Always Bring Your Own Sunshine

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

First of all, I want to say I BIG thank you to all of you who visit my blog. Today I will reach 20,000 hits which truly amazes me. When I started my blog back at the end of January I mainly started it so I could share my cards with my family and friends who live so far away in Australia. Little did I know I would be sharing my cards with people all over the world....your comments and words of encouragement have truly been a blessing...thank you!

Now on to today's post....I think Quotes a'la Happy from the latest Ippity release is one of my favourite Ippity sets. I love making cards with encouraging quotes and there are several in this set that will certainly brighten someone's day...and I'm sure I've mentioned it before but I do love those birds!

I have two cards to share with you today that have been made with stamps from this set. The first one has the gorgeous birds...I stamped them twice as I wanted them to go right across my card.

This next card has another quote from Quotes a'la Happy and the heart stamp from the set House a Home.

Don't forget you can purchase all the {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 great day!
