H{ippity} Ippity Hop

Hello, friends:}


Well...as promised here are two updates:


1. Singing--THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for the prayers. It was a very big day yesterday--but I have to say that the Spirit was with me. I actually think it went well (and if you know me...I am very critical and hard on myself!). I am so thankful for our band members--Jordan H., Jimmy S., Jeff C., Walt B., Tara E., Judy L., and Cameron S. (the 14 year old drummer--too cute!). We used to record the worship and sermon for the internet, but now they just record the sermon (we have three services and then one simulcast at another campus). So I will see about how to share it with you--Thank you for lifting me up!

2. Here is the pic of the card that I submitted to the Ippity contest last week for bling. I updated it with a pic of my friend Jordan and I. Seriously--she is toooooooooooooo AWESOME! She has a great heart and is very talented! She loved the card--love it when people feel special after getting one of my cards! 

So here are the rest of the cards that I created for the hop!

This first one seemed easier than I thought...I was going to tie leaves on the whole thing- and it was going to be completed for the CARDS challenge. I finished it a bit late...but I really like how it turned out. I used the tree from the Simply Home set, and the sentiments were from the Devoted and Just Wanted to Say sets. I masked off some of the words for the Bible verse. I love it! I ended up using it for the IHHC7 challenge! **NOTE:: this is actually only 2x3 inches--love working on new smaller surfaces!!!

Here is another card that I created for the IHHC7 challenge. I wanted a simple yet pretty card for an anniversary. I ended up making these flowers after following Dawn McVey's video. She is too cute too! I do think I might change a bit on this card--I will have the stamped sentiment and tag stand out a bit by using a cream paper and foam tape. I wanted it simple--but not THAT simple:}


You should really check out the other ladies work--wow! Great stuff! I will be posting more later this week--especially Friday! Jordan came over this weekend, and I helped her make several several cards for her boyfriend!!! All UNITY stamps! I love love love UNITY and IPPITY!


Also.....just in case you didn't know... I extended the giveaway to TUESDAY, JAN. 26 at 8am!! So go check it out--and the funny thing is...I have more changes!! Mention any and you are in the drawing!


Well...thanks for making it this far in the post! I wanted to share more cards with you- but time got away from me! Thanks so much for stopping by! I love our visits:}


Have a great week! Until next time~
Love, Sav
