Hello There

It's {Ippity} Hop time! Be sure to check in at the {Ippity} Blog to see the full list of Blog Hop participants and all their wonderful {Ippity} creations...and to see what today's challenge is!

I made this card for today's blog hop using the cow from the Ippity set Simply Home and the sentiment from Sweet Thoughts of Spring because I really like how they go together! I coloured the background paper with my Copics to look like cow hide to stay with a black and white theme.

After making the card I was putting away my stamps when I realised that I have never inked up the house from the set Simply Home so I HAD to make a card so it wouldn't feel left out! :) I paper pieced the house and coloured the windows and doors with Copics.

Don't forget you can purchase {Ippity} stamp sets and paper from me HERE and you won't pay any shipping within the US!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
