Hippity Hop into Fall!

Hippity Hop and Happy Labor Day!!

And can someone please tell these pregnant women around here that Labor Day has NOTHING to do with having babies??  LOL!!  I have been on all weekend and it hasn't been too bad, but I really hope to make it through today without having any more deliveries to attend!!

So today, you know the drill!!  We are first visiting the blogs of the Ippity DT members (the list is on the Ippity blog) and then we will send you back to the Ippity blog again for the complete list of Hippity Hop participants' blogs to visit.

Angie is our hostess for today's challenge and she would like our projects to use a Fall theme!  So here is what I made for today's challenge.  It's IHHC40.


I started with the base of Kraft paper that I crinkled up and inked the wrinkles and edges with Jumbo Java ink from Versamagic.  Then I added a strip of fall colored paper by K& Co.


I stamped three leaves from the Fall For You stamp set 
and added some Copics for depth and shading.


Here is a closeup of the leaves and sentiment!


The frame is from the Love in Return set and the sentiment is also from Fall For You.  I added a rafia ribbon and bow that was completed with a Recollections fabric brad that coordinated with my projects colors to finish the project off!  Unfortunately this is as close as I will get to see any leaves with changing colors.  In Florida it is still in the 80's and 90's everyday and we really don't get to see the leaves change color too well!!  

I hope you enjoy the Hop today!!  Have a great rest of the holiday  and enjoy your day!!

 Be sure to stop by the Ippity Blog later today 
where I will be announcing the winner of last week's 
Hippity Hop Back to School Challenge!!

Thanks for stopping by!!
