More from yesterday...

Hello, friends:}

I know several of you have already seen these cards...but I wanted to share with the blogging community what I did yesterday!!

I don't know how many of you know about UNITY or IPPITY...but the company and the PEOPLE are AMAZING! Such encouragers....and inspirational people! I was on the Splitcoast Stampers forum yesterday for the IPPITY Release Party--total BLAST! I love love love my Ippity peeps {insert heart with the function key that my MAC does not have!!}. 

So on the forum yesterday there were challenges. I entered all three of them--here is what I made::

This first card was for Challenge #1 by Maria G. We were to create a card inspired by this picture. I instantly thought of three DPs that I have with purple. I learned a little secret about Maria--she doesn't like purple...never really thought about it, but I guess I don't use it much on my cards either! Doesn't mean I don't like the color--I just prefer green and brown and blue and now yellow (new fav color!). Anyway....I ended up winning the challenge and soon an IPPITY MUG will be in the mail for me!! HOOORAY:} Thanks ladies!
My second card was for Heather R.'s challenge: use fabric, tulle, or canvas on your card. I went with a plain muslin piece of fabric that I painted with acrylic paint. I wanted something simple- since I really didn't have a lot of time to create! I also wanted to use this family stamp because I hardly ever use it--so I combined all these elements and made a "special family" card for Trav **NOTE:: I did not give him his vday card on Sunday! I forgot! So....I had to make one extra special the day after:} 
The third card was for an exclusive challenge- IPPITY Chicks ONLY! Eva challenged us to use the Ippity stamps for the backgrounds. I knew I had to make a bday card for my sister-in-law...and her fav color is purple (there is the color again!)...and this is what I created. I love these flowers- I have a feeling I will be using them more often!
All in all, IPPITY ROCKS, and I had a blast yesterday! Thank you so much to all the IPPITY Chicks and Peeps! I am so blessed to call you friends:}

Hope you are doing well- more to come later! Thanks again for stopping by!
Until next time~
Love, Sav
