Halloween {ippity)

Isn't it a colorful {ippity} Monday? Well, at least you can say that my card is!

I was just 'playin' with my Copic markers with some Halloween cards and remembered the {ippity} rainbow challenge a few weeks ago and another challenge to use string.  Yea, I know your thinking that is NOT string! I know, I know, but I 'meant' to put string and after I photographed my card, I realized the challenge called for STRING and not this black 'stuff', oh well... 

I used four {ippity} stamp sets, and really love how the 'trick or treat' sentiment (from That's Creepy set), fits right into the 'circle frame' (from Life is the Journey set).  I popped up the sentiment and two of the houses with pop dots and though you can't see the Spica Pens, there is a touch of shine here and there.  And wow, that pumpkin sure looks's as big as the house door...heehee:

bee-lieve me...

yup, 'bee-lieve' me...when I say that I have missed these fun hops lately!  Life has gotten in the way of my fun, and I have been so exhausted in the evenings...well, I won't bore you with my life, so let's get on with my card that I was able to relax and make.

I have been inspired by all the Unity fans who have been using some older sets (the kind we have to dust off) and have not been inked up lately. I'm so tired, that I can't even think of who they were, so please know that I 'thank everyone' for the inspiration!
This is for the Unity Addicts challenge UAC15, which is black and white with a pop of I chose yellow to be my color and played with my Unity-Everyday Adorable set:

Thank you so much for buzzing by, and enjoy the bee-utiful inspiration from everyone on this hop!

p.s.  did you notice...somehow along with the way of trying to update my blog, I have lost my 'signature' that automatically appears at the end of each post...hmmm...I'll have to look for it later. {yawning}

Good morning to all!

I embossed the fence and bird along with the frame using my SU Classy Copper embossing powder. I cut out the frame and popped up my sentiment on top. Used my Glorious Green for the foilage along the

Thank you so much for dropping in today!  I have been searching for a job and I have to tell you it's a tough market out there.  However, I just landed a part time job for a financial institution working from home...this will help me until I get used to my son's new 'high school' schedule..OMG he's in high school now...and high school starts today on Monday!!! 

I will at least be working full time for 2 1/2 weeks just for the training starting next week, but hope to find a  f/t position soon.  At least it's something for now!  This is why I kinda haven't been around too much and I totally missed the {ippity} release party due to interviews and fingerprints and drug tests and stuff!  So sad that I missed the party, but I was there in spirit! *smile*

~Enjoy your day!~

{ippity} Christmas Cards

It's {ippity} Monday and everyone is showing their creations today!  If you want to see LOTS of {ippity} today, then you should start at the beginning of the hop HERE.

So it's already the beginning of August...that means it's just 4+ months till...Christmas! Our {ippity} Eva (design team) had an {ippity} Christmas Card Challenge over at SCS, so I made these cards for her challenge, IHHC35. Now even though I didn't get them posted onto SCS, these challenges really help me get things done!

Here are my little 3x3 cards that I made to put on gifts, using {ippity} Season of Joy and {ippity} Kissmas & Mistletoe. If you NEED these on my {ippity} link on my sidebar to find out how you can purchase them from me!

Black and White Story

Happy H{ippity} Monday to you all! If you didn't start at the beginning of the hop, make sure to go to the {ippity} blog to find the list of everyone participating today!

I made some twill bookmarks recently and wanted to try the Corner Bookmark tutorial from Beate over at SCS. In case you're interested, click on this "CORNER BOOKMARK" and you will find the tutorial for this one.

Here's a close-up:
From Unity and {ippity} Projects

I used A BIT OF BURLAP for the background; LOVE IN RETURN for the 'The End' sentiment; SIMPLY HOME for the 'live, love, laugh' sentiment; JUST WANTED TO SAY for the frame; and LIFE'S LITTLE MOMENTS for the 'Here's the Story' title...and isn't it great that you could mix and match all of these {ippity} sets!

I have at least one of each of these in my inventory today, if you NEED one of these sets! *wink*

I made it black and white to go with the current Really Reason Ribbon challenge #5 >> to use black and white, and ribbon, of course!  I love this black and white grosgrain ribbon from RRR too!

See how this bookmark fits perfectly on the corner of my book? In case, you're wondering, I love all things about WWII, so this book happens to be Tom Brokaw's 'An Album of Memories' (love these stories!):

Not sure if you can tell, but I embossed all the white on this bookmark so it could stand out. Also the bottom edge is Tim Holtz Alterations 'On the Edge' die, and used bling from Heidi Swapp.

Enjoy your {ippity} travels today, and THANK YOU for coming by!
