Good Friday Morning!!!

I have spent the past few days cleaning and organizing my classroom for the upcoming school year and am finally done!! I still have to decorate and plan but at least phase one is done. I am really looking forward to this school year. One of my favorite parts of teaching is that each year is a fresh start and is always different!!!

I have to get Kendra ready for Girls Scout camp today and Nat wants a play date as well!! I'm hoping I can still find some time to bet a bit crafty!!!

Well, on with the crafty!!!

For the first card,  I used Ippity - The Simple Things set

I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday Challenge! I love this sketch and am sure I'll use it again and again!!

Here's a picture of the whole set --

 I used the Unity Kit of the Month March 2011 set --

One thing I love the most about Ippity/Unity stamps are that for some reason they make me try new color palettes - softer ones. I tend to create in bright colors so much but for some reason these images always bring me back to pastels and such!!

Don't forget to work on your Get Hippity with Ippity color combo Challenge entry for your chance to win an Ippity set of your choice.  Here's the inspiration piece --

And here's the challenge details -- Please note that TLL (The Latte Lounge) is going through some incredibly awesome changes and has been renamed The Crafter's Cafe!!!
The rules…
•You DO NOT have to use an {ippity} or Unity stamp, but if you do, you are entered in the drawing twice. (We use the “random generator thingy.”) DO let us know what stamp set you used in your project.
•You need to stay with the current theme. You can create any project you like, card, ATC, tags, layouts, mixed–media, altered art, etc.
•You can enter just once.
•You need to post here in the discussion area at GHWI and in your TLL gallery.
•When posting to your gallery on TLL use the keyword/tag IPPITY#4. If you post other places on the web, please use GHWI#4.
•You will also need to HAVE FUN! That’s what we are here for.

If you follow all these guidelines, your prize is an {ippity} stamp set of your choice! 

And just in case you don't win, Aletha will be more than happy to get you any Ippity Set you'd like to order from her sales blog!!

Hope you've enjoyed my sharing this week!! Have a wonderful weekend!!
Blessings and Hugs,
