Hip Hop! Love is in the Air!

Happy Hip Hop ladies! Are you having FUN? Have you heard that Donna Downey is hip hopping with us? She's not participating in the blog hop, but she is using some Unity and show-casing it on her blog! Check her out {here} if you haven't had a chance yet! I can't wait to see her put her spin on the stamps!
I have a couple cards to share today using the amazing "Love in the Air" kit! The hot air balloon in the kit is SO FUN! It's unique, the only hot air balloon stamp I own and I *LOVE* it:)
I used this weeks sketch on SCS for the layout for this card. Isn't it awesome? Just a great layout I never could have dreamed up, lol!
The paper is from the Urban Prairie collection by BG, as are the buttons! The "thanks" sentiment is from "Thank you words" and the hot air balloon is of course from "Love in the Air". The ribbon is Not Quite Navy 1/8" grosgrain by SU!
Okay, onto my next project!
This was such a fun card to make! This is actually the envelope:) I found this project on the resources page on SCS {HERE}! That place is a gold mine for fun techniques and projects! Go check it out:)
Anyways, I followed the tutorial to the "T" so I won't bore you with details that are already written out so much better than I could post:)
Here's the insert to this card:
SO fun to make:) Not sure who I'll give it to since it's DEFINATELY to girly for DH, lol! Oh well:)
Your next stop on the hop is the lovely and talented LAURA!
Enjoy your hip hop! See you in the forums at 11:00 CST {HERE}!

I just love that balloon in pastel! I'm not a big pink person, so it's gotta really be special for me to love it. And I DO!
