H{ippity} Hop...and May giveaway!

***May Giveaway deets at the BOTTOM!


Hello, friends:}

So glad to be back in the swing of things...I'm in the H{ippity} Hop again today! HOOORAY! I've used my Ippity stamps on two projects this weekend.

This first card I created for my student, Nick. He is the sweetest! He had a band concert, and I wanted to let him know that I was proud of him! And that I support music--so I used my Ippity music stamp from Music of My Heart for the background. I couldn't help but pair that with Unity's Oct. and Feb. KOTM stamps--Love this card! It is only 2 inches by 3 inches! Super cute:) Just like Nick!
This next project is an ongoing calendar. The story:: When I was growing up and it was time to decorate the Christmas tree [I know--Christmas? Already?]...my mom and dad would invite my granny/gramps down for the "yearly ornaments". We would put different ornaments on that had specific years on them (you know--from Hallmark), but as we did that Mom would read from a book all the happenings of that year {deaths, births, houses that were bought or sold, graduations, etc.--anything that happened in the family}. Fast-forward--Trav and I have been keeping track of things that have happened since we started dating (in May 2005), but the notes were in a silly little book. So I decided to make calendars for each year so I could quickly write down what happened that month and put it back. I love it! I love this tradition...and I love my books! This is my first one (I'll show the rest probably later this week...or next Monday). This calendar is for 2010. So I will be up-to-date (instead of in a regular old notebook). I love the feathers and gems--the perfect stamp for this was from Ippity's Life's Little Moments set. LOVE it! 
 
I have a favor to ask....if you have 60 seconds to spare...hop on over to THIS site and vote for my friend, Laura. She has written a book, and a little British girl narrates it (SUPER cute!). Every time you watch the video...that counts as a vote! Thanks for the help! 

Well...it's that time again--MAY GIVEAWAY! We are super duper close to 100 followers! If you haven't already followed--go ahead and click on FOLLOW on the sidebar. If you are a follower--thank you so much! So I will have a giveaway when we hit 100...and like 113...or 137....so there are lots of possibilities for giveaways by following! I will also be holding a May giveaway. This will be for an Ippity set that hasn't even been released! HOOOORAY! Rules for giveaway:: just leave comments on ANY post during the month of May! I always try to post everyday [or at least 6 out of 7 days]....so that would give you 31 chances!

And to sweeten the deal today--leave a comment about my stuff today...then hop over to Laura's book video [60 second video]...and leave a comment for her on my blog! {This post only!} That means you could leave 2 comments today! HOOORAY:) Double your chances--so leave two comments! 

Thanks again for stopping by! Love sharing with you--love Ippity and Unity! Be blessed:}
Love, Sav
