{4.18.2011} Hippity Hoppin’

It’s Monday!!!

And we are hijackin’ this HIPPITY HOP for one fabulous, amazing, beautiful chick…


because it is HER BIRTHDAY!!!  Oh yeah, it’s HER BIRTHDAY!!!
So make sure you leave her lots of love today!

I used the inspiration photo from this week’s Ippity Hippity Hop Twist Challenge {IHHTC4} to create our birthday girl’s card.  All the deets for the challenge can be found in the Ippity forum.

I’m using the Sweet Thoughts of Spring scallops to create the banner.  The fun Hopscotch papers from Basic Grey were perfect and seemed to match the inspiration photo perfectly.  And it wouldn’t be a birthday card without the PERFECT happy birthday stamp from Party Hat Wishes.

So can you guess why I picked this inspiration photo???

It is full of so many fabulous ideas.  There are accordion flowers, banners, the colors, the springiness… oh so many inspirations.  But the real reason I picked it is for our fabulous EVA.  It is her {virtual} birthday party and that chair is her birthday throne.  I loved the large letters in the photo and wanted to be sure Eva got her initial on her card too.

Happy birthday girlie, I hope it is as special as you are!!!

Let’s keep this party hoppin’…

the fabulous Lisa H. is next!!!!

stamps: Sweet Thoughts of Spring, Party Hat Wishes {ippity by unity}
patterned paper: Hopscotch (basic grey)
die cuts & punches: real estate sign, scallop circle {ek success}
other: white gel pen {uniball}, corner chomper
