Stamp Something and Hip Hop Hangover!

I'm being lazy this morning. Okay, let's not say lazy, how about creative! I planned on making three cards yesterday and the time just got away from me so I had to combine two of my tasks at hand. This is my Stamp Something card and my post for the Unity HHH post. We'll call it a tow-fer!

First up is my Stamp Something card for this week's challenge, combined with the Oh, My Word Unity Challenge from yesterday's Hip Hop. This week at Stamp Something we are honoring our sweet DT member, Emily. Many of the sketches we have done this past year were created by her, so we thought it only fitting to do another sketch of her's. Try this one, or find a previous sketch from the Stamp Something blog to play along. Be sure to link it up to the Stamp Something blog. Here's how I used the sketch.

Papers are Jillibean soup (ummmmm, their Kraft line is to die for!) and images are from Unity's May KOTM!

Hip Hop Hangover

The next card was for the Unity in Stars challenge for Hip Hop yesterday. I made this card for my neighbor who is graduating from highschool. I used a fun and retro color combo (kiwi kiss and raspberry fizz) paired up with more Jillibean Soup kraft papers. The distressed star and sentiment are from Unity Stamp Co.( Jan. KOTM and Sentiments O' Simple). I finished it off with some kaiser rhinestones. So it's not your typical graduation card, but that's what I love about it. Check out the rest of the Unity inspiration by following the links in this thread. It's a hero theme this week. I could name quite a few people that I consider a hero but I'll leave it at one today, my husband. Seriously, he makes me proud. He is a wonderful husband, and loving father, and such a great provider for our family. He is also an ER physician. I like to say I've got my own George Clooney. LOL! The real ER is not as glamorous as the TV shows like to make it. My DH, Tim, works hard, long, and crazy hours. His schedule is totally random from month to month, heck, it's crazy from day to day! He does save lives everyday and I think that is pretty heroic. He is very modest about this and he would die if he knew I was blogging about it. He is my hero and I am very proud of him. And even though he rarely ever hears back from his patients (he treats them, stabilizes them, and then sends them on to another physician. He doesn't have follow up with any of them), I'm sure there are many people out there that think he is a hero, too. Have a wonderful Memorial Day! I'll be back this weekend, but just in case you aren't, I wanted to say that now. Hugs, Lisa
