Another Whimsie Kind of Day!! And Hip Hop!!

Just a reminder that today is Thursday which means that it is Hip Hop day at Unity. That means that if you start at the Unity Blog, you can hop around to all the Unity DT members and be completely impressed and inspired by their creations! This week the DT is featuring Unity Kits from days past!!

Start HERE and have fun hopping!!

This week has been a little crazy for me. I typically would have had my chance to work on some of the SCS challenges and even some Unity ones, but with all the new DT work (which I am NOT complaining about) and having to work (Which I AM complaining about) I simply haven't had a chance to work on some of the challenges yet!

I am not sure that I will get a chance today either, but tomorrow is always a new day... and I am off from work! So, there is hope!!!

I do have another card that I made using one of Melyssa's Whimsie Doodle stamps. I just love this image. I am not sure if it's because I live in FL and we spend a lot of time on the water, or if it is just stinking adorable that I can't help but love it! But either way... I just LOVE this image!! He is called Flip Flop Bear and he can be purchased HERE.
Using the Inspirational Card Sketches sketch #119, I came up with this littel creation for your viewing pleasure!!

Flip Flop Bear in the Water

The Fine Print: Sketch: Inspirational Card Sketches #119; Digistamp: Whimisie Doodles (Flip Flop Bear); Stamp: Unity; DP: Basic Grey (Marrakech); Ink: Amuse (black); Brads: BG. InkEssentials Glossy Accents. Stickles. Paper piecing.

Here is a close up showing how I used the Glossy Accents from InkEssentials to make the "glass" look on the mask.

This close up gives another look at the mask but also shows the shimmer from the stickles I put on the waves to accent them.

Well this will do it for today! I have to go to a C-section at work in a bit and then later today my daughter Michelle and her boyfriend Matt are coming over to celebrate his birthday which was on Wednesday. And also, Leah is coming home from college this weekend and I will get to see her before she heads to Orlando with her boyfriend's family this weekend!!

Yippee!! It is a great day cause I get to be with all my kids!!

I hope you have gotten over to Whimsie Doodles to at least download the free Turtle file, and hopefully you have gone over to Melyssa's Etsy store to buy some of her images. Aren't they all so cute??

Have fun Hip Hopping and I will be back with a blog post by tomorrow I hope!!

May your bucket always be overflowing with activities to keep you busy and never bored!

Oooh this is so cute!! I love the waves and poor Flip Flop up to his waist! The glass effects on the goggles is perfect. And lastly I love the colours you choose and that you continued the colours in the brads.
