Hip Hop! For Real!!

Hip Hop!!!


Sorry if you visited my blog earlier today when my card wasn't posted yet.  I went in to work Wednesday evening around 9pm and didn't make it home until 4 am.  It's one of the drawbacks to my job, but whatcha gonna do... right?

This will be short and sweet because I really need to get some sleep tonight.  The card I made for today's Hip Hop uses the following sketch that was one of Lisa H's cards.




I made a card for my daughter Michelle's boyfriend's Birthday.  His name is Matt and they were over last night to celebrate his birthday when I got called in to work!  Atleast we got to eat dinner first... but I did miss the cake!!  ;-(


I followed the sketch the best I could and still make this masculine.  Even Matt said that the bow I used was masculine enough!  LOL!!  I used stamps from Life's Little Moments (and masked out the center portion) and also the sentiments from the Fall For You sets by Ippity.

If you want some Ippity... please click HERE get some!


Short and sweet, but I hope it inspires you in some way!!  Have a wonderful day and please head now to the the wonderful Lisa Arana's blog to continue on the Hop!

Next Blog


And if you didn't start at the beginning, please head to the Unity Blog and you will be taken on the hop all the way to the Ippity blog where there will be a new tutorial for you!

Have a good day... but for me it's good night!!  ;-)
