Ahh...the Weekend is here!!!!

Happy Saturday!! I am so grateful to have a restful day!! Kendra was sick all week and it was quite an emotional week at school. My heart hurts for so many of my students and the situations they must live in.

As you know, I get all my wonderful {Ippity} goodies from Aletha.  BTW - you want to be watching our Get Hippity with Ippity blog next week - new challenge and new release!! It is going to be awesome. I am really excited for my friend Tracey Malnofski (Unity Artista and owner/artist of The Stamping Boutique) because the entire {Ippity} release is her images!!

Anyhow, on to some Happy Birthday cards made with some {Ippity} goodness. 

For this first one I used the Sweet on You set. (this one also happens to be drawn by Tracey)

I made this card for one of the teachers at school. This image was perfect because he wears a tie almost every day and most of the men teachers wear polos and such.  

The set I used was "The Man"
Remember you can find these and so many more wonderful sets on Aletha's sales blog.

I'd like to enter the following challenges -
Eat, Sleep, Stamp - sketch for the top card (cupcakes birthday card)
Aud Sentiments - must have Happy Birthday sentiment
Divas by Design - spots or stripes

Thanks for stopping by!! Hope you are having a peaceful and restful weekend!!

Blessings and Hugs!!
