A Happy Birthday and Itty Bitty Hip Hop

Good morning and good day!  If you're here for the UNITY HIP HOP  - WELCOME!

Before we get too far into anything here, we are celebrating a very special woman today.  It happens to be her birthday and we all want her to know how very special she is!

This is for Angela, our fearless and gentle leader, the creative genius behind Unity, the woman who has so much spunk and a voice that resonates with so many people.  She has words of wisdom that she loves to pass on, and I truly believe that she has the gift of encouragement.

"Happy Birthday Lovely You"

**A thank you to Julie Campbell - I never would have put buttons on this LeChic stamped image if it weren't for seeing you do it!  Was it created for buttons and I just had no clue?

Unity Stamps: LeChic and January's KOM (To the Moon & Back)
Cardstock: Bazzill
Ink: Ranger
Flower: Prima
Adhesive: Glue Arts, Glue Glider Pro, and Adhesive Squares
Sticker: Crate Paper Restoration Line
Hemp Cord


For today's hop, we are featuring none other than Itty Bitty stamps!  They are just the cutest images, and they aren't that itty bitty at all, they are a good size!  AJ asked which Itty Bitty I wanted and gals, it was SO hard to choose.  I just let Unity decide which one to send me out of a choice of 3.  And someone must have had the foresight that I have a young baby boy in the house and I ended up with the Bouncy Blue stamp.

Below, you can see the January kit, I was able to use 2 sentiments together for Angela's birthday card. 
Have you thought about joining the club?  There are quite a few perks - check it!

Do you know about the Hip Hop Sketches?  If you play along, you can win some stamps!  I'm thinking that people just don't know where to find these challenges and where to upload.  You can find the information at Splitcoast Stampers in Unity's Challenge Forum


Now it's time to hop on over to the next blog in the hop!

Love those cards - I have had LeChic Vintage since it came out and didn't realize that was a button card. Now we can stop buying vintage buttons and use this stamp and the button stamps we get from Unity. More money to buy stamps!

Love that stamp and what you did with it!

Ola said...

I love your card, very elegant! (I'm not sure if you have time to read all of your comments, but what is it that you use to hold your cards to photograph?)

Your layout is just beyond adorable... love it!
