March 1st H{ippity} Hop!

Happy Monday! Happy March 1st! Wow another month down! These next few months are going to be chaos around here! I don't even want to think about it! Ugh!

Anyway on to what you came for, some {ippity} inspiration! My first card uses the same sketch I used the other day for FWF. This paper is part of {ippity}'s Winter paper pack. I love those owls! The {ippity} set used is What Matters Most. I messed up on the placement of the butterfly but still like the way it looks. You just can't read the whole quote unless you move the wings! Oh well.

This next card uses a scrap piece I save from one of my Studio Calico Kits. I needed a masculine birthday card for my brother and needed it quick! This took me less than 10 minutes to make! The Happy Birthday stamp is from {ippity}'s Life's Little Moments.

Well that's all I've got for you today! Please check out all the other H{ippity} Hop blogs!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Don't forget you can get your {ippity} from me! Have a wonderful day!
