Happy Birthday to you!

This month's theme for the Stampin' Up card club I attend was a masculine card. I used the SU set Crazy for Cupcakes and made a birthday card. At first, I added beads for the sprinkles but it started to look a little feminine so I decided to leave them off.

Ladybugs!

Here's another fairy I told you about the other day...I had fun colouring them in all different colour combinations!

I learnt recently that the Ladybug is the state insect of New Hampshire...we certainly see alot here! What some of you may not know is that in Australia we call them Ladybirds which is much prettier than their real name Coccinellidae! I smile every time I see one as they are so cute and where I was living in Australia we didn't see them very often. Here in NH they are considered a pest and a nuisance and travel in huge numbers...to me they will always be the Ladybird!

Supplies:- You're Fairy Sweet by Pink Cat Studios, PTI white cardstock, Brilliance ink, Copics, DP unknown, SU coloured, Nestabilities, rhinestones, ribbon and foam dots.

The Lord is my strength...

It's Monday but there's no Ippity Hop today...it feels a little strange as I have not missed one over the last 15 months. The Ippity blog is undergoing a few changes over the next month as they get ready for the new release of stamps in June.

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


Supplies:- You Deserve and Devoted by Ippity, PTI white cardstock. Copics, SU coloured cardstock, Brilliance ink, SU marker, SU ribbon and Foam dots.
