I love blank cards, I think so much can be said without words, so I hope you are up for the challenge.  You can find all the deets for the Ippity Hippity Hop Twist Challenge {IHHTC4} in the Ippity forum. Still in that silly mood from Friday… the googly eyes are BACK!  Ha.  I wanted to make a kid friendly birthday card that had the look …

Happy H{ippity} Hop!!!

Hello H{ippity} Hoppers! We have a {free} week! March was a little long this month, so to keep our challenges in line we are going challenge free this week. I’ve had a few requests for some thank you, so I turned to my trusty {ippity} stamps to create this one. Gurnsey Gingham House a Home Just Wanted to Say Sweet and simple.  Makes my heart happy. I had a super weekend.  Today is my birthday and I celebrated with my family yesterday.  Luckily there were only 6 candles on the cake “3” and “3”… I’ll let you figure out how …
