It's a Hip Hop Thang!

What's shakin peeps!? It's FRIDAY EVE! One of my favorite days of the week:D This week has been INCREDIBLY busy at work, I mean I haven't had a chance to sit at my desk and do any of my "office" work all week! I'm out and about base, collecting lead and copper water samples, doesn't that sound fun? NOT! I'd MUCH rather be HIP HOPPING with ya'll!!!!!!!!!!!!
Do you get your January KOM yet? If not, YOU WILL LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!! I think besides the sweet peacock, this house stamp is my FAVE!!!!!!!!!!
Isnt' it darling?? It went absolutely PERFECT with this paper by October Afternoon!!!!!!! I just got some Oderless Mineral Spirits in and have been practicing with my prisma color pencils, this is SO much fun:) I was using baby oil at first, but it was pretty oily {Ha! Go figure!} and didn't blen as well as I'd like. So I ordered some OMS and have fallen in LoVe!! The stuff moves the pencil around like buttah! Made coloring this lil house so enjoyable! The sketch for this card is SC212, What a fun sketch:) OH and the sentiment is actually from the September KOM, I cut it apart so I can lay it out like I want, it's much simpler than leaving it one long stamp:) I didn't take a picture, but the rest of the sentiment {is never long} is stamped on the inside of the card!
Check out *the blog* for new releases and deals! AND as always, don't forget to come and hang out with us in the HIP HOP thread in the forums:)
I don't want to be the one to stand between ya'll and some blog candy, so your next stop on this wild ride is my friend CHRISTI! Christi is *so* inspiring {and guess what! I get to meet her in March, w00t!} and always has the CUTEST projects (and pics of her cute kids!) Enjoy the rest of your HIP HOP! I'll see ya in the forums!!

Ok-I have to get some OMS. I've been using baby oil and while it works ok, I don't feel like it blends all that well and makes the colors muddy.
