Get Hippity With Ippity Challenge #19

If you're looking for my Softpencil Studios post please look here!!

Today I am here to let you know about the newest challenge at Get Hippity with Ippity!! You need to create a project with the theme Rain or Showers. You can make a card, a layout, or ATC whatever you'd like just as long as it has rain or shine incorporated!! You can find all the details and rules for the challenge here. 

The prize is a set of your choice from Aletha's sales blog. Have I mentioned that she has AWESOME customer service? Also if you are ordering over at the Unity site and including {ippity} in your order please pick Aletha as your {ippity} chick. (she's in the bottom row)

We've been having quite a mixture of these rain and sunshine here in Ohio so there's been lots of natural inspiration!! Not to mention temperatures up and down, up and down!! :-)

For this challenge I chose the {ippity} set Raining Happy!! This umbrella is adorable and the sentiment is fabulous!! Of course it has to be since it was designed by Tracey Malnofski who is also the artist and owner of the The Stamping Boutique.  

Ok on with my card -

This is one of the {ippity} itty bittys.

I've been thinking about using this set for a retirement card but don't know if the person would take it the wrong way. It's not that we're happy they are retiring but that they should be happy retiring. Does that even make sense?

I hope you'll join in the fun. I look forward to seeing your beautiful creations at the GHWI Blog!!
