It's Monday and I am looking forward to a wonderful week?
I hope you are too!!
To get things started off in that great direction,
let's celebrate with a little
Today there are lots of bloggers and the Ippity DT ready to participate in our weekly Hop.
Just start at the Ippity blog for the complete list of blogs and hop along with us!
Stephanie Muzzulin, a dear and sweet friend of mine (who I CAN"T WAIT to meet someday) was the Ippity Guest Designer for our last release and she is currently the Unity Guest Designer for August and September. Well, tomorrow is her birthday and the Ippity DT wanted to do a little something special for her! So the DT has dedicated the cards that we made today to Stephanie in honor of her birthday!! When you are done with the Hop, you can head over the Unity blog where you can see Stephanie's post for today and leave her some birthday wishes in the comments section!
Here is the card I made for her. ( It is going to go postal today Steph!)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEPHANIE!!!
Maria is our hostess for today and she has challenged us to use the colors RED, GREEN, and YELLOW on our cards. It is Ippity Hippity Hop Challenge IHHC41. We hope that you will play along with us this week as one lucky challenge participant will win a free stamp set. If you play along be sure to upload your card to the SCS Gallery and use the keywords, Ippity, Unity and IHHC41.
For my card today I used the following Ippity sets...
The designer papers I used are from Cosmo Cricket and I paper pieced the butterflies from Now and Always after stamping three of them on both the yellow floral paper and the green paper. I also added a rhinestone to the head of the body on the butterfly!
The sentiment stamp from Just Wanted to Say stamped perfectly onto the pre-made journaling block from Cosmo Cricket. At first I wasn't sure I would like working with these colors, but when all was said and done I was quite happy with my finished product. Now I just hope that Stephanie is! LOL!!
Many of the other Ippity Chicks have a special blog post honoring Michelle Ogdahl, our Ippity Manager who will be leaving us for a new venture soon. So enjoy the hop and be ready for some wonderful Ippity Inspiration along the way!
