Wednesday Wowzer & Tribute

26 Sep
Today it’s all about Amy.
We here at I Heart {ippity} are not just team mates but buddies.
We have a forum where we chat and check in with each other, lift each other up when needed, etc.
Well I felt a need to dedicate today’s post to Amy.
Now that might sound silly, right?  I mean you could say, you guys just are on a team, you’ve never met!!
Well there you’d be wrong!!
Here we are
I got to meet Amy earlier this year!
I just felt like I lived closer to her, she’d be someone I’d hang out with all the time!  She is such a doll!
(Left is me, right is Amy)
Here is a cute thought I came across to go with this post.
What better kind of helmet, than a CROWN?
I vote AMY, QUEEN FOR A DAY!
I am using the {ippity} set called Dream a little Dream.
What do you think?  Perfect to cheer someone up?  Right?
Now I’ll have to figure how to whisk her off to this Spa in Tuscany and I will have truly made her Queen for the Day!
I hope you have enjoyed my little Amy tribute and Wednesday Wowzer!

This is me today….

Wednesday WOWZER TIME!!!

19 Sep
Hello everyone.  It is me Jeannie, here with a fun, quick and easy WOWZER card today.
I am using the Sketch from Chick Challenges With Ippity CC44.
Here is my take on the sketch.
I am using 2 different sets.
The flower is from the set called, BECAUSE OF YOU.
The word “friends” is from the set called TIME FOR…FRIENDS & WINE.
I stayed pretty simple with my color scheme and spritzed the card with some matte Tattered Angels spray, since I could not get my glimmer mist unclogged! (ARGH!!!)
It still turned out lovely, I think!
I like how the flowers mimic “friends”.  Different, but the same.
I hope you have enjoyed my quick and easy card today.  This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana posting for I Heart {ippity}.  Have a great rest of the week!

Halloween is Almost Here???

12 Sep
Can you believe there is only a month and a half until Halloween?
Where is this year going?
Today I made a cute little Halloween treat box using the new {ippity} set called Halloween Greetings.
I filled a Clear Acetate Pillow box, from Joy’s Life.com, with Candy Corn and decorated the outside with the stamped image and other things to match the stamp and the season.
The adorable die of the Witches legs is from Cottage Cutz.
Wouldn’t these be cute as table decorations or party handouts?
Did I WOW you?  I hope so, or I’m not doing my job!!!
You better start thinking about Halloween, it is fast approaching!  This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana posting for I Heart {ippity}.  Have a wonderful day!

Shopping Girl’s Dream

7 Sep
This is a little shadow box I got for $1.00 at Hobby Lobby in the clearance section because what ever was in the shadow box had been ripped off.
Knowing I would use it at some point, yep, I bought the silly thing.
I’m so lucky to have all my Cheery Lynn Designs Dies to work with. Here is what my $1.00 “purchase” turned out like.
Improvement, agree?
I took the Reflections Scalloped Circle Die, and used it as a 1/2 circle for the banners at the top.
I framed the sentiment on the bottom with Scalloped Rectangles.
All my papers are by Authentique Paper and the stamp set it called If the Shoe Fits, by Unity Stamp Co.
I think this turned out adorable and I hope you enjoyed my post today.  This has been Jeannie from The Polka Cabana posting for Cheery Lynn Designs.
Be sure and check out our Challenge blog.
Our current them is STITCHING.
Enter to win a $20.00 shopping spree at Cheery Lynn Designs.

Wednesday Afternoon Wowzer

5 Sep
 Today is a day I really should have just stayed in bed!
I thought it was Tuesday, and it hit me at some point that it was Wednesday and then I remembered I am the WOWZER girl, and I have NOTHING to show for it. I dropped the kiddos off to school and had every intention to come home and make a QUICK, CLEAN and SIMPLE card and load it up real quick on the blog.  Well that is not so easy for me to do…I get sidetracked as I go!
First, I knew I wanted to use my own nails as my inspiration.  OK, that might be kind of VAIN but so what!  If you knew me, it is rare that I have a vain moment, allow me this one, OK??
To add to my own vain moment, well yes those are my nails…and I made my little design up all on my own…Yep I know…Nails = Just like crafting!  Easy Peasy!!
Here is my card based on my nails!  I am using the fabulous set called, FABULOUS GIRL.
What a fitting title!  Since I’m feeling rather fabulous about the way this card turned out!
All except for my intention of it being clean and simple.
Plus, I  will not go into the gory details of glue malfunctions, sticky tape stubborn backing, hot glue annoying web like strings, craft room mess that allows me to find nothing when I need it….
Nope we won’t talk about any of that at all.
I love working with tiny things like putting a tiny skirt in the stamped dress…
…adding the ruffles to the phrase…
…it’s the little things that make a card unique and a work of art!
I hope you have enjoyed my WOW for the today!
This has been me,  Jeannie,  from The Polka Cabana posting for I Heart {ippity}.
Have a great Wednesday, well what’s left of it that is!!!

Wednesday Wowzer Thursday!

30 Aug
Hello Everyone, It’s me Wednesday’s Child on a Thursday.  Yesterday was the new release BLOG HOP, so I am posting today instead.
I made up a pretty card to say farewell to a retiring co-worker.
I am using the set called Flowers + Friends = Priceless.
As many times as I have used this set, I never tire of it.
I couldn’t find an “I miss you” sentiment quickly enough, so I used some mini type letters.
Hopefully there is enough room for lots of people to sign their names.
My papers are from a past Deena Ziegler card kit. I love grabbing my kits when I am in a hurry.  I always use my own design but at least the guess work of the colors and paper matching is done and I get to focus on the design of the card instead!
I hope I have WOW’d you even if it is Thursday!  This has been Jeannie posting for I Heart {ippity}, have a great day!

Wednesday Wowzer {ippity} Time

22 Aug
Today I have a fun card I have made with a special friend in mind to give this to.
This is for a friend who lives locally and works harder than most women I know.
She is quiet and has been known to hide behind produce to avoid talking to people, but I can say I have been lucky enough to go out to Ice Cream with her, so it’s safe to say, we are beyond the hiding behind the produce stage:)
I am using the set called SIMPLY HOME for this card.  While making this card, I thought of my friend Brooke, for so many reasons.  She runs her own farm, she posts the most hilarious things sometimes about her adventures on the farm, she works with the local search and rescue team(I don’t know if I got the term right, sorry), she is a wonderful cook, a wonderful mom, wife and a devoted and loving daughter of god.
The phrase on the card says “Life is Simple.”  I thought of that, and physically life in far from simple for Brooke.  But it is important for you to know, that she is the kind of person that would tell you that if you just break life down to the basics, such as Living for and Loving God and finding Joy in something every day, then you could say that yes, “Life is Simple.” ….and that is why this card inspired me to think and write about Brooke and make this just for her!
So there you have it..a little peek into the life of someone I know!
I’ll give this to her as is…so she can just have it in her home, or if she feels like giving it someone at some point..she can!
I hope you liked my story…
Special kudos goes to Cheery Lynn Designs for the dies I used on this card also!
