Happy Friends with Flair Friday~


Doesn't gingham make you happy? I love this red gingham ribbon paired with one of the new releases from {ippity}: Raining Happy!  This stamp set was released yesterday...isn't it darling!

This stamp set reflects how I feel right now...my stamping has been sporadic and was put on hold a little, as I have been totally concentrating on getting a better job.  Searching, applying online (everything is online now), networking, etc...that's a job in itself, and I know my commenting on fellow crafters blogs was lacking!  
Well, guess what? I was just offered a fantastic job, and I have a huge sigh of relief...woohoo!  I start this new job soon...I am so excited! 
So, YES, you bet 'it's raining happy' in my home!  

I love these ribbons...from Really Reasonable Ribbon...look at the patchwork on the Checkerboard Satin lemon yellow ribbon.  I'm searching and getting info on a light box...a fellow crafter just got one and gave a rave review.  I need better pictures and as you can see by the Stickles that I used on the umbrella....I'm not too fond of the picture.


Here's a close-up for detail that you can't see from the first picture.  I actually stamped in Craft White Ink, our {ippity} A Bit of Burlap stamp, for the background.  I actually wanted a 'texture' of some sort and I think this looks awesome, especially when you see it in person.

I created this card from the current sketch at Chick Challenges.  
Did you know you can now not only use your {ippity} stamps for the challenges but YES you can now use your Unity stamps too!  Woohoo!
Here's the sketch...I actually flipped it for my card:

Hope your day is RAINING HAPPY too!
