{ippity} Hop

     Good morning !  I hope you have all been enjoying todays hop.  Today's card was inspired by the movie Avatar.   My son loved this movie and bought the Blu-ray version of it.  He asked me to watch it with him and I was amazed at the stunning graphics in the Blu-ray version.  I loved the mystical and magical feel of this movie.  The scene that inspired this card was the scene in which hundreds of jelly fish like creatures or flowers ( I'm not sure what they were) fell from the sky to cover Jake, the main character in the film.

 

So I pulled out my favorite butterfly punches and came up with this card.  The sentiment is from Just Wanted to Say  (available here ) and the background stamp is Mixed Messages from Unity.  This is one of my favorite stamps. 

     If you ever have the opportunity to watch this movie in Blu-ray, watch it.  I caught a glimpse of the DVD version and it just wasn't the same, but I digress.

     Mark your calendars for Thursday, May 13th when the release of the new spring stamps will be unveiled.  I personally think this is the best collection to date and I am so excited to share the new stamp kits with you.  I'll have more information and some sneak peeks in the weeks ahead.
