Ippity Hop

Good Morning I hope that everyone had a fabulous and safe weekend!!! We did alot of picnics so the kids are exhausted and today we are doing a day trip which should be fun. This week Kelly Is having us make a card for Operation Write Home I think this is such a great idea I always am looking for ways to get rid of some cards and this is sooo perfect. I guess my challenge for this is trying to make my card as flat as possible I am pretty proud that I did not use one dimensional sticker on this. I used Simply Said , Bit Of Burlap and Elegant Greetings for the sentiment along with some Fancy Pants DP. I based my card on last weeks Hip Hop Sketch it is always such a great way to start a card and get the mojo going.
Make sure to check out the other Fabulous ladies over at The Ippity Blog and to find out how you can participate in Operation Write Home.
Enjoy Your day!!!

I got a new Martha Stewart punch this past weekend and I just love it boy I am loving the punches they just add so much to card. Oh and I did paper piece this ice cream cone so I hope that you are not getting tired of me doing the same technique over and over again.
