Ippity, ATU35 and a winner!

I'm going to keep you in suspense until the end of this post (but I can't control your scrolling down! *smile*)

I brought out my Ippity stamps to join in their Linky party today. After you leave here, check out their site HERE for more Ippity inspiration. I figured that I'd go ahead and use ribbon, too, so that I could enter it into the week-long All Things Unity challenge #35, which you will find HERE. Just so much fun going on today.

I used three Ippity sets on my little birdy card: birds (Quotes a la Happy), flowers (how YOU doin') and sentiment (Party Hat Wishes). I stamped the smallest flower of the set 10 times, colored and fussy cut them before I glued them to a sheet of patterned paper with all those pretty stems. Stamped and colored my absolute favorite birds and fussy cut them, too. Die cut the sentiment with my favorite Spellbinders Nestabilities Label #10 (which you can find HERE and if you join this site, you get a 40% off coupon monthly by email.)

I wanted unique party hats so I snipped them free hand out of text paper but I'm most thrilled with finding the word "happy" by accident. I just love serendipity.

Added the ribbon, ribbon slide, sparkly pom-poms and crystals to finish it off.

Hope you like it!

Now for the winner.... chose JEN, hooray! Jen, send me an email (you can find it in my profile) with your snail mail addy and the Mix and Match book from Friday is yours, or should I say, your daughter's? *smile*

Tomorrow is What's on Tap Tuesday. If you feel so inclined, come back to see what's going on on my desk and link in yours. So much fun to share.... Til then!
