Hip Hop retro style!

It's that day of the week! Hip HOP!!! and the retro version is going to be fun! Have you seen any older stamps in a new light?? Well...my first one isn't too old! Here is the newer beach days and sun rays kit. I painted the sun with shimmerz for extra sparkle. It's cut out and mounted on the nesties circle with pop dots. The background is run through the swiss dots folder-And then here is the sailboat in blue- I paper pieced the sail to match the DS paper on the bottom of the card again- so much you can do with this one-

and....... you have reached the END! leave a comment here for the chance to win this fun little set appropriate for Valentines day or any day of the year!

Have a great hip hoppin day! Pin It Now!

Love the boat card. The sun makes me think warm weather is ahead. But, I am sorry, I just don't understand the skull with the hearts for eyes. When I saw it on SU I thought "what is that, what am I missing?" I just think it is weird. Is there some meaning to it?
