H{ippity} Hop Monday!

Good Morning! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and those of us in the US just might be enjoying a 3 day weekend. I know my hubby is & I love it when he's off. Our girls love it, too. I'm especially excited today b/c at 11a I will be FINALLY going to see ECLIPSE with a couple girlfriends. Seriously.Can't.Wait. We splurged with our tickets this time & are going to a new theater with balcony seating and big comfy seats. hehe, I'm excited for the ultimate movie experience!

Anyhoo, LOL, enough about my movie obsession....you all came to see a card - well, I made this card for the Unity Addict Challenge (in the Unity Forums at SCS) "Let's Get Sentimental" easy to do with the fabulous Delightful Little Things set from ippity which IS available immediately from my ippity sales blog! I love this set - and I love showcasing the sentiments/word art. As much as I LOVE coloring an image, I have to admit, sometimes to reset or recharge aftering doing a lot of coloring like I have been doing lately, I like to make some cards with little to no copic coloring, like this one:

Isn't it purty?! I just love that blinged up lace & of course those flowers again! I'm telling you, I LOVE them. I stamped the sentiment on Kraft CS with PTI snow white ink, then colored with Copics just a tiny little bit to bring the words out. I also (loosely) followed last weeks Hip Hop Sketch 14!

thanks for stopping by & have fun on the rest of the hop!

I love the making of non-colored stamps too. It's a great opportunity to refresh and challenge yourself in new ways. I love this card and the sentiment.
