Hello, Hello!

...and a happy Monday to you! I woke up this morning determined to start off the week with a smile on my face and a jump in my step - I'm hoping it will carry over to the rest of the week :) Countdown to my daughter's wedding continues: T minus 13 days and counting. Still not sure what I'm wearing, but hoping it all gets ironed out this week! (or else I'm in trouble, LOL) Anyways, you're probably here for the h{ippity} hop, so let's get down to it. My first card showcases the Now and Always set, using the inside of one of the flowers with some paper piecing and the scroll stamp. The sentiment is from The Simple Things set. Paper is from My Mind's Eye and the card is finished off with a bit of glossy accents in the center of the flowers and a bit of silk ribbon.




The next card showcases the Season of Joy, A bit of Burlap and Regal Greetings sets. The paper is from the EverAfter line by Cosmo Cricket. I'm pretty sure the Bit of Burlap is going to become a staple on my craft table. I might as well just keep it mounted on it's own block and keep it out, considering how often i reach for it!


Thanks so much for stopping by, your visits go a long way in keeping my smile bright! Take a moment and stop by my Stamp{ippity} site and be sure to click on the sets to get a more detailed view of these fabulous stamps!

Full hop participant listing can be found on the {ippity} blog. Your next stop on the hop is Andrea's Blog!
