Hello everyone and Happy Monday!!
Did you have a good weekend? Mine was great!! I was on call Friday and Sunday but did NOT get called in and I had Saturday off... so it was (kind of) like a THREE day weekend for me!! Yippity!!
I got a ton of landscaping done around the pool deck with the help of my wonderful son Ricky!! Tomorrow I promise to do a post showing you all the things I have been doing in and around the house these past few weeks. It will better explain why I haven't been blogging as much as usual!
But for now, let's talk Ippity!!
Lisa Arana is our Hippity Hop Hostess today and she has given us a great challenge for this week to create a one-layered card. This isn't something that I do very often, but it is something I SHOULD be doing much more often!! They are quick and easy and are perfect for guys cards, or cards for people that don't like all the frills. And if you have seen Lisa's work, like I know you have, then you can see how she has mastered this technique. She loves graphic and clean and simple cards and pulls them off wonderfully!
So hopefully you will play along with us! One lucky participant will win 10 randome Ippity stamps just for submitting your card into the SCS Gallery with the keywords Ippity and IHHC28.
To start at the beginning of today's HOP,

Here is my single layered birthday card!
To create this card I used one of the flowers from the Now and Always set and the sentiment stamps from the Fall for You sets by Ippity. To keep it true to the CAS style that this single layer card was created for, I used minimal coloring and only added some ribbon and one brad.
The coloring was done with Copics in colors to coordinate with the ribbons I used. To add some extra punch and to make the center floral medallions pop, I dry embossed around it with a scalloped circle Nestability.
Single layer cards are great to make when you need a quick card. They also are wonderful to make into gift sets or to send off to the Operation Write Home organization!! Which by the way, we were asking that today was the last day to send in your cards for the OWH challenge. So if you haven't done so already, Please do it today!! THANKS!!
Enjoy today's Hippity Hop and be sure to create your own single layered card
for a chance to WIN this week!!
