So I HAVE a card today but it's NOT for this week's
I have an excuse: We spent the weekend stripping the old cabinets in preparation for paint and the new countertop which is scheduled a week from today...YIKES!
Here is this weeks {ippity} challenge's a GREAT final twist and I'm bummed I didn't get to it.
I've been submitting...submitting and resubmitting today's card for publication because I have to say it's probably my favorite EVER...but since no one wants it...I'll FINALLY share it here.
Isn't it HAPPY...I LOVE IT!!!
I used the {ippity} stamp sets:
I thought this card was appropriate to pair with one of my latest shopping finds...check these out
They were 50% off at Hobby Lobby and practically a steal! I promised myself I wouldn't hoard them but I've had them for almost a month and still haven't used one...soon...very soon ;)
Now head on over to Stephanie's blog were I'm sure she knocked this challenge out of the park.
Next Blog
