H{ippity} Hop Monday!

Happy H{ippity} Hop Monday!!! I had a wonderful weekend full of stamping and cardmaking and bbq's and waterparks! It was just FUN! My girls actually spent the weekend with my mom so I had a LOT of time to make cards and I took plenty of advantage of that by making 8 cards! Yowsa! That's a lot. I have one of those cards to share with you today and the other 7 are staying a secret until after Fri as I submited them to PaperCrafts!!! Yikes! I finally did it! I've been thinking about it for awhile but this time I finally did it and even if none of my cards make it into the issue I'm just so proud of myself for taking the initial step to submit. Besides, with a craft show fastly approaching - I'll need lots of cards on hand - and I'll keep on submitting, too!!!

So, on to my card. I used this weeks Unity Addicts color challenge to use Teal, Orange & Navy. Isn't it divine?! I love this sentiment from the {ippity} set Delightful Little Things. Reminds me to remember that I know who matters to me even when sometimes other people in my life may still hurt me. A little personal here, but I'm sure we all have those people in our lives at some point. I'm at the point where I need to do my best to move on and enjoy the life I have with my amazing husband, my beautiful children, a great job that allows me to stay home and a wonderful hobby that fulfills me to no end with beautiful friends & creativity!!! Ok, I'll stop now! LOL

My 2nd set of cards I made for last weeks hip hop sketch & were actually showcased on the Unity Opportunity Blog last Wednesday!!! Totally made my day! I couldn't believe it - I just love working with my {ippity} & Unity stamps. Not only are they great quality and fabulously cute stamps, but the company itself is amazing with its sense of commUNITY. I honestly have never felt so welcomed as a customer, as a friend, as a designer. It's absolutely superb! And I hope I can pass that sense of sisterhood on to you as my customers for {ippity} as well. Everytime I have a sale from my blog, I literally do a little happy dance, I'll email or text my friends to share in my excitement. I eagerly get together the stamps and write up a personal note to send along with your order. I just love passing along my love of stamping & what it brings to my life.

I hope you are having a great Monday! And be sure to stop by the Unity Opportunity Blog to get a list of all the amazing artists participating in todays hop!

The sets used on my cards today are Delightful Little Things; Season of Joy; Moon Beams & Heart Strings. Please stop by my {ippity} Sales blog to see my wonderful sale going on now! I'm getting extremely excited for the NEW Summer 2010 release and need to sell my current inventory in order for my hubby to agree to me buying the new sets so I'm passing along some great savings to my customers! FREE Shipping & 10% off when you buy 3 or more sets!
Oh and there have been so many positive things happening surrounding my love of stamping that I am putting together a special blog candy so stay tuned!!! You won't want to miss it as it will be featuring a lot of my favorite things to use!
