hip hip thursday 3-19

Its an eggstravaganza kind of day!! HIP HOP everyone and welcome to your first stop on the {bunny} hop today...!!

Did you join me from Angela's blog and see our fun game (and prize) this week? :)

Cosmo Cricket has always been one of my favorite paper crafts manufacturers. They are funky and hip and always a whole lot of fun, with a product line that is always energetic and cutting edge eggciting. This week, I'm playing with the hello sunshine release, so bright and cheerful. I love that each collection always comes with a journal card sheet that feature journal cards that are the perfect scale for card making...

On this one, I used the "you and me" journal card with the Unity Stamp Company March Kit of the Month Simple Life


colors used:
cool gray 50, cool gray 70, slate gray, non-photo blue, poppy red, dark brown, marine green, limepeel, apple green


On my second card, another journal card provides a nice backdrop for the tree, also from
Unity Stamp Company March Kit of the Month Simple Life and the "enjoy" sentiment from the February Kit of the Month Endings and Beginnings

Colors used:
limepeel, marine green, pumpkin orange, and terra cotta

We are also so inspired by the beautiful stamps and cards featured this week on Stamp It week at Moxie Fab World. We are honored to see Unity in the mix... :) Be sure to check it out and leave some love for papercrafts...

Thank you for stopping by!!!

Your next stop is Natalie's blog. Enjoy the rest of your hop! Hip Hop!
