Well, I'm Hip Hoppin', but just a little sick............fighting sinus infections like I do every winter...........certainly not anything terrible........just kinda nagging. But it certainly didn't stop me from hangin' out with my Unity Hip Hop buddies on SCS!!!! Nor from doing the challenges!!! LOL And a new kit was released called Beach Days and Sun Rays....OH MY GOSH how cute it is!!!! It's definitely on my shopping list!!! Make sure to check out all the new stuff and specials at Unity Stamps!!! You can see some super cute and fun photos Angela posted from CHA!!! She'll also have the other Hip Hop Hangover blogs for you have fun checkin' out!!!!
Okay, so the first challenge was to make a "gritty" card.........using sand, glitter, or something along those lines. Well duh!!! Of COURSE I chose glitter!!!! LOL But..........I used some coarse glitter that I haven't experimented with yet!! And I really like it!! I'm sure that's no surprise to any of y'all!!!! I haven't met any glitter I haven't loved!!! You know I love this Butterfly Beauty kit.........and it just went so well with my new Memory Box Sugardrop dsp!!!The second challenge was to make a BRIGHT card!!! I do have fun with these and they always help me get out of my PINK rut sometimes!!!! LOL Although I thoroughly enjoy my PINK rut!!! I used my Copics and some fun Pink Armadillo dsp!! Well, I didn't say I wouldn't use ANY pink!!! LOL This is the fun Cupcakes A' la Yummy kit!! Now, this kit has been retired, but don't worry!!! It's been incorporated into a bigger kit with other adorable stamps, now it's Mix Up Of Cuteness.
And the ribbon..............look at this STUNNING ribbon!!!! I'm lovin' it!!!! Where did I get it??? Well..........a FABulously talented and very sweet stampin' friend, Brandi Parshley, has the My Little Ribbon Shop on Ebay!!! She's just getting started and already has some very, very pretty ribbon!!! Brandi would LOVE for you all to go take a peek at her shop and I'm telling you that you will love it!!! Especially if you're a ribbon addict like me!!! LOL
