Ippity Hoppin' on this Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone! Ippity chicks and fans (like me) have created Ippity goodness just for you today.... you heard me, right? Just for YOU to come see and enjoy and be inspired by.... *smile*

Of course, I want you to linger here, but be sure you catch it all by starting your tour at the Ippity blog. Leave a love-ly comment wherever you go because you could be the random commenter selected to win some Ippity rubber. How cool is that for a Valentine's treat?

I love stretching out of the box (pun intended) so this week I used a tutorial to make this birthday card for a dear friend. The best part is that, while it can stand on its own, it folds flat for mailing... cool, huh? Check the sidebar on my friend Emma's blog and click on "box arm card" for step-by-step directions. Isn't she just so nice to provide them? I'm sure she'd appreciate a little love note if you visit...

The first photo doesn't show how the pieces are connected so I'm also including a bird's eye view (pun intended, again)....



Supplies:
Ippity stamps: bird (Sing a New Song), frame (Love in Return), sentiments/stamp/letter (how YOU doin')
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Copic markers
Paper: DP (Forest Friends by Colorbok), Kraft/Very Vanilla (SU)

Thanks for visiting.... here are some hugs.....   ((((hugs))))
And I hope you get some chocolate today... *smile*

This is so cool, Cindy! It's the first time I've seen anything like this. I love the papers and colours you used, and of course the Ippity stamps. Happy Valentine's Day to you! Off to check out Emma's blog.
