hip hop it's JULY!

Happy almost fourth of July hip hop to ya! I LOVE the 4th- we spend it out at the beach house with lots of friends and fireworks! The kids are going crazy waiting!

On to hip hop- this week we are showcasing the kom- I did my first card with the Unity In America set in honor our the upcoming holiday-






I stamped the flag and colored it in with copics- I covered the hearts, stars and stripes with glossy accents- I like the look of the non traditional blue in this-


and here is my KOM card- the SUN made it into a KIT! I was so bummed when it was voted off the island!!! YEA for me though- Now I have it in a KOM!
And this card just makes me smile-bright cheery happy colors!


make sure to head on over to Lisa's blog next! Pin It Now!

Love the Sun too! I am glad that it made it into the KOM also!
I do hope that some of the others that got voted off will show up that way or in another kit. Some of those decisions were just so hard to make...you all did such a great job designing!

I'm glad to hear that some of the stamps that didn't win may be released with other sets, because MOST of the stamps I voted for didn't win. :)
