Hippity Hop!!!!

Happy Monday!!!  It's been a while since I've had a chance to participate in the Hop and I have missed you all!!!  I spent all day yesterday crafting and getting products ready for a show.....not a craft show but a home-based business expo at the Waterview Church of Christ in Richardson, TX on October 16 from 9 to 2.  I hope some of you local gals will visit me!  I will have all of the Ippity kits I have in stock as well as a few of the new release. And, of course, I'll be happy to take orders for the sets I run out of:-)

I also had to make a card for a new arrival - a baby boy who was born this week.  Here's the card - not cutesy since Mom likes darker colors like olive and brown:-) I love this Cosmo Cricket paper - I think I got it with a Unity Scrapbook kit.  The card does show both sides of the double-sided paper....  I am addicted to Cosmo Cricket's papers - I bought a few different decks from Limelight and Paper Maniac recently.  I love doing business with both of them - both have superior customer service...


I have wanted to try making some of these fabulous embellishments I keep seeing on the Ippity blog - here's my take on some of these fabulous "Now and Always" flowers.  I had some epoxy buttons that had just the right colors.  It is amazing how many items you can make from one piece of scrap paper!  I am bagging them up for my show - I doubt I'd be able to sell them but I want everyone to see some creative ways to use our fabulous Ippity stamps!

Well, I hope to see some of you soon!  In the meantime, I'll be busy at the great State Fair of Texas ffrom 9/24 through 10/17 - you know it's my favorite time of the year!  We've got our season passes and we're ready to roll.  I'll be working out there a couple of days at the membership table in the Continental DAR House so maybe I'll see you there!
