Ahhhh...Happy Monday Morning

What a fabulous weekend. My boys were off school on Friday, my parents were in town, and the FALL weather has finally arrived. We had good eats, good friends, GREAT soccer, fun times and I got some new boots and my first pair of skinny jeans! I decdied that I just needed the right shoes to make the skinny jeans work, so I bought BOTH-HA! Let's just say, I looked HOT on Saturday for our date night, lol! No crafty time, but the break was much needed and my space is clean. I'm ready to get krafty today and am glad I worked ahead last week.....that means I have a little something for you on this H{ippity} hop Monday!
Our challenge this week is to use METAL on your creation. Here's how to play:

1. Simply "ADD METAL" to your {ippity} project.
2. Upload your project to your SCS gallery by
midnight on Sunday, October 3rd, 2010 with keyword: IHHC43
3. I will randomly choose a winner next Monday, October 4th
and I will post who the lucky winner is in a thread in the {ippity} forum

I used last weeks Unity Hip Hop sketch for my layout and some gorgeous new paper by Crate Paper. I am in loooove! The Restoration pack is stunning! I inked up those sweet houses from House a Home in Crumb Cake (I hate that SU changed the name of Kraft, don't know why but it really bugs me and I cringe everytime I have to type it up!) Then did the sentiment right overtop. My 7Gypsies key was the whole inspiration for this card. I can't wait to send it off to a dear friend of mine once she finally moves into her new home.
Need some {ippity} I'd be soooo happy to send out what I have to you! Email me with your order!
Check out the {ippity} blog for this weeks inspiration. Have a great Monday!



  1. Fabulous Lisa, love how you used the sketch and that charm is well, charming! Love it.

    lisa a.

  2. I refuse to call it anything other than Kraft. But I'm stubborn that way. Love the little key charm and your take on the Hop Hop sketch!

  3. This is so cute. Love how you used this sketch and the metal key is just perfect. Great stamp set too.

  4. Lisa, how fabulous is your take on the sketch and the little key is just perfect for the new challenge!

  5. great card, love the dp strips!

  6. I hate that SU name change too! So silly!
    But the card is great - I love that set but I've had a hard time figuring out how to use it. I appreciate the inspiration!

  7. New boots and skinny jeans... I bet you were hot for your date night!! Where are the pictures?? I love your card!! Great job on the sketch and that key is precious dangling off the bow!

  8. ooh, i love that key charm!!! and love how you layered the stamps on the KRAFT paper! hehe

  9. I was mindlessly flipping through my google reader when all of a sudden I went WOW!!!! Whose is this!!! I take a peek and it's you...hehe. Totally forgot it was Monday...sheesh!!
    Needless to say I LOVE this :)

  10. love this scrappy card, lisa, and the key is perfect!

  11. I agree with Kelly.. I want to see the skinny jeans and boots that are the perfect compliment..:) Enjoy those skinny days because they don't last for long. Your card is adorable.. I love the way you used this sketch..

  12. Love those fabulous strips of patterns! You have perfected this style! I laughed about your Crumb Cake comment because when the name was first announced but not changed yet I easily switched and typed Crumb Cake with no problem... however, lately I've been typing kraft by accident and going back to change it! Silly!


Thanks so much for your kind and supportive words. I appreciate each of you taking the time to leave some love. Have a great day!
