[ippity} and Unity flair!

Hello ladies, Happy Friday!  Another week gone by, another weekend upon us and time for another Friends with Flair hop!  Have I mentioned that I just love our little Friday get togethers?  Such a fun way to put to rest a long work week!  First, I'll share a card that was inspired by this week's  color challenge at the Play Date Cafe:   Beige, light Blue and Mint-ish green.  I dug deep in my stash and came up with some old MME paper and accented it with the new baker's twine I just got.  The stamps, both sentiment and branch accents on the paper, are from the Totally Happy {ippity} set and the cross stitch border is from the Quotes a'la Happy set.



Next is a layout featuring my Golden Retreiver, Murphy.  Papers are from Echo Park (the little shapes reminded me of a doggie bone) and stamps are from the September kit of the month:





All {ippity} stamp sets are available for purchase right Here!  

The full listing of FWF participants can be found Here!  

Your next stop on the hop is Here!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great weekend!  Till next time...

Adore your card, the natural feel to it with the neutral colours and the ripping is very appealing.
