Today's Hippity Hop is Going Green!


Good Monday Morning and Happy Hippity Hop!!

For this week's Hippity Hop Challenge  
our wonderfully talented Lisa Henke has asked that we use 
Green and a Neutral color on our creations today!

It's the perfect color combo to celebrate the upcoming St. Patrick's Day, 
but it did have me scratching my head just a bit as I decided what to do!  LOL!

Thanks Maria for reminding me that this also fits last Tuesday's Trigger on the Moxie Fab Blog!


You can check it out here...


We hope you will play along with us this week!  We are up to Ippity HH Challenge fifteen today so use the keyword  IHHC15 when uploading to Galleries.  All the details are on the {ippity} Blog and that is where you will find the list of all of  today's fabulous blogs to visit too!  We have almost 50 wonderful blogs signed up today!!  That is just wonderful and will surely start my week off with the type of amazing inspiration that I need for a week filled with creating!!  :-)

I ended up taking advantage of a cute patterned paper from DCWV's Crafty Stack to lead me to the finished product you see here...


The paper came with the subtle outline of the flowers and stems that you see here.  All I did was cut one extra set out to place on top of the base.  I used the Dots border stamp from Love in Return  by {ippity} to make the flowers have the dotted pattern and I also outlined the extra layer with an opaque white pen.



The sentiment and frame you see here are from the Just Wanted to Say {ippity}set.  I stamped it directly onto my GP  paper using SU's Wild Wasabi green ink!



A faint line of stitching was already present on the paper, but I decided to follow that line using my machine to give the card more texture.  I finished off the piece with two cute little flower centers from Doodlebug Designs!


My {ippity} BLOG CANDY giveaway 
is still going on HERE.


And so is the Sweet Sale I am doing for sponsoring the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog last week!

Don't miss out  on either of those things and have a great time finishing the hop today!!  May your bucket be overflowing with enough coffee to get you through today's blog hop full of wonderful {ippity} creations!

Have a great day!
