in the meadow...

it's h{ippity} hop monday!!  and did you know that this week, on thursday, is new release day for new {ippity} stamps!  how exciting is that??  it's a great release!  there is a sneak peek on my {ippity} blog (and also a huge sale!)  i think the card i make for the hop this week turned out much cuter than i had planned.  which is always much better than having it turn out much worse!  i bought some of the tim holtz grungeboard, oh, back in july when i went to north carolina.  i just have never played with it!  so i busted it out and experimented with it.  i first inked it up with weathered wood distress ink.  then i sparyed it was some glimmer mist.  after it was dry (with help of the s'more maker, err...heat gun) i stamped it with the cute snowman.  i like the effect.  so now go check out all the other {ippity} goodness on this week's hop and don't forget the new stamps on thursday!

There is nothing about this card that I don't like. Love the cold feeling of the snow effect. The ribbon is beautiful. And I love the way you only rounded the top. You know how I love it when you do something unexpected like that.

Absolutely beautiful.
