Way too long!

The last time I blogged I was running away to California to find some warm weather and today it looks the warm weather found me here in Jersey.  I've been too long away and am super happy to join the {ippity} hop again!  Today I have a couple things to share with you; first, an envelope book made with the LYB Twig line.  I used the Bird stamp from the "Sing a New Song" set, and used different bird images from assorted sets on the pages.


Next is a card I created for the color challenge at the Play Date Cafe:  pink, red and light blue.   I used Pink Paislee paper and my favorite {ippity} sentiment, which can be found in the "So This Is Love" set.  I finished it off with some baker's twine, a strip of pink cotton fabric, a button and some machine stitching.  Although you can't tell in the picture, the red scalloped border is made with microfine glitter.  



All {ippity} stamp sets are available for purchase right HERE! 
The full listing of  hop participants can be found HERE!

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a wonderful week!  Till next time...

You're from Jersey? I'm from Jersey! (remember Joe Piscopo saying that on Saturday Night LIve?) No, really, I'm from Jersey. Haddon Township, about 10 minutes from PHilly.

So...I am lovin' both of your creations, and I see that you and I have the same great taste in patterned paper (I used that same Pink Paislee piece on my card this week!). ;) Thanks so much for sharing it with us at The Play Date Cafe! (PS - just 'followed' you)

What a small world, I'm from Jersey too! About a mile from the ocean in South Jersey. I was all about the weather today! Can't get warm too soon for me at all!
I love both of your cards, the top one is so wonderfully intricate and earthy and the second card is so fabulously elegant! Thanks for playing along with us at the Play Date Cafe!
(Oh, and I'm following you too!)
I know both NoraAnne and Colleen~ the sweetest gals you ever want to meet...probably because they're from Jersey...lol!

Donna said...

Welcome back girlfriend! We've been wondering where you were. Glad to see the creativity flowing. I even watched some of the Sabres games thinking of you. Not too much, but enough to make me change the channel in case my watching jinxed them. Guess it wasn't me!

Cheryl said...
