{4.25.2011} what, no sentiments?

Oh my!

For the final twist, I’m challenging you to make a card that is blank on the FRONT!  Gasp, I know… NO SENTIMENTS allowed!?!  It is ok, I promise it will be fun.

I love blank cards, I think so much can be said without words, so I hope you are up for the challenge.  You can find all the deets for the Ippity Hippity Hop Twist Challenge {IHHTC4} in the Ippity forum.

Still in that silly mood from Friday… the googly eyes are BACK!  Ha.  I wanted to make a kid friendly birthday card that had the look of a cartoon or doodle.  I used a black pen to create the hand drawn feel.

Say hello to cupcake boy!  Ha.

He goes on lots of crazy birthday adventures.  Haha.

I combined the stamps from Cuppy Cakes and Party Hat Wishes to create this little guy.  The balloons are free handed and cut out from the super cute My Mind’s Eye papers.


I’m so excited to see what Lisa’s created this week… hop on over.

stamps: cuppy cakes, party hat wishes {ippity by unity}
patterned paper: Hazel’s papers {my mind’s eye}
die cuts & punches: butterflies {martha stewart}, labels eight {spellbinders}, scallop sentiments border punch {fiskars}
other: white gel pen {uniball}, black pen {prismacolor}, googly eyes, baker’s twine {twinery}
