H{ippity} Hop Just for Fun!

I rarely have trouble sleeping, but when I do, it SUCKS! I woke up in the middle of the night, all on my own, no kids waking me which was a blessing, BUT I couldn't go back to sleep. I tried reading, counting, our sound machine-nothing worked. So....here I am typing up my H{ippity} Hop post-might as well put my non-sleep time to good use, right???!!! So yesterday I got in some stamping time and I created a few things just for the fun of it. Boy, does that feel good. I have been working on 80 wedding invites for my sister and finally finished them last week, so to create for ME was very refreshing. I made this card using a version of last week's Mojo Monday sketch.
I used two {ippity} sets-What Matter's Most and Just Wanted to Say! You can purchase them HERE (or just email me, I'll send you an invoice).
I colored the butterflies with copics and added some stickles. Papers are Farm Fresh by Oct. Afternoon. Isn't it funny how our cards often start out totally different from where they end up? I meant for this to be a 4 1/4 square card, then cut it down and mounted it on a Spring Moss A2 card base. How often does that happen for you?
See the other {ippity} inspiration at the BLOG! The full line-up will be there. Oh, and check back, I've got a cute Springy TSG Challenge card for you too, today! Hugs, Lisa
