Forgiven and Happy Birthday

Welcome to my stop on the {Ippity} Blog Hop! Don't forget to visit the {Ippity} Blog for 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, the winner of the {Ippity} set from Saturday's OWH Bunny Hop is...
Carol from Scrappin' Heaven
Thanks to everyone who left a comment.

My first card today uses last week's sketch and stamps from the set What Matters Most.

My second card is for Party Time Tuesdays challenge....swing card + masculine birthday card! I've not made one of these before but after watching the tutorial by Lisa Tedder HERE I found it very easy! It certainly wasn't the easiest card to photograph but hopefully you get the idea! It really is a clever little design the way the centre swings around when you open the card!

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!

  1. Beautiful cards. The papers in the first one are gorgeous and I love the monochromatic of the second one. Just lovely.

  2. Great swing card and I love how you kept it monochromatic too. Thanks for joining the Party and we hope you'll be back again soon!


  3. Wonderful card! I love the old car and how you colored it. The stars are a great accent for a guy card. My swing card for this contest was my first attempt too. You're right...they are a challenge to photograph. They're so unique to give though. You don't usually see something like this from Hallmark! Thanks so much for joining us at Party Time Tuesdays! Hope to see you again soon.
