A little bit of {ippity}

* Edited to add links, oops sorry!!

Hey there everyone!  Firstly it seems only fair to issue a warning... It's a picture heavy post today!

Today is H{ippity} Hop day. I've made a card using my favourite flower from this set, 'Now & Always'.

The papers are Basic Grey, the butterfly from my Martha Stewart hole punch, the ribbon is from Stamping Up! and the sentiment from Hero Arts.  If you'd like more information on the goodies used just drop me an e-mail.

I am a bit late in posting this but as you may know {ippity} have just released some new gorgeous goodies, and I am going to share them all with you today.  They are lovely!

This set is my favourite of the new collection.  How totally gorgeous is that sun, and those little birds are adorable!!!  What about that jar for Valentines or for an anniversary?  FAB huh?!

This set is all about home, the number of times I threaten to make a stash of new home cards but never do, now I have no excuse!  I love those little hearts too, they'd look great as a border along the bottom of a card, or even inside to finish off.

This set is great for the men in our lives, I love those little ties and isn't that car fun?  It would work as well for a teenager as it would for an older guy.  How cute is that 'Daddy & Me'?

Isn't it odd how things that we used in the past eventually translate themselves into the cardmaking world?  My Dad always used these kind of books when he was an Accountant.  They bring back fun memories of him!

Dotty should be my middle name!  I love anything with polka dots and have to restrain myself from posting it all the time in case you get bored, LOVE this one!  It would make a great background or be brilliant for making your own patterned papers.

Here's another one of those little daily things that finally made it to the card making world, the postage stamp, how cute is that?!  You could use it on the front of your envelopes if you're giving them by hand.  I love the little circles too, they would be great cut out and used on scrapbook layouts.  (must get back into scrapbooking one day!) 

Next one up is 'SO this is LOVE'.  I really love the words on this set, I don't think you can ever have enough word stamps, can you?

I just love the name of this set, 'Bitty Pixie Paisley'!  I LOVE the flowers too, I bet they look fab paper pieced!

Another yummy postal type set.  I have a bit of a thing for post card stamps, I never know what to do with them, but I have a few!  This would look pretty with a few flowers on to the left of it, it really does all of the work for you!  I'm looking forward to seeing what others make with this one, it's gorgeous! 

Don't you just love all of the sentiments {ippity} come up with, and those little branches are so sweet.  You could bling them up with some glitter.

Isn't that pumpkin label pretty with the flourishes?!!  You could use that for fall cards too, not that we have those over in the UK, but being part of the blogging world now you start to think of how other countries celebrate!  Another fun part of blogging is learning all of the cultural differences we have, and the different traditions.  Love learning all about them!    I really like the label too, you could change that to any date you wanted just by masking it out. 

And.. Last but not least this stamp is another of my favourites.  I just love all of them on this set!  YOU do deserve the best, so what are you waiting for?  Drop me an e-mail and order up some goodies for yourself.   If I don't have the set in stock I can always order it for you. I'd love you to be able to play with these too!
