Told you I'd be back sooner this time ;)
It's HIP HOP day with {Unity}!!
I made another birthday card using the {January Kit of the Month}.
Only a few more days to get this kit at a LOW price before February comes out...and FYI...it's a cute one too.
As much as I LOVE the KOTM I also have a HUGE crush on the SMAK kits.
AWESOME right?!?!

and here's my lil' card for this week.
Simple but I love the layout.  I think I'm gonna cheat and make a few of these in different colors to build up my stash.
Now hop on over to Robyn's blog.

WOWZA...December 15th was SERIOUSLY my last post!!
Where have I BEEN???
Well...that's a LONG story.
Life has taken me in a different direction as of lately and crafting has been bumped...just a little...just for a while.  I love the hobby to much to walk away from it and luckily my design teams have been very understanding (even with my lack of communication).
BUT
I do have something today...I'm a little rusty but getting inky again was FUN!!
I dug out some {ippity}:
How You Doin?
and
Time For...Friends & Wine
Did you know you can order {ippity} from a chick
directly from the Unity website now?!?
Well you can...just click on my picture and load up your cart.  You can even combine Unity with your {ippity} purchases...way cool huh!!

Be back....sooner than last time ;)

WOW...it's been dead around here lately...sorry :(
When life decides to get overwhelming it gets difficult to keep up with the fun stuff like crafting.  Luckily today is HIP HOP so I had a good excuse to come back and show off my latest creation.  I made two of these cute little mittens for my kiddo's teachers.  The inspiration came from {Melissa Sauls} blog.  I had most everything I needed to make these and they were super simple once I got going.
For the sentiment I used the Christmas postage stamp from the Unity Kit of the Month
{Sept 2011 All Seasons}
Isn't it cute!!
It could easily hold a small gift or a gift card so that means it also qualifies for this month's
CHECK IT OUT!!!!
Now head on over to see Robyn's creation this week.

Welcome Hip Hoppers!!
I ALMOST forgot about today's Hip Hop...luckily my project was done but I went to bed last night feeling like there was still something to do.  I laid awake for two hours and nothing ever came to me...but this morning...EEKKKKK!!!
I've been getting busy with my NEW {SMAK kits}...tell me you have November's because it ROCKS!!
These stamps are GI-NOR-MOUS and I {heart} them!!
 December's {SMAK Kit} is available TODAY!!!!
 Just as FAB right?!?!
I just showed a peek of my {December Daily} album the other day but this one is for a friend of mine (hope you like it Rebekah).  I used the same envelope concept but changed the cover.  Honestly when I finished it I debated on keeping it for myself... ;)
Now hop on over to see Robyn :)

Happy Thanksgiving Friends!!!
I actually have a Thanksgiving card to share with you today 
BUT
this is how lame I am....it's from LAST YEAR!!
I made it for someone who needed a few Thanksgiving cards and then never got around to showing it.  It's been sitting on my computer for a whole year just waiting for today to be seen.
I made the Happy Thanksgiving part on my computer and printed it onto cardstock.  The pumpkins are from a Verve set called {Tall Oaks}.  It's an oldie but goodie clear back from when I was a guest designer.  I colored the pumpkins with copics and fussy cut them.
Hope everyone here in the states is having a Happy Thankgiving!!
