10 things...

Happy H{ippity} Hop Monday to you and welcome to the world of {ippity}!  I took Eryn's IHHC18 challenge and made a tri-fold card for the first time.  I knew I wanted to use Kiwi Kiss as my base c/s and as I was browsing through my {ippity} sets, I spied my 'Love in Return' set.  I love that you could use this set for any kind of project, and all of a sudden I thought "it's about time to give my son some kind words"!  At school today, his AIMS testing starts and I'm putting this card in his backpack as a little surprise and (hopefully) a boost of confidence to put a smile on his face.

I used two {ippity} stamp sets and matched them up with papers from My Minds Eye (these owls are toooo cute) and SU (I so love Kiwi Kiss!).  I also have Kiwi Kiss Corduroy buttons, so I had to use them with a little circle flower that I made to cup the button.

I inserted a photo of him and also one of him with his favorite little cousin blowing bubbles (his cousin just adores him).  I know that photo will bring a smile to his face.
