Happy H{ippity} Hop!

Good morning Peeps! How is everybody doing today? I don't usually play along with the h{ippity} hop challenge, but this last one was to take any sketch you could find on SCS and make an {ippity} card with that.
WHAT???
Did Eryn create this challenge just for me??

Well, I had about a basquillion things to do this week, including that midterm and a unit test - both of which I did better than I expected in - Hurray!! - and getting asked at the last minute to come help with some card making for some of the local troops. I couldn't very well turn that down, now, could I? I mean, come on. The spousal unit has been serving for almost 24 years. 'Nuff said.

So tonight, after getting the things I could do done, I thought I'd knock out a quick card before bed, since tomorrow is a big, nasty dentist appointment and I won't be in any shape to do much of anything afterward. The only way I get through a dentist appt is valium. I wish I were kidding.

I picked SC148, in part because I'd never made a card with a single layer base. It also seemed like a good candidate for a stamped background layer. I pulled out two more {ippity} sets that hadn't been inked up yet, as I'm still on my quest to use every one of my stamps. I chose Quotes A 'La Happy for the sentiment and Bitty Pixie Paisley for the background, using both the small and large paisley stamps and Versamark ink for a subtle look. The paper is from the Prismatics line, the ribbon from Taylored Expressions and the ink is Ranger Distress Ink in Fired Brick.

That's it from me today. For a full list of participating peeps, check out the {ippity} blog. Have a fantastic day!
