Hippity Hop

It's Monday. It's H{ippity} Hop time. This is not the card I had intended when I sat down to craft last night. But, sometimes your supplies speak to you and you must listen. But, it seems to me that I'm getting very Orange in my Ippity. I think it's the gorgeous October Afternoon papers!!

Supplies: Stamps -- Ippity Because of You, Cardstock -- SU, PP -- October Afternoon, Ink -- Palette Burnt Umber & SU markers. And, of course, Glimmer Mist.

On a side note, I tried to make my own glimmer mist tonite. My mist, in a word, SUCKED! I used cheap spray bottles from Target & the paint I guess got stuck (I think I might have used too much paint too). So a friends said use the mini misters, they are better. The mini mister became a squirt gun, NO MIST. None of the results had enough glimmer for me. I guess I'm stuck paying Archiver's prices (and praying for coupons!)

Awww Suzi, get some Luminart and mix that with water.....e-mail me, I just found an online store that has them 40% off...much cheaper in the long run and they are just as gorgeous as the glimmer mist.

And your card is sooo pretty!! Love it!
