H{ippity} Hop Blog Hop 1/4/2010

Hello again everyone, Happy Monday- It's time for another H{ippity} Hop Blog Hop!!! This week I used the Becky Fleck sketch featured on Caardvarks for my inspiration. The minute I saw the sketch I thought of the cute mushrooms in the "Because of you" kit. I used to collect mushroom stuff when I was a little girl, and I also had quite an extensive stamp (the lick and stick kind) collection, so I've been excited to use these adorable stamps! The Cosmo Cricket Earth Love paper was perfect for this card. I embossed the mushrooms and sentiment with Adirondack powders in Moss (my all time favorite embossing powder ever!) and espresso, then inked and detailed with a white signo pen. I used an EK success border punch for the strips and then stitched with waxed linen thread. I added a bit of bling by adhering a thin strip of redline tape to the bottom of the card and covering it with loose glitter. Thanks so much for stopping by, I love having visitors and your comments just make my day! If you just happened on this post, then please stop by the Ippity Blog for the links to all the blogs participating this week!
