Oh the joy of a long weekend!

A long weekend, the promise of cooler weather and a Friends with Flair Blog Hop...no better way to start the weekend!  My blog has been sorely neglected for the past several weeks, but with vacation behind me I should be back on track!  I have a few cards to share today.   First off I finally inked up that fabulous manly {ippity} set, "Authentic man"  I paired it with some Bella Boulevard papers, a couple banged up brads ( I knew I bought that hammer for a reason!) A blender pen and markers colored in the car and the headlights are accented with a yellow spica pen:



Next up is a simple one layer card on craft cardstock using several {ippity} sets: "So This is Love", "Life is the Journey" and "A Moment in Time". A bit of ink was sponged on the edges to soften things up and a thick bit of knotted twine finishes it off.  



Thanks for stopping by I've missed our visits!  Have you found the secret blinkie yet?  still looking for it? Next up on the hop is Lisa! and the full list of participants can be found on the Unity blog. 

Interested in any of the {ippity} stamps you see here?  You can get them here - on my newly redesigned, (and still a work in progress) {ippity} sales site. 

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
