{ippity} Matters ~ by Michelle Ogdahl

Happy WEDNESDAY to all of YOU!!

I hope everyone had a FABULOUS Holiday weekend  :)  With having Monday off, my brain is trying to tell me it is only Tuesday...YIKES it IS Wednesday and I need to get an {ippity} blog post done.

I was checking the Gallery on Splitcoast Stampers site and found some {ippity} INSPIRATION there!


I LOVE this card made by {ippity} chick, Christy Schackart! 
She used stamps from the {ippity} kit "The Simple Things". 
This sentiment is SO SIMPLE and SO TRUE!!

Here is MORE INSPIRATION that jumped out at me :) 
Michelle Woerner, who is also an {ippity} chick,
made these SUPER CUTE cards using stamps from the new {ippity} set "Now and Always".


I want to remind everyone of this weeks Hippity Hop Challenge
as we honor our active duty Military Personnel...
let's send them some cards!!

Ippity Hippity Hop Challenge 26


Operation Write Home

Operation Write Home is an organization that collects blank handmade cards from crafters all across the country and sends them to members of our military so they can send them back home to their loved ones. They also collect cards of appreciation and gratitude for the service men and women currently serving our country. Isn't that a great idea? Think about being in Afghanistan and knowing that your loved one has a birthday coming up and not being able to send him/her a card because you had no way to go out and buy one!

Crafters to the Rescue!!

So for your challenge please make one or more themed cards (blank inside) or a thank you card to honor a member of the military and mail it to Unity Stamp Company. For prize purposes, the challenge will close on Sunday night, June 6th, but we will accept cards postmarked by June 14th to include them into the package that will be sent to OWH.

Unity Stamp Company
PO Box 424
100 W. Central Avenue
New London, MN 56273

There are some important things to know before you make your card, so please check out the OWH site. They also explain what special occasions or holiday they are currently collecting cards for but they always welcome the "thinking of you" or "missing you" types of cards!


Check out more details HERE!

When you participate in this challenge upload your creations to the SCS Gallery using the keywords:

One lucky random winner will receive:

Not only is this a FUN CHALLENGE,
