One Week to Go!!

Oh I am getting soooo excited because in only one week I am leaving to Chicago for CHA!!  Woohoo!!

I can't wait to reunite with many of my stamp buddies and all the Unity and Ippity peeps that will be going!  It is always so inspiring and tons of fun and a real treat to see the new merchandise coming out.  But by far, my favorite part of it is bonding and building friendships with other people who share my passion of stamping with me!

I first met Eryn at last CHA in January and I can't wait to see her again.  She has the biggest sweetest smile and is such a doll!!  I'll see you really soon Eryn!!  I can't wait!!  

Eryn is our hostess for today's Ippity Hippity Hop!  She has issued a new challenge to us which is to use her favorite color combo on our project today.  This is IHHC33 and she has asked us to use

Turquoise
Yellow 
and any Accent Color
I have chosen Cream for mine!

Using some awesome October Afternoon papers from the Thrift Shop and Fly a Kite lines, I have created the card you see here...



I stamped the word "happy" from the A Little Buggy Ippity stamp set three times using two shades of turquoise ink from SU.  Then I also stamped the sentiment "birthday wishes" which is in the Just Wanted to Say collection onto a small tag and attached it to one of the flowers as if it were dangling from it!



To make the accents, I cut around the circles and stacked them on each other and lined them up to form a border and then placed some small Prima roses in the center of each of them!  I can see why these are Eryn's favorite colors to play with... they are fun to work with and definitely made me feel happy while working with them!

To start the Hippity Hop at the beginning please visit the Ippity Blog for the full list of today's participants and be sure to read all the details of Eryn's challenge.  We sure hope you will play along with us!!

If you need some Ippity stamps of your own, you can check out my sales blog HERE or you can find an Ippity Chick near you by visiting the Ippity Chick Locator page HERE!!

Enjoy the rest of your Monday... I am ready for a good week of spending time with my daughter Leah who is home for almost a month visiting with us until her Vet program starts in August!!  We have a lot of crafting planned for this week!!  :-)


Have  a great Hippity Hop and may your bucket overflow with the same warmth that the colors Turquoise and Yellow evoke!
