Happy H{ippity} Hop Monday to ya!!

So, after losing my mojo this weekend - a lot of things going on that just totally snatched it for me, I was IM'ing with my good DT friend Patricia at about 10:30p and realized I needed a card for today! LOL So, I started scouring the blogs for challenges because that helps my mojo & when I came across the Color Throwdown Challenge this week, they had my absolute FAV color (purple) in their set this week so I finally had an idea where to start. Then I remembered being SO inspired by Savannah's adorable little circle shaped cards - she is phenominal by the way!
So I looked thru my {ippity} sets from the fabulous Spring release that hadn't seen love yet and decided I would ink up this adorable & thrifty $6 set Faith Blooms. Instead of doing a circle card, I decided to do a little note card with my Nestie Labels 1. I used the largest die to cut out the card & then the same to attached the purple CS over the top to camoflage the fold. This set totally caught my eye & I hope you like what I've done with it. I love inking on dark cardstock with white so I stamped off my flower image on that & then couldn't wait to ink up the cork I bought from M's this weekend and just LOVE how it turned out!


Speaking of thrifty sets - with the NEW Summer {ippity} Release, we now have NINE sets $10 & under! Isn't that awesome?! And a lot of them are stamps SETS not just single stamps. Pretty awesome. I love {ippity}! I have them available for purchase on my {ippity} Sales Blog!


Be sure to check out the Unity Opportunity Blog for a list of EVERYONE participating today! This sure does make Monday's great in my opinion!
