Hippity Hop Happy Birthday

Today the Ippity DT has hijacked the Hippity Hop
 to wish our very own Eva a Happy Birthday!!

Eva is the host of this week's Hippity Hop, but she doesn't know that we have taken it over!!  LOL!!  We are still following her challenge for today which is to use scallops on our cards, but we used scallops on our Birthday Cards that we have made in honor of her!  Head on over to the Ippity Blog to see all the details of Eva's challenge this week and also find the list of today's participants!


I consider Eva such a dear friend now and I am so thankful to have met her through Ippity.  We both had the honor of starting from the beginning of Ippity and have really built a strong bond through this connection.  Hardly a day goes by that we don't talk to each other and we are there to help each other out no matter what is going on!  You will never meet a more positive and encouraging person than Eva.  She spreads joy in everything she says and does.  She has the kind of beauty that is not only outside but just gleams from the inside too!!

Happy Birthday Eva!  
Sending lots of love to you for your special day!


The card that I made for Eva uses two Ippity stamps.  The first stamp that you can see clearly is the sentiment from the Just Wanted to Say set.  But if you look more closely you will see that I also used one of the stamps from the Regal Greetings set.  I stamped one of the single fleur de lis stamps repeatedly onto the base paper with Versamark.  Then to  make the images stand out a bit, I added a soft blue chalk to them. This gives a very subtle effect to the background paper!

Edited to Add: I forgot to mention that I used another sketch from the Master list of cards sketches on SCS for my card today!  It is sketch SC29 and can be found HERE!

Here is the picture of it...





The DP I used is from My Mind's Eye's Lush Collection.  Even the flower was created using the same DP and in fact was a make n take that I made while at CHA! I finally had the perfect reason to use it!  The base paper is from Bo Bunny and the script paper is October Afternoon.  The beautiful Kraft colored pearls and flowers are from Zva.  I needed to make a card with lots of frills for Eva because she is the queen of frills and details on cards! I hope I didn't disappoint!!


Eva's challenge for us this week is to use scallops.  The scallops on my card came in the from of a border punch by Martha Stewart which is double the scallops.  Many little scallops form larger scallops and make a beautiful border on a card.  The second way I added scallops is in the lace trim that I used.  We hope that you will play along with us for this week's challenge!!

Eva I hope you like your card!! It is in the mail to you now!!  Thanks for being my sweet friend and I hope you had a wonderful Birthday yesterday!!

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope that your bucket is overflowing with wonderful friends like I have in Eva!  Have a great day!
