Share Your Ippity Blog Hop

Hello, friends:}

Just a quick reminder-- I have a giveaway going on HERE until Friday, April 17 at midnight....double your chances!! Come on--I know you like free goodies!! I do:}
Today is a special day over on Bonnie's blog...she is hosting her first blog hop with 2 Sketches for You. How fun! And I'm a part of this AWESOME hop!! Be sure to check out Bonnie's blog for more deets!

I've been a bit busy on Mondays and haven't had a chance to fit in any of my Ippity cards:{ So I have a couple to share today--and they are CAS! Love when that happens! Quick cards!!

The first card I created was for the Loonie Stampers Challenge #87. I really liked this idea of teal, black, and white. I do wish I would have used silver gems instead of black...but I really like it. I love love love that silk/satin bow! MMMM! So big! I used Unity's Love Grows tree and the sentiment came from Ippity's Just Wanted To Say set. That is a great set for sentiments! I do have one more card for the challenge--but I have to put some finishing touches on it...I'll probably share it Monday next week!

after- still not the  greatest background...but it works!
**NOTE:: I know I know...That background looks horrible--I will see about taking another pic later today!
The second card was CAS--I stamped the bird from Ippity's Music Of My Heart set and added flowers and gems for the tail. I printed the sentiment with the computer. So simple! 
This next card was also CAS--I love the plaid background and the shape of the card. I stamped a very soft music background from the Music Of My Heart Ippity set with the sentiment from Ippity's What Matters Most. The butterflies are also from the same Ippity set. I paper pieced each butterfly and flocked two of them for demision. I love it--LOVE simple! **NOTE:: I messed up the ink on the sentiment by pushing down too hard--but I didn't want to remake the card. I make mistakes too--too many actually! Maybe I should have made another one:} **NOTE2:: I got my flocking over at Limelight! Check out their awesome deals when you are done with the hop!!

This last card was created for Trav! I also used the Hip Hop sketch. I really like that banner/tag stamp from Ippity's Love In Return set. I also used the scalloped stamp from Sweet Thoughts of Spring. The animals are from Ippity's Winter collection--Simply Home set. I flocked them as well! Super simple card!

I normally don't make CAS cards...but I think I'm really into these simple and fast projects. Note to self:: make more CAS cards!!! They are easy to make and quick!!

FAB cards Sav!!! I LOVE the first tree, it's really simple and elegant. I think the black gems are better than silver, so great choice!

That bird's tail feather is SO cute, what a clever thing to think of, and I LOVE the shape and design of your plaid card, the butterflies look great, very pretty!

You're right, the banner for Trav's card is really cute. I LOVE how you've done the border too, it's really pretty. Might have to pick that set up! ;o)
