Hung up on HIP HOP...

Helllllooooo world!

Can you BELIEVE it is DECEMBER 23rd?  HIP HOP!!!!  In case you are new to Unity Stamp Company,  that is what we shout when we are excited about something...and hence, it turned into our little Thursday routine-complete w/ a DT blog "hop", all tying into a resounding...HIP HOP!

Seriously, though-I can't believe it's THAT time....and I am SO excited!   I have a fun card to show you today from the Kit of the Month for December, called "Just Be You"...


I LOVE the versatility of this kit-it is one of my faves :)   I really adore the big scalloped image in this kit, and also thought that the phone and "Im' hung up on you" sentiment was TOO fun not to create with.  Somehow I wanted to tie it all together, but wasnt sure how....until THIS came to mind:

I really like how this turned out, for a quick, quick, card.  Nothing makes me happier than to know that I can still crank something out in 10 minutes if and when I want to :)  I used some red satin PTI ribbon and  tied the button w/ some Marischino twine from the TWINERY :)   To add a bit more color, I paper pieced the inside of the circle w/ this fun plaid paper from Cosmo Cricket.   Overall I'm pretty pleased w/ the way it came out...and I am HUNG UP on this month's kit!  Adore it :)
Next Blog

Be sure to head on over to my girl Jimmi's blog next to see what she has for you today.  And don't forget to start at the UNITY blog, because there are a TON of sales and offers going on right now...I'm afraid I'm going to forget something!

Here's just a FEW of the awesome sales and promos going on:

*KIT CLUB Subscriptions NOW AVAILABLE for 6 mos or 1 year-what a FANTASTIC gift!

Well, that's about it for me....but I do have ONE more little card to share-I made this a long time ago and it's on the way to my sweet friend and our AMAZING Design Team Coordinator AJ Otto.  AJ does SO, SO much for us Unity girls to keep us organized, in the loop, and works uber-hard so I wanted to send her a little shout out today :)   I luvs ya TONS girlie and appreciate you so much!!!


The "Winter Wishes" stamp was from the PaperCrafts Magazine promo...which brings me to my last little bit of happy....GUESS who has a card published on page 77 of the Jan/Feb Papercrafts issue?  Yes, ME!!!!!!


I was THRILLED to be published by this mag and cannot thank all of you enough for the emails and congrats I've received-from people who I didn't even tell.   That feels SO good I can't even tell you!

Thanks for stopping by today w/ all the excitement and if I don't talk to you-have a VERY Merry Christmas and I'll see you SOON!
