Celebrating my Birthday with Ippity!!!

It's time for Hippity Hop!!

And it's also my Birthday!!! 

Today I am celebrating my 47th birthday!  And I am so thankful to say that it is a good day and I expect an even better year ahead of me!!  The past year was full of many changes in my life, but in retrospect they have all been good ones that I am thankful to have experienced all of them!! 

I have the most wonderful and loving family who came over yesterday to celebrate with me and their love and support has gotten me through so much!! I am truly blessed.  I love my job and have the most amazing co-workers and friends at both the hospitals I work at.  And I can't fail to mention my fabulous friends who make every day so special in one way or another!! 

This is the beautiful arrangement my mom made for me!!

Thank you so much to all of you Ippity Chicks, fans and DT members!! You guys are like family and friends all in one!!  I was so blessed yesterday by the outpouring of love from the DT when they all gave me a bouquet of handmade flowers!!  They are so talented and so giving.... it made me cry tears of joy!!  I love you guys so much!!!

I am hostessing today's Hippity Hop and in honor of it being my Birthday, I am challenging you this week to create a BIRTHDAY CARD!!

Here is the one that I created for today.  I am also following the Unity Addicts Challenge UAC23 from Wednesday which was to create a monochromatic card with a pop of one other color.  I used these great oranges from some Kaiser Craft paper and layered the flowers that I cut directly from the DP.

The Ippity stamp set that I used is called Just Wanted to Say

For IHHC47 please create a BIRTHDAY CARD
Upload it to SCS Ippity Forum using the keywords
Ippity, Unity and IHHC47

Next Monday, one lucky participant will receive
Delightful Little Things as their prize!!

Good luck!!

Have a great day!! And thanks for stopping by!!!
