Get Hippity With Ippity Challenge #10 Reminder

Happy Sunday!! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and weekend. I didn't head out for any Black Friday sales but I did do a bit of online shopping!! I have been so stressed and busy that I haven't done much crafty shopping so I figured it would be OK. :-)  I also know there's one more place to stop tomorrow for a Cyber Monday Sale -
I was able to get some crafting time this weekend. A friend of mine is doing a chinese auction next weekend for her daughter's band/orchestra booster group.  So I spent the whole weekend creating a couple of baskets to use. I'll be back later this week to share them. I still have one to finish between now and next Sunday so wish me luck!!

Here's another card I made for the Get Hippity with Ippity Challenge #10 - embossing.  I hope you'll come by and enter for the chance to win a set from Aletha's wonderful Ippity sales blog!!

As always thanks so much for coming by!! Hope you have a wonderful week!!
Blessings and Hugs,

Get Hippity with Ippity Challenge #10

Welcome to another Get Hippity with Ippity Challenge Post!! I don't know about you but {ippity} stamps are truly some of my favorites and Aletha is my favorite {ippity} chick!! 

The challenge this time is to use embossing on your project.  It can be heat embossing or dry embossing whatever you choose.  You can find all the details on the Get Hippity With Ippity blog

Here's my inspiration for you -
I used the snowflakes embossing folder from cuttlebug for the background. The images are all from the {ippity} set Gingham Christmas Greetings which of course Aletha has available here.

I hope you'll join the fun!!! So get on over there and share your creativity!!

Thanks as always for coming by! Blessings and Hugs!!

Hello again...

Sorry I've been absent for so long!! Our family has been going through a little rough time. It's been difficult but the Lord has blessed us in many ways through our experiences. Our situation has been neither life threatening nor life changing but just rather stressful and has caused me to be busy with life rather than crafting.

I thought we were finally done this weekend but nope it's not to be. I'm ok with that though because I just know that the Lord is watching over us and will be there to see us through. I find my favorite scriptures right now are

"Do not be anxious in anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,present your request to the God." Phil 4:6

"Be still and know that I am God." Psalm 46:10

I was able to squeeze a bit of crafting in earlier today and created the following card.

The sets are - {ippity} - Now and Always 
                      {ippity} - Friends + Flowers = Priceless

I used the sketch from the current Get Hippity With Ippity Challenge #9.

 Remember this challenge is open until this Saturday November 19th!!  You have a chance to win an {Ippity}set from Aletha's sales blog.  I sure hope you'll join the fun!

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a blessed week!!
Blessings and Hugs,
