Hip Hop!

We are at least on our 478th Hip Hop so I've run out of entertaining titles, bwahaha! BUT the title isn't what's important, it's the FUN!:) And what's funner (more fun?) than a NEW RELEASE?? NOTHING, I'd say! This weeks release is a super fun BEACH kit! It's called "Beach Days & Sun Rays!" Isn't that a cute name? I love each and every little (and I use this word loosely, the stamps are actually a really great size!) image in this kit! The fish are my fave though, they're so cute and retro! LoVE them!
I definately do some of my best work when I have a glass {or two} of wine while I stamp! Is it just me? LOL! Something about this card makes me real happy:) Maybe the colors and all the circles. It's just symmetrically right. All is right with the world! I sponged some Bashful Blue on the main image to look like water and then dabbed some Crystal Effects on to look like air bubbles. Hopefully that's what it looks like, lol! I stamped the sun and then colored it in with some Orange stickles. Wouldn't life be so much better if our sun was GLITTERY? WOAH! I'd love to wake up to that every morning, lmbo!:) The polka dot dp I used is from the Jersey Shore pack by SU! I love the colors in this paper, makes me happy:)
Okay, well now that Angela and the gang are heading back home from CHA, I'm sure she's dying to give some good discounts, sales, new stuff, WHATEVA! SO, make sure you check out the blog! Also, if this is your first Hip Hop or if you just Hip Hop Happened upon my blog and are wondering what the heck I'm talking about, check out the Unity Blog and hop through the DT blogs to see some new rubbah, TONS of inspiration, and end up at the blog offering UNITY SUGAR {blog candy!}
After you're done checkin out my cutie lil fishy card, head on over to Ms. Patter's blog! She's got such wonderful style and I for one can't wait to see what she has for us today:)
HIP HOP and see you in THE FORUMS starting at 11:00 CST!!!!!!!

Gorgeous card, though I have to admit when I first looked, I thought the sentiment said "You Swish" (as opposed to "You Wish") which would have been funny, but appropriate-ish, and now I'm rambling, but seriously, your card is gorgeous - and better off with the "You are my sunshine" sentiment, LOL!
