My first H{ippity} Hop

Hey everyone

Hope you had a great weekend. Ours was quite busy, but lovely too. Saturday we did an Art Journalling course with Sarah (Anderson), which was incredibly messy but lots of fun. I've decided that I need to work on that a bit more, lots of practice required I think lol.

So, today is my very first H{ippity} hop. I thought I would join in on the fun. I'm hoping this will post properly for me as there is quite a time difference and it took me a while to figure out what it was! Fingers crossed I got it right!


 For my card I used my little bird and tree from the {ippity} 'Fall for You' set.  Oh HOW cute is he?!!!!  He looks so sweet stamped up in real life!


I usually do a search on different sketch sites at the weekends to see what sketches jump out at me, and I found this one over at the Sweet Sunday sketch blog.  The idea this week was to use the sketch but to incorporate some background stamping.  Now, this all started off very well, but my tree looked a bit flat.  In the end I decided to stamp it and cut it out instead, so it only resembles the sketch a little now!  Does that ever happen to you?!!!  Funny!  I still really enjoyed using the sketch though.  As soon as I saw it I thought it was perfect for my little bird.  What type of bird do you reckon he is?

Hope you enjoy the rest of the H{ippity} hop!   I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has made.  Don't forget, there's still time to join in with the Play Date Cafe challenge this week!  Pop on over and see what you can come up with!
