Hip Hop Thursday!

**This is post no. 2 for the day. Scroll down to read an exciting MFT announcement!**





Told you today was busy! It's my anniversary, the start of my MFT DT gig AND it's a fun filled {ippity} and Unity Hip Hop Thursday! Woohooo! I've been itching to make something with this soft and pretty color combo-kraft and lemon tart. I added in a touch of vintage cream. I also hadn't inked up this cute little bug from A Little Buggy, so I did that for today. Lots of texture with the use of an embossing plate,a corduroy button, some satin ribbon, and stitching. I even added in a bit of burlap-love that stamp! Oh,and at the last minute I inked up and cut out one of the cute scalloped photo corners from Fall For You. Sentiment is from Just Wanted to Say. Guess I pulled out a lot of {ippity} didn't I? It's great when you can mix and match stamps like this!
Maria is next and don't forget the {ippity} blog-leave a comment for a chance to win a prize.
