Chick Picks Blog Hop


SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2011


Chick Picks Blog Hop

Welcome to the Chick Picks Blog Hop, celebrating the official launch of our brand new challenge blog, Chick Challenges {with Ippity}! Chick Challenges was created by the Unity Endorsed Ippity Chicks to provide you with inspiring sketches, creative project ideas, and the chance to win some fabulous Ippity stamps!
Our blog hop will run from Oct. 1 to Oct. 5.  Each day, we will feature 5 new Ippity Chicks and their projects.  We will be sharing projects made using our favorite Ippity stamp sets.  To sweeten the deal even more, Chick Challenges is giving away Ippity stamp sets to (2) lucky commenter's!
To win, you must: 
1) become a "follower" of the Chick Challenges blog (www.chickchallengeswithippity.blogspot.com); 
2) visit each stop on the hop and leave a comment; and 
3) come back to the Chick Challenges blog and tell us what YOUR favorite Ippity stamp set is.  
(You can view all of Ippity's stamp sets by clicking on the "catalog" tab at the top of the Chick Challenges blog.)

Here is the hop order for Day 1:

**************BLOG CANDY from here at ippitydoda:***************
And to sweeten the deal even more, and to be eligible to win a stamp set from me, here at ippitydoda, sign up to follow my blog and don't forget to leave me a comment. I will randomly draw a name from all the new followers on my blog. I will announce my winner, here on my blog, on October 6.  The winner will receive one stamp set. Winner will have 48 hours to respond with all the mailing info to receive a free {ippity} set. If the set goes unclaimed after 48 hours, I will draw another name.
That means you could possibly win a free set from me and a set from the Chick Challenges blog.
****************************************************************
OK OK enough of the necessary info stuff, lets get to the fun stuff.
Let me show you my projects:
I decided to show off set  IPK150 The BEST, and it actually is a perfect set to welcome you to this blog hop "event".



This set is soooo versitile. The stamps in the set are perfect for cards as well as scrapbook layouts. 
Check out the complete set here

My next project is another card is along the same lines. Welcoming you to the neighborhood (the Blog). I hope you plan on coming back to have more fun at Chick Challenges and here at ippity do da.  




The stamps used to make this card are in set IPK131 House A Home. 
Check out the complete set here

My final project is a great set that is perfect for cards for children, Fathers Day, graduation or many other reasons that you will come up with. It would be perfect in that layout for Dad's day or how about when your son or daughter won that swimming event and came in first. You know, all those times that you want to recognize the effort put into whatever they did.
 The stamps used on the card are again from set IPK 150 The BEST.
