"A Good Book Has No Ending"

Good Afternoon To All! How is your week going? Mine has been very busy, just the way I like it! I have a very big announcement to make today, along with my creation!

My very good friend Aletha J. Williams has asked me to be on her Design Team for Get Hippity With Ippity/Join The Unity Community. Aletha is now an independent seller of Unity's Ippity Line Of Stamps! Isn't that awesome? Right now Aletha has two Ippity Groups... one at The Latte Lounge and the second one at Simply Scrapping Crafts! (Quick reminder... You MUST be a  member of The Latte Lounge and Simply Scrapping Crafts in order to join these groups!) She also has a challenge blog, Get Hippity With Ippity/Join The Unity Community! And another big surprise... get ready... (drum roll)...

a SALE!

 From today until April 22, 2011 you will receive a 20% discount on ALL stamp sets! Depending on which group you are a part of, here are the codes to be use with Paypal... TLL20IPPITY or SSC20IPPITY. Be sure to use these codes, as Aletha will be refunding the 20% back to you after your payment. All prices on the sets include shipping and tax already... SO NO SURPRISES AT THE CHECKOUT!! I think that is just awesome! I myself, will be taking advantage of this wonderful SALE! LOL!

Now for our First Challenge At Get Hippity With Ippity/Join The Unity Community, the theme is "Spring/Summer Anything Goes"! There are only 3 rules... you can use any image (rubber or digi); but if you use an Ippity or Unity Stamp your name will go in the drawing TWICE... #1 You MUST tell us what Ippity or Unity Stamp that you used, #2 You MUST post it in one of the two Ippity Groups found either at The Latte Lounge or Simply Scrapping Crafts, and #3 In order to be eligible for the drawing of prizes you must link up your creation on the blog here using Inlinkz! It's as easy as that! So what are you waiting for... come check us out!!

Now for my creation...

I have used both Ippity Stamps and a beautiful digi image by The Stamping Boutique! The Ippity Stamp Set that I have used is "Books a 'Flutter", it contains the stack of books stamp and the sentiment at the top of my creation! The girl image is by The Stamping Boutique called "Little Girl - Once Upon A Time". I think these stamps worked perfectly together, what do you think?
