Have your Cake and Eat it too!!



Happy Hippity Hop!!


I hope you stateside friends enjoyed your Thanksgiving Holiday!!  It was wonderful for me and I am sorry that we have to get back to the weekly routine!  However, since Christmas time is my favorite time of the year, I guess I can't complain that we are getting closer to that now!!

Eva is today's host for our Hippity Hop Challenge.  And she has given us a site full of inspiration to find some creative mojo from.  Her challenge is IHHC52 and she would like us to be inspired by one of the cakes at the website called Cakes for Occasions.

Boy was I getting hungry looking through this site!! LOL!


But I finally landed on THIS CAKE as my inspiration and here is what I created from that inspiration...


Ordinarily I wouldn't have chosen to put the garnet and goldish yellow colors together (mostly because I am a Florida Gator fan and not a Florida State fan,) but I have to admit this combo has a nice elegance to it!  I decide to use the "wishing you" sentiment from the So This is Love Ippity stamp set and create an anniversary or wedding card.  The inside sentiment (not shown) says "love and laughter."

Here are the three Ippity stamp sets I used to create this card...






And here is a closeup of the front...


I have to thank Eva again for this fabulous ribbon!!  She sent this satin ribbon to me as well and I love the size and feel of it!! It forms wonderful bows!!  And it was the perfect touch to finish off my card!!  Thanks Eva!!  ♥

That's all I have for you today, but be sure to start the Hop at the
where you will find the list of today's Hop participants
 and be sent around cyberspace to find some amazing Ippity inspiration!!



Enjoy your day and be sure to check out your
where you are likely to find some fabulous CyberMonday specials!!!



May your bucket overflow with Love and Laughter!
