It's Hip Hop Thursday, & I've Got 2 RAKs!!!

Welcome to our 5th week of Hip Hoppin'. I hope you are getting some fun, creative ideas each week. I also hope that you are seeing some great things to put on your wish lists for Christmas, birthday, anniversary, heck, every holiday! You get the idea. :) And if you have just come from Linsey's blog, I am sure you are already have seen some great inspiration along the way! If you haven't come from Linsey's blog, you will want to go back to the Unity blog to start your official "hop."

For my first creation this week, I used the Splitcoaststampers Sketch SC192 and the Unity August KOM Remember Happiness. I love this kit. I stamped the flower on black Bazzill then colored it in with my Prisma colored pencils. I have got to find a better black cardstock for stamping! I love Paper Trey papers but they don't make black! If you know of a great, heavy, smooth black cardstock, please post away in the comment section! Anyway, I also used the fun September kit from Create My Keepsake. I love all of the Pink Paislee goodies in this kit. Yum! For a list of products that I used for this card, look here.
Next, I created a masculine card. I don't create masculine things very often since I am surrounded by girls. Well, except for my precious husband and our three male dogs. :) Anyway, I used the Unity Lily Pad Playland set for this card. The 'enjoy' sentiment comes from the Unity Birds of a Feather set. I used Diamond Glaze, Stickles, and Pop Glue Dots for a little added fun on the card. If you want to see a complete list of products I used, click here.
And if you have made it through my ramblings this far, then great! Because now you get to see the fun news! For anyone that leaves a comment here today, you will be entered in a drawing to win one of two RAKs that I am giving away today!!! You must post a comment by 6 a.m. CST tomorrow (Friday). That should give all of you night owls plenty of time to post. :) Here is what you can win:

Amy Butler fabric brads, Amy Butler 3-d stickers, and a Unity Becoming Butterfly single.
Or a 6x6 Basic Grey Ambrosia paper pad and a Unity Everlasting Romance single.

Let's see those comments! I will announce the winners on Friday sometime! :) Now, to see all of the amazing Unity specials for today and the new releases, be sure to see Angela's post on the Unity blog! I hope you will bring a friend with you today because there are more opportunities for freebies if you do! Now, for more fun and to possibly find that Unity blog candy, "hop" on over to Jen's fun blog! Happy Hoppin'.

Hi Patter, both your cards are so pretty but I especially love the pond one , so shimmery!

I use Bazzill's smoothie in Blackberry Swirl to stamp on. I have just discovered it as I thought being called blackberry it would actually be dark purple, but no, it's black! Funny eh? I wonder who thinks up the names??


Thank-you for such a great giveaway, the butterfly saying is definately on my wish list!
