Thank goodness for Hip Hop!

My creative muse really loves Unity Stamp Co's Hip Hop! I have been having a hard time getting excited to create lately, but every Wednesday, she pulls it off for me. 

Hip Hop is inspiring...LOVE Thursdays!!! If you have no idea what I am rambling about, head on over to the Unity Stamp Co. blog for an inspiring blog hop by the design will eventually end up back over here. ;o)

For my card today, I started using the Mojo Monday sketch and then quickly got diverted, but you can see the basis of the sketch in the layout of the card.

I used one of my favorite stamp images from this month's kit of the month, Just You, that gorgeous "Thanks" chair....

Supplies used:
*Unity Stamp Co. Just You
*Marvy Uchida scallop square punch
*My Minds Eye Stella Rose paper collection
*Nestabilities labels die cut
*Fiskars scallop border punch
*American Crafts brad

The irony of today's challenge...

I am running LATE!
Late with my Friday Fun Challenge post.
This is today's challenge:
March 25--
Some of my most anticipated new books are releasing next week. 
To celebrate, today make a bookmark.

The irony is that one of those books that I was including in those "new books" above arrived yesterday and I got caught up in reading it so that is why I am late with today's post. ;o) 
{The book, Eternal Rider, was REALLY good!}

So, anyway, here is the new bookmark that I made using one of my most favorite Paper Makeup Stamps Moodies, Moody for Coffee.

Supplies used:
*Paper Makeup Stamps Moody for Coffee
*Cosmo Cricket paper
*StazOn Jet Black ink pad
*Martha Stewart doily punch
*Pink Paislee brad
*watercolor pencils
*corner rounder

Be sure to go check out what the rest of the FFC girls have made with this kit:
