H{ippity} Hop Monday!

I decided to step out of my little card box and get inky with canvas this week! Oh my gosh, ever since I saw THIS tutorial on the Ippity Blog I just KNEW I would have to give this a try. It took me awhile to find my courage, but oh my, believe me, this is just the start! I can't wait to do this again. I used 3 different sets: Music of My heart (for the music background), Life's Little Moments (for the sentiment), & Fall for You (for the little flower accents). I also used distress inks & then embellished it with some gorgeous blue lace, ribbon, pearls & flower. I love it! I have so many ideas for more to make as gifts. I think I've found my handmade Christmas item for this year.
Be sure to head over to the Ippity Blog for a list of everyone participating today!
