Do you ever get a mental block about a stamp? I get a mental block about coloring the fish on this stamp. I avoid using it for ages, because of that. Then once I force myself to use it I end up liking the way I color the fish better than than the way I color the rest of the image. (Rolling my eyes at my own foolishness.) I colored/painted this with my watercolor pencils and a few gel pens. The stamp is from Inkadinkado and I've had it for ages. The rest is card stock from my scrap stash.

You may be wondering what a dead hippo has to do with my card. The answer is, "Not much, except that the odor of a dead hippo under my home does tend to affect my creativity in a negative manner.". We live in an old, wooden home that is built on stilts and from time to time an animal dies under our home and the odor is very unpleasant. A few weeks ago a hippo died under the bathroom floor. How do we know it was a hippo? Hubby figured it out, because it's taking longer for it's odor to clear away than any other animal we've had die under there in our 30 years in this home. Makes perfect sense to me! I just hope that it was a skinny hippo, so that we get some relief soon. ;)
- I had some delicious, fresh grapes for a treat today.
- A coupon to get 30 pictures developed for free!!! I'm going to have a lot of scrap booking to do with all these pictures I'm getting developed lately. :)
- Life's simple joys - an exceptionally funny day with the dogs, relaxed time to chat with hubby and daughter, seeing a squirrel do some amazing acrobatics on a tree limb.
