Hip Hop Joy!

We have two card challenges and lots of games (and maybe a couple prizes ) today in the Hip Hop thread in the Unity Forum! Come join us!

Check out Angela’s blog for the full list of specials or if you get lost during Hip Hop.

Today’s theme is things that bring you joy. Easy… my friends and family. I’m not going to even count them in my list because what they bring me is beyond joy.

So here’s my list of things that bring me joy (in no particular order):

1. A good cup of coffee – big yum

2 A brand new stamp image. It’s always so fun to color an image for the first time.

3. Cheesecake – another big yum

4. My buckets of markers. So many purty colors…..mmmmm

5. Cows. Not sure what my thing is about cows but they always make me smile. Not just a little smile but the dopey, look like your drunk kinda smile every time I see one close up.

My first card uses the New Release Feel the Joy.


My next card and envelope using the February KOTM Endings and Beginnings.



Here’s an envelope:


Here are the Prism papers I used:


Simply Smooth White, White, Iced Pink, Tawny Brown Dark
