Ippity Stamps Blog Hop and a Give Away

Good morning  {ippity} friends and welcome to the {ippity} stamps blog hop!  I'm so glad you could join us today for some {ippity} inspiration and a preview of the five new stamp sets being released today. 

L.O.V.E is in the air with this blog hop.  Truth be told I was not creative enough to create a card using elements beginning with the letters in the word love, so I took this opportunity to create a valentine to send to my son who is away at college.

It's always a challenge to create a card for a male, let alone a valentine.  I think I found a happy medium here to create a card that sent him a little love but not be too mushy.  I began this card with this weeks card sketch at Clean and Simple Stamping and one of my favorite {ippity} stamp sets How YOU Doin'.  I love all the images in this  set as well as the variety of everyday sentiments. 

Tonight at 7:00 central time, five new itty bitty stamp sets will be released on the Unity Website.  Here are a few simple cards I made using three of the five new sets. 

Friendship is the....

 Sucks to get old

Fabulous Girl

There will also be some partying going on over at Splitcoast Stampers tonight at 7:00.  You can now shop for {ippity} at the Unity Website or visit my {ippity} blog for more details.

To celebrate this month's release, I am giving away this cute itty bitty  stamp set  i'm sweet on you.  All you have to do is leave me a comment and I will select one winner who will be announced next Friday, the 17th. on my blog.

Next up on the hop is Lisa.  Please visit her blog Schnauz Scraps and thank you so much for hopping with us today!
