Happy Hip Hop!

 Hip Hop Party People!!

Today's theme is grateful/thankful projects...I had big plans for a project, but I could only muster up a card this week!

First up- my WCMD Challenge WINNER!!!

PLAYSWITHGLUE

You have won an Itty Bitty for USCWCMD01- Paper Piecing Challenge-
Email Jimmi.Mayo@gmail.com and let her know please!

 My Thankful card- Stamps are Samantha Walker's Fall Family Memories.   I used Kazan's sketch from 2S4Y this week, and decided on a little purple in my colors...I don't usually use much purple, but am lovin' how it turned it out!  The dies are from Spellbinders™, and I colored the rhinestones with my copic to match better.  The twine is from the Twinery- in lilac.



And Unity is sponsoring the Play Date Cafe Challenge blog this week- Check out the colors and play along.   There are prizes up for grabs!
  Here is my take on it-
I used a little black to make the colors pop.  Again-twine from the twinery, Spellbinders dies, and DD & KOM stamps from Unity.
Make sure to head yourself on over to Shemaine's blog next!






Enjoy!
