those moments
when I am wishing I'd been born rich instead
of beautiful!)
Image colored with Copic markers
Card stock and rhinestones from my stash
Liquid Applique sprinkled with Crystal Snow on the "fur"
Fiskars border punch
Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Circles SM
Handwritten sentiment
Glossy Accents on the candy cane
I'm off to get this uploaded to the challenge. I have good intentions! lol 
Let's see how far I get with this! Wish me luck!
Thanks for stopping by!
