A Sweet Moment Indeed...

Oh my!  Get ready for some color because it's
H{ippity} Hop Monday!!!

This is the weekly gathering of Ippity Chicks and
fans of Ippity who love to inspire you to
play with the fabulous rubber from Ippity!

I had lots of fun putting this card together because my goal was to 
play with color and fun images,
and that's what I did!

I love this DP from K&Company's 'Sweet Nectar' Set.
I stamped the cupcake and heat embossed it so it would
really show off the colors of the 'frosting'.
If there's one thing that people get to know about me,
I do NOT like to color, as a rule, but coloring an image like
this is simple and fun because once it was complete, I topped
it with 'diamond' Stickles.
I am absolutely in love with the Martha 'heart loop' punch.
I spotted some CrAzY beautiful work using it over on 
Sankari Wegman's blog and I had to have it!
Adorned with four different colors of bright and beautiful
baker's twine from The Twinery and some fabby's a done deal!

Here's what I used to make this colorful creation...

I have both of these stamp sets available
for purchase over on my Ippity page here
and I would love to be your Ippity Chick!!!

inspire you to play!
