time to hippity hop...

anyone else wonder where the weekend went? it flew by in the blink of an eye, i swear!! it was so nice outside all weekend, even though i didn't spend much of my time outside! oh well. i think summer is finally here! so now it's monday. and that means it's time for the h{ippity} hop! i bought some cute fabric paper from the dear lizzy+american crafts line a while ago and have been wanting to play with it. i just never had an idea of what to do with it. i also bought some of the die-namics dies from my favorite things at the beginning of may (has it been that long?) and i sadly haven't busted those out either. so i forced myself to use both of them in some way on this weeks {ippity} card. and i'm so glad i did! i think they both worked well together. the die cut through the fabric paper like buttah. awesome. after i cut it out, i wasn't sure what to do with it, then it hit me. make it like a little awning! i {heart} it!! i used three different {ippity} kits on this card...love in return, because of you, and a bit of burlap. they are all so cute!
