Ippity Stamps for Sale

Blogger had a tough Monday

I guess we can forgive them though!! My Ippity Hop Card was done and ready to go yesterday but I couldn't get it posted. I'm so sorry to anyone who hopped by earlier. This card is headed to Unity (along with several others) to be included with the Operation Write Home card campaign that my fellow Ippity Chicks are involved in. What a great cause - check out more information here.  And to see the list of all the other Ippity Hop participants and a brand new Ippity Challenge click here.

I used Angie Blom's fabulous tutorial to make this fun flower!! PS I Love You (from the Love in Return Ippity set which I have in stock check the Ippity tab at the top of the page)  is stamped in the Unity Brown (it looks black in the picture for some reason) the background stamp from A Moment in Time (also in stock!!)  is stamped with VersaMark ink and then chalked with light brown chalk. I added a pretty border, ribbon and stitched around the card to finish this off.  I wanted to go with colors I thought a male soldier would like but with a feminine touch if he is sending it to his wife/mom/daughter, etc. Let me know what you think!  Have a great Monday :)

Your card is wonderful - love that flower! You're very creative :) OWH is a great cause! As mom of a son who was twice deployed I certainly appreciate the time you put into these cards. Hugs!
