It's another HIP HOPPIN day!

Happy Hip Hop, friends! I have two cards, using NEW STAMPS, to share with you today!! These cards were made with the new release called Rain & Flowers.
This first card is loosely based on Tami Mayberry's CPS sketch #103 (this week's sketch!) The funny thing, is that I didn't really set OUT to create a card based on the sketch, I think I just had it in my brain, and didn't realize I had "used" the sketch until I was all done!
(card goodies: cardstock (Papertrey Ink) patterned paper (We R MemoryKeepers) ribbon (KI Memories)


I paper-pieced the rainboots and legs on this image, and added lots of sweet blue ribbon to the card. I'd really like to point out the scallops on the bottom of the card .. . another of my new FAVORITE stamps, a set called Fun With Four Inches. Go check this out, you are going to be seeing these stamps making an appearance on a LOT of my cards!

Note: sentiment is from the OLD version of Mix Up of Cuteness - sorry, unavailable now! I didn't realize it when I made the card! Whoops!)

And now, back to the hopping girls. . .
your next stop is to the sweet miss Heather M
