Hippity Hop!!

Happy Monday?  Today we go back to work after a wonderful 5-day vacation....well, actually, I go to the dentist first thing and then on to work:-(

Here is the card I made today - it didn't turn out quite as I expected but I kind of like it anyway. It is for my sister-in-law's birthday - she collects chickens and roosters and like the country vibe.  I used the new sets "Gurnsey Gingham," "Farm Fresh," and "Party Hat Wishes."  I tried to get the hat on the rooster but it wasn't quite right for the card.  SO, this is what we have:-) This is a card from a Recollections set of cards and envies I got at Michael's - this red matches the "Fired Brick" distress ink perfectly!

Remember to leave some love and visit all the other "chicks" today!

Ippity Hippity Hop Monday!!

Happy Monday Everyone!! I, for one, am looking forward to tomorrow afternoon and five days off in a row!!!  Yippeee....

I went to Michael's this morning to buy some Mod Podge - of course, I found a few other goodies but them my eyes alit on these sets of 3" by 3" cards and envelopes by Recollections.  Each box has 30 cards and envelopes and they are $1.99 per box.  Such a deal, I couldn't pass it up.

Here are samples of all the card designs in the box...

One set has six patterns in red and green and the other has six patterns in the light blue family.

Can you see why they are a stamper's dream?  There is space to add your own images and sentiments with a minimum of time.

See what I came up with so far?  Those Ippity Christmas kits have just the right images and sentiments for these cute little cards.  These will make fabulous gift enclosures for Christmas....

Happy Turkey Day, Everyone!!  And, remember, Ippity stamps are the perfect gift for anyone...

Saturday - A Change of Pace

Just so you know, although most of my stamps may be from Unity, I do own stamps from other companies too!!

Here is a Christmas card I made using Verve stamps.  This is from the "Ornamental Christmas" set.  Verve sells beautiful clear stamps that make the most beautiful, clear impressions.  Look at the detail in this ornament!  It is so elegant and lovely....

This is part of a large group of cards I'll be mailing to my mother this week along with some Christmas stamps so she can get started on her Christmas card list....

Have a great Saturday!

Friends with Flair on Friday!!!

Happy Friday - we loved the Ippity release and the Webster's Pages release yesterday was the icing on the cake!!

To change the subject:-)  here are a couple of Christmas cards I made this week...of course, I loved the mittens from October's Kit of the Month - how cute are they with the paper from the Cosmo Cricket "Mitten Weather" minideck?  How could I resist buying paper that is named for me....the "Noel" is a Sizzix die that makes these cards oh so easy.  I used a grey ink snowflake on the second card and I really like the way it turned out.  The cards are from Making Memories - I believe I got them from my friend Pat at Paper Maniac.

So, you really should try out this stamp - it is adorable and remember that nothing is better than a Mitten!!

Have fun along the hop and look for the blinkie so you can have a shot at winning some red rubbah today!!

And, of course, get your Ippity here - I haven't got the new sets posted here yet but you can always email me if you want to make a purchase.

Monday Hippity Hop!!!

Can you feel the excitement!!??  The new release is almost here!  But, that doesn't mean the old releases have lost any of their appeal....

I started making some Christmas cards this weekend - I plan to send them to my mother next week so she'll have some handmade ones to start her Christmas card list off....this photo didn't come out very well - the label stamp is from "Season of Joy"- I used every single Ippity snowflake on the background - subtly stamped in light grey and I put glossy accents on the holly.  I made the whole thing red to make it stand out against that cute plaid Mitten Weather paper.  Didn't you know that Unity and Cosmo named their stamps and paper after me???LOL

The card is from Making Memories and I got it from Paper Maniac, one of my favorite online stores:-)

So, remember to get your Ippity here and have a great week!  I can't wait to see what the gals make with the rest of the new release!

Anyway, see you later and have a great week...
