It's Hip Hop Hangover Day!!

Thanks for hopping over for the Hip Hop Hangover Blog Hop. Did you start at the Unity Blog? If not, click HERE to start at the beginning and not miss any of the special creations made by Unity Stamp Co. fans!!




Wasn't yesterday's Unity Hip Hop fun? That new Hauntingly Sweet Halloween set by Lisa Hetrick is so adorable and I am going to have to break down and buy it because I can't pass up a sale! LOL! I am also stoked about all the past kits of the month being on sale for $35. When you add the 10% discount on the total order, you can get a past kit of the month for only $31.50!!! I think I am only missing 3 of the past kits!! Unity's kits are awesome and they are the best bargain if you are a kit club member, so I strongly recommend that you become a member if you haven't already!!





Also, since a lot of Unity fans are going to be hopping by today, I wanted to share with you the link to where I purchased my In-Store only Unity Kit called 100% Happiness.








I loved this kit and knew I had to have it when I saw it, but no LSS's carry Unity close to me. So I found Paper Maniac, an on-line store, through a thread on the Unity Forum and purchased my kit there. Patricia Olson who runs the store is fantastic and professional. She had my stamps in the mail the same day I ordered them. She also has a monthly AutoShip program for all the new Unity In-Store releases that are coming out!





She has only ONE KIT LEFT so hurry over if you are interested!!



So, without further delay, here are a couple of cards I made yesterday to share with you today!



This card uses the Pocket, Posies and sentiment stamps from Unity's July KOM. I LOVE this kit! I can see me using it over and over again!! The card was made for this week's Clean and Simple challenge CAS24 which was to use turquoise, orange and yellow colors! I tried to keep it clean and simple, but two mats and many rhinestones later I hope it still fits the CAS category!! LOL!!



My second card was made for the "stamp and go" challenge that Jeanne gave us for one of the Hip Hop challenges yesterday! We were to stamp a line image stamp (no solids) and then leave it alone without coloring or paper piecing it! Now that was definitely a challenge for me! I like how this turned out, but I did add a few tiny rhinestones to the pears for just a touch of extra. The pear stamp is from the July KOM and the sentiments from the June KOM.

Thanks so much for looking and I hope your bucket is filled with fun blogs to hop to!!
