Hippity Hop - Simply Home

My young niece wants to raise money for her local animal shelter and asked if I would make some cards for her to sell.  How could I refuse?!!  She did ask that the cards have animals on them so I had to fall back on the wonderful Ippity set, Simply Home. (By the way, I have one more set of this available for sale - just go over to the sidebar to get it.)  Here it is in all its fabulousness!!



I admit that I have not used this set to its full potential until today:-)  I love the barn and tree and the animals and sentiments - in short, what's not to love?

Here are a couple of different styles of cards I made today.


This uses dp from the incredible DSW Rustic stack - I found it at Joann's after Christmas and used my Christmas giftcard to purchase it - it is amazing and has the richest looking papers.  I used some Target raffia ribbon to put around it and make it a bit more rustic.  Below is another example using the same papers...






This card is a bit more girly - I know someone will love it.  Besides, whoever buys these cards will be putting 100% of their money to a good cause, the Animal Shelter in Milton, Mass.  My niece is a true animal lover, in fact I think she's the animal whisperer because all animals are drawn to her sweet, gentle disposition.

At the moment, this is all I've got to show for the day...perhaps I'll be more productive when the Super Bowl is on:-)

Happy Monday, everyone!  Remember to leave some love for all the bloghoppers today!  If you missed the beginning of the hop, just click here.
