Happy Hippo New Year

Some of you will be seeing pink elephants but I tend to be different.  I'll be seeing pink hippos.  Ever since I was a little girl  when I saw Walt Disney's Fantasia I have had a thing for happy hippos so I had to have this image from Shirley's 2 Girls.  It comes with Christmas sentiments but I'm using it as a New Year's card, okay, you got me, it's a belated Christmas card, like you didn't forget somebody.  But I digress...
It's Twisted Thursday, and this week the twist is "New Year" so I'm seeing pink hippos bringing in the New Year.  
If you'd like to snag a hippo for yourself you can click here to shop.  Once you've figured out what stamp to use, get that card put together and post it on the S2G blog, you could win a digi.  Need more inspiration, well you can see the rest of the DT's projects on the S2G blog too. 

So get inky this week, make a New Year's card and join the challenge.

Here's the deets:
stamp - S2G digi Hippo
ink - HP printer
paper - Georgia Pacific white cs for the image; Warsau green cs for mats and card base; My Mind's Eye Wonderful Winter pad dp;
miscellaneous - charm from;  My Favorite Things hot fix crystals and ribbon; stickles; divine twine from the Car's Pajamas; Stampin' Up corner punch
