{4.4.2011} hippity hoppin’

It’s Monday!!!

And time to start a new
Ippity Hippity Hop Twist Challenge {IHHTC4}.
We are starting a new round of challenges for April and
first up we have this sketch.

I’m the lucky one to bring you this month of challenges, so I hope you will enjoy them.  🙂  All the deets for the challenge can be found on the Ippity blog or in the Ippity forum.

This is a very common sketch for me and have used this simple design over and over again.  It can be dressed up or down in so many ways, so let your imagination run wild!!!

I’m using the Bitty Pixie Paisley stamp set.  I embossed the cute little paisleys with clear embossing powder.  I just wanted a slight simple background.  The many thanks sentiment fit perfectly on this label die cut.

The fabulous Lisa H. is next!!!!


stamps: Bitty Pixie Paisley {ippity}
patterned paper and die cut: cottage collection {crate paper}
other: deco scissors {Provocraft}, clear embossing powder, ribbon {offray}

    Gorgeous card! Love the paisley touch. I came to gloat that I’d finally made my 100 cards and to check how you were doing….but I can’t find your counter. Does that mean you finished too?! (and does it also mean that you, like me, have decided NEVER to repeat such a ridiculous challenge….?!) x

      Lol… you should gloat! Ha! I had to end at 91 on March 31st. I really needed new paper! 🙂 I am so excited you finished! WOO HOO!

    Lovely Lisa..love the new photo!!
    The background you’ve created is beautiful and I love the way you tied your ribbon up on top with the dangling sentiment…very cool!!

  15. Maria Gurnsey

    Such a great sketch and an even BETTER card. I can’t seem to create anything I love with the paisley but I LOVE this 🙂

Your comments really make my day, thank you!
