Almost Forgot my Ippity!

Holy Guacamole Batman!

I almost Forgot to get my Ippity post ready for today! Thankfully I was making my internet rounds before bed and saw some Ippity goodness and it sparked an OH YEAH thought!

So here is my Ippity:


I unfortunately had occasion for a Sympathy card recently, and was in a bind to get a few done like RIGHT NOW... so this is what I came up with.

Very quick and simple.

I love the sentiment from Ippity's Regal Greetings.

It is very elegant and goes perfect (I think) with this black and white card...

What do you think?

I am entering this in the Really Reasonable Ribbon's Ramblings Challenge #5 to make a black and white card with ribbon.

Don't forget that because it is MONDAY, IPPITY is having their CUSTOMER hop, so go see the rest of the list on the
IPPITY BLOG!

AND because it is AUGUST 2, today is my Momma's birthday!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!

I think CAS works very well for sympathy cards. This one is great. I need to make some up, just to have on hand. I find it VERY hard to make one when I need it!!

Happy B'day to your mom!!!
