H{ippity} Hop Monday!

It's our last h{ippity} hop before our BIG release next Monday!!!! I know you are all anxious and excited. SO are WE!!!! We can't wait to start the sneak peeks-beginning on Thursday. Hold onto your hats, we've started a fabulous week!
It is kind of a strange week here in the Henke household. Today is my birthday AND my littlest guy's birthday. Isn't that just the best present ever???? Three years ago today, I turned 32 and was blessed with my 3rd child. In 4 more days we'll be celebrating my middle guy's birthday. I can't believe he is going to be 6!!!! And on a sad note, in the middle of all the birthday fun, tomorrow we will be celebrating the life of our dearly loved Grandma. Tim's grandma, Vinnie, peacefully passed away on Friday morning. She was 92 and we knew it was coming, but it is still very sad and we will miss her greatly. Thanks to all who have already lifted us up in prayer.
Okay, back to the FUN! I've really enjoyed checking out all the birthday cards from last week's challenge. I'll be picking a winner sometime today. Be sure to stop by the {ippity} forum to see who the lucky winner is.
AND For today, let's enjoy a little love. The challenge this week is to create a Valentine's Day card. Play along for another great prize. Be sure to upload to SCS gallery with the keywords: ippity and IHHC10. My card is CAS and comes from last week's CAS challenge. It was a sketch challenge inspired by our own Kelly's card. I used the great, all-0occasion set, Because of You with some Nook & Pantry dp-looks good on chocolate cs, doesn't it. I also inked up part of the sentiment. Love that with these stamps-makes them more versatile. I actually had to mask off part of the words I didn't want with torn pieces of a post it. Inked up the words I did want with Vintage Cream ink and then took the mask off before I stamped. Works like a charm. Be sure to stop by the{ippity} blog for the list of participants of this week's hop! AND if you need any {ippity} stamps, SHOP HERE or shoot me an email!

Hugs, Lisa

    I am still trying to play catch up with FWFF and Monday's ippity hops...and I love this chocolate card with the hearts! The colors really pop, and did you realize from your FWFF card to Mondays' that you are using lots of chocolate c/s?...THEY ARE ALL FABULOUS! It just goes to show you that chocolate goes with everything...of course, I'm also talking about some sweet chocolate cocoa, chocolate candy, chocolate cupcakes....ooops sorry...LUV YOUR STUFF! *smile*
