Hip Hop Happy!

Welcome to the school edition of Hip Hop!!! 

School is almost over and everyone is thinking about teacher's gifts. Over the years, Jacob has had several teachers that would give their students cards when they did something special. So for my gift, I made up a set of these cards...


The cards measure 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 and fit into one of the Provo-Craft bandaid tins that you can alter. The very first Unity kit of the month, Bliss & a Birdie, had a sentiment in it that said, "You Rock!" I thought that it was perfect for the insides of these cards (but forgot to take a photo of the insides.) It's also on the tag on the handle of the tin.

Supplies Used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Bliss & a Birdie
*Unity Stamp Co. Birdie Inspiration
*Unity Stamp Co. Confession: i luv unity!
*Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday papers
*Marvy Uchida punches
*ribbon
*copper brads
*watercolor pencils
*Stampin Up punch
*Kraft Bazzill
*Memories brown inkpad

********

And now I have another sneak peek of the incredible June kit of the month...

Isn't that ice cream cone adorable? I used this week's CPS sketch (#117) for the layout of the card.
Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. June Kit of the Month
*Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday paper collection
*watercolor pencils
*Marvy Uchida punches
*Memories brown inkpad
*copper brads

Now you need to head on over the the very lovely and talented...
