Unity Hip Hop {Dec 30th}

Welcome to another Hip Hop! Can you believe the year is almost over and this is our final Hip Hop of 2010? This means that a brand new Kit of the Month is on the horizon and you are going to love it. LOVE. The January Kit will surpass all expectations and fulfill your wildest dreams... to the moon and back! For real.

As we say farewell to December and 2010, I thought it would be appropriate to make a card using two images from Just Be You. I stamped the gridded frame first, created a mask and stamped the background using Giving It All Meaning. I purposely put the 'enjoy' definition in clear view on the bottom left corner to lead it into the teacup which also says 'enjoy'. You can see that there are several tie-ins with the three colours I used. I love this card except I noticed too late that I forgot to cut out the handle for the teacup. Argh. Me. Forget to cut? :)

Select Unity sets are now 30-75% off and you get a free stamp for every $10 spent! Plus, the free shipping special is still on for all U.S. and Canadian residents. Visit the Unity Store for all the details. :)

Thank you for taking time out of your busy holiday schedule to visit!
Now it's time to Hip Hop on over to Julie's blog!

Oh, it looks fine with the handle left alone. Fantastic, in fact -- love the frame/definition combo, and the twine adds a lot of sass.
And yes, the next kit looks great...those shoes are fun! Too bad I'm on a freeze...for now. :)
