H{Ippity} Hop Monday!

Yay! Its Monday! I know, I know...Mondays are yucky...I hear ya! But, Mondays mean H{ippity} Hop so its not all bad! If you are here for the blog hop you should probably stop over at the {ippity} blog to get a list of participants and to get the low down on how you can possibly win a prize by joining into the Hippity Hop Twist Challenge over at Splitcoast Stampers (SCS).

Now, on to my card. This time I made a Christmas card. Imagine! Me! The Grinch making Christmas cards in February! Its not a secret that I am not a big fan of the Christmas holiday. One of the reasons why I don't like it is because of the stress of having to get everything done and, like most moms, having to do most of the work myself. So, this year, I have joined the Christmas Card Challenge at SCS and also taking part in the challenges posted at Jingle Belles, just to see if some of the stress can be taken out by having my cards done in plenty of time! This card was done for the current Jingle Belles challenge, which was to use something warm on a card...mitts, hats, felt...whatever you felt was warm.


I used a Unity Set for the Hat and the Mittens. The Warmest Wishes sentiment came from the "Season of Joy" set from the Spring 2010 collection. You can get your {ippity} fix on my sales blog as well, since I am an {ippity} chick!

Thanks for visiting!! Hop on over to the next one on the list to see some more great projects!

Love, Patricia

Oooh! I love this. I adore that it's not your traditional colors or on a snowman (not that I have anything against snowmen - they're super cute!) This is just UBER cool! Love it.
