"Thank You" and Welcome to our first official Sketch Challenge #1!

Welcome to our new Chicks Challenges {with ippity} blog!
(insert party noise here)

On behalf of our Unity Endorsed {ippity} chicks, thank you for participating in our 5-day blog hop that started on October 1st. We hope you enjoyed the fantastic creativity and inspiration from our chicks! We'll be announcing our prize winners on Sunday, October 9th!

We would like to take this time to thank the fabulously beautiful 
Angela Magnuson of Unity Stamp Co
for assisting us chicks to get this awesome blog created...we couldn't have produced such a spectacular blog without her help!!

And speaking of spectacular design, we would also like to thank the amazingly talented 
Veronica Kietzman of VK Design Company
for materializing our thoughts into reality...isn't this blog design the greatest?!!  

Without further ado...
  I'd like to introduce you to our very first

Sherri Thompson

Here's a little bit about Sherri:
  "I have been a papercrafter for many years.  I started scrapbooking when my kiddos were little, and I added stamping and cardmaking about 7 years ago.  I met many of my scrappy friends while teaching classes at my local scrapbook store.  When the store was sold about 2 years ago, I wanted to find a way to continue teaching these classes.  I did some research and found Ippity-and I'm so glad that I did!  I love that these stamps are the best quality out there, they're made in the USA, and they have the best designs anywhere!  I now get to share my love of stamping and my love of Ippity by teaching workshops, blogging about my creations, and sharing Ippity through my Etsy shop."
