Ippity and Hip Hop!

Can I get a Hip Hop? Love Thursdays.....love to see ippity and unity all in one place! I've had fun creating this week and I used a great sketch by Maria to make my first card today.


I actually ended up simplifying the sketch a bit, but the basic layout is still there. Used the awesome new ippity set, Fall For You to make this sweet love birdie card that I will be sending to my sister and her fiance'. Their wedding is fast approaching and I thought it would be nice to send them a card, just because.


I even did up the inside since there were more words in this set that would work with my card, plus it's a nice added bonus to the recipient of a card to see it all done up on the inside, too! Paper is more deee-lish Fly a Kite by Oct. Afternoon. Swooooon!!!! I also have another quickie, CAS card I made earlier this week for the CAS challenge-make a clean and simple shabby chic card. This time I used my fave flower from Now & Always along with the sentiment from A Moment in Time. The flower is pieced up with Thrift Shop dp, crumpled and sponged with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain distress ink! You can order your {ippity} HERE!
Okay, so off you go. Maria is up next! Remember to leave comments along the way for a chance at a prize! Oh, and did you see who was joining us today???? THE super talented and HUGE {ippity} supporter, Jen Marie! She won last week's lace H{ippity} Hop challenge, so she get's to be a part of our hop today as an extra Guest Designer! Be sure to leave her some extra love, too! We are so happy to have her join us today.
