Hip Hop Birthday Hangover!

Hip Hop Hangover

Before I say anything else, I want to wish Unity Stamps a VERY

Happy Birthday!!!!

Yesterday's Hip Hop was pretty amazing. The design team has been giving sneak peeks of the new May Kit of the Month, which is being released today. It is adorable!

The past week has been on the rough side for me, so I haven't gotten much done. I do want to thank everyone for being so supportive. It really means a lot to me.

I completed this first card for Viva Las VSN last Saturday. It was for the challenge I hostessed, Cirque du Soleil - Love. The idea was to be inspired by any of the songs on the soundtrack to the Love show. Let me tell you, there are some hugely talented people on Splitcoast Stampers. Just check out the gallery for the challenge.
I chose to use Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds as my inspiration.

The other card I have to share today is from Unity's "1" Happy Unity challenge, which was to make a one layer birthday card. Considering how mojoless I feel, it came out far better than I expected. It's very sparkly in person. I used Copic atyou Spica markers to colour in the cupcakes.

Stamp Deets for both cards: All Unity
1, 2, 3, 4 Thousand Cupcake Calories!
Celebrate - April KOTM
Lollipop Trees - April KOTM

That's all from me for now. I'll have an Etsy-inspired project to post later today.
