H{ippity} Hop Monday!

Good morning....hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  I am ready for a busy week and I have a few creations to finish today.  I should have done them over the weekend, but somehow it just flew away from me...watched too many I Dream of Jeannie episodes..LOL

Today I am the one who is responsible for this week's {ippity} challenge.  I really love all the scallop stamps in the Sweet Thoughts of Springs, and thought they would make perfect roof top on a cute house.  Thankfully I have downloaded a Silhouette bird house cutting file, so just had to cut and decorate and here is what I came up with!


And the other side..


I really love the way it turned out, I was right, the scallops made a perfect roof top and the sentiment is what describes my life right now, so I just had to use it.  I colored my flower and bird with Copic markers and inked them up with my Ranger Distress inks, which toned the bright colors down a little bit. If you like what you see, you are at luck, as I will have a tutorial on how make this, and you can find it on the Ippity blog.

Details of the project:

Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific
Patterned Paper:  Pink Paislee
Ink:  Memento, Ranger Distress ink, Powderpuff ink
Copic markers
Cutting file:  Silhouette


Well, that is it for today and I hope you have a fabulous week coming up!  Have an inspirational hop!

Hugs,
Eva
