A Male Hippo

Hi Everyone, another Hippo post today, our friend has just had his hip replaced, it seems the NHS couldn't do it in the time frame stipulated, so he had to travel 35 miles to a Private hospital to get it done by the NHS. He had it done with a epidural as he has a bad chest. He was in and out in 3 days. I decided to use the same sentiment by Create with TLC as it suits this card so well. It's a simple one layer, he doesn't "do" cards!

I paper pieced the hippo and laid it on a distressed background, then added a wobbly eyes, Glad to say he liked it..

Love the hippo, Faith, and that inside sentiment is fabulous! I'm facing a hip replacement myself, but am not yet convinced it HAS to be done. My attitude is, "If I can still move, I don't need surgery." :-D
