It's a Hip Hop Hangover!

Good morning out there in Blogland! How are we all today? Seems there were a few of us needing some extra love on Hip Hop yesterday, so I want to send out some big hugs to Ashley, Jacquie, Shemaine, Tonya, and Kristen. Also to Robyn, Valerie and Christi, whose husbands are now, or have been deployed. And one to Ky - just because.

It's Baby week at Unity and there are some new stamps from designer Lisa Hetrick. This is one awesome chica. She's responsible for some of my favourite stamps, including the gigantoid cupcake from Piper's card last week. The new stamps plus the specials are listed on the Unity blog here. Angela's put up some more bundle packages and is offering free shipping through Sunday. Can't beat that with a stick!

My card for today is very clean and simple. The challenge was 3+3. No more than 3 colours, not including neutrals, and no more than 3 layers, including your base. Since I tend to go for the CAS (clean & simple) look most of the time, this challenge was right up my alley. I combined it with the sketch from SplitcoastStampers challenge CAS08.Deets:
Paper - Pink Pirouette, Whisper White (SU!)
Accent - adhesive die cut (SU!)
Ink - Kiwi Kiss (SU!), Rich Cocoa (Memento)
Etc - clear embossing powder, Copic markers

That's all from me today. Starting Monday it'll be my turn for Growing in Unity, so I'll have something to share with you every day next week, plus the drawing for Birthday Blog Candy!

You are such a sweetie! Here's a hug back, just for you. I'm not seeing pictures of the famed haircut yesterday...?? Love your card, too. I didn't complete that challenge because I started the challenge and ended up with 6 layers!

Cripes, I really need to hip hop, because I'm missing all that's goin' on.

Glad you're sending hugs. I'll join along!

PS the bookmark is pretty easy....need a tutorial? Let me know...that is one I can probably do.
