you brighten my world~

Hello Unity and {ippity} fans! 
It's always a fun day to be inspired by all of our Friends with Flair this Friday, filled with
  Unity and {ippity} creations! 
Don't forget to visit the Unity blog for a fantastic list of friends who will inspire you in the most creative ways..click on the Unity name and it will take you right over there!

I'm still loving my {ippity} Loads of Love stamp set!
The folded laundry with the iron...love this!
Oh, I actually made the sentiment on Word for this card.

I wanted to join in on the Color Throwdown Challenge and wasn't sure if I could make the colors work, as they are not normally colors I would go to.  Don't you just love a good challenge?

Here is the color swatch from Color Throwdown:
Click on the butterflies to take you to the challenge.
Let's see what you can do with these colors (or like colors)...join in, it  closes on 8/14.

 Here's my little bit of brightness that I colored with my Copics.
This is called the 'spotlight technique' when you only color part of the image.
Stamps: {ippity} Loads of Love (I have 1 left in my stock! *wink*)
Laundry List:  Spellbinders Labels Three; SU Basic Gray, Old Olive, So Saffron, Yoyo Yellow; 
Imaginisce i-rock too and bling; Copic Markers; SU lace punch (retired); 
green seam binding from LSS, and yellow dingle balls (?)


And to continue on with Morissa's challenge of 
'using up your own stash...no shopping'...
I used goodies that I have had in my stash...yippee!

P.S. 
don't forget...

If YOU NEED any {ippity},
I'd be proud to be YOUR {ippity} chick!
The rest of my {ippity} stamps and inks are on my
Jen's Cup of {ippity} 
page!
If you have any questions about {ippity}, please let me know at

Side note...
EVERY order from me gets a goodie bag (could have some random stamps in there!)
 as a 'THANK YOU' for making a purchase from me.
