Happy Monday....

Hello, friends:}


It was great to get away this weekend....Paul Baloche and Jared Anderson were AMAZING...but it was nice to get back to my own bed and start crafting again!! I missed the H{ippity} Hop 2 weeks in a row!! YIKES--hopefully, I can get back on track this week!


So I created this card for three challenges: Pals Paper Arts challenge #31, ABC Design theme: birthdays and the Ippity challenge. For the PPA31, I was inspired by the birds, cages, and colors from this picture. I instantly thought of this sketch/design for my card. I was unsure of what sentiment I wanted to use...but then I asked Trav if it was a boy or girl card...and he said BOY! So I made it into a bday card for Kevin's dad, Harry! I love love love it! I used lots of different stamps--I used Unity's sentiment stamps from 100% Happy and Our Stories sets. I also used the music notes from Music From My Heart (new Ippity!!!). Then I used the scalloped stamps from Thoughts of Spring (another new Ippity set). I love this card--so cute. I also used some packing tape from Michael's--it's that green section on the card. And isn't that DP with the cages GORGEOUS! I love it! It is from the Mariposa Stack, DCWV. love it!
I hope you had a great day--I can't wait to share who won the Comfy Cozy Unity set tonight--stay tuned....the winner will be announced when I get back from dinner!!!   ETA: I did not find out who won yet because I might have a couple of winners...I haven't decided what to add to the bucket...but I think one winner will get the UNITY set...and the second winner will get a couple of goodies:} MORE TOMORROW morning- PROMISE:}


Thanks for stopping by!! Missed our visits:} Until next time~
Love, Sav
