Distressing Hip Hop Hangover

It's Friday! That means Hip Hop Hangover!
I did NOT get to play at all yesterday just chat! :( I was too busy working on Christmas stuff! BUT school was canceled today due to ICE! Nothing like last year as we still have power YAY, but no school! So this morning I was able to play and create something. I used yesterday's distress challenge! I love distressing things!!! I also needed a break from Christmasey stuff and came up with this

Last Saturday when I was over at Katy's I stamped a BUNCH of images from her different Unity sets - we had fun swapping sets and images!!! I LOVE this sentiment! It is from the October Kit of the Month. If Angela (the genius behind Unity and all around awesome gal) ever makes it into a large sentiment I will be first in line! I KNEW I had to use my new MUSIC cuttlebug embossing folder with this sentiment! I ran it through on Kiwi Kiss and then sponged some Black ink on it to make it stand out more. I punched the sentiment out using my blue marvy oval punch and then sponged the edges with Basic Black ink. I then matted it on a Baja Breeze piece that I punched out using my purple marvy scalloped oval punch. I then paper pierced around the oval and then did a little design in each one of the scallops three around the edge and one in the middle. I then added the black layered flower, it's from doodlebug that I still had in my stash. The rhinestone brad in the center added some bling and matched really well! I thought it still needed something so I added the black organza ribbon (of course you know I can barely make a card without ribbon!) Tied a nice little bow and viola! Did you notice I FINALLY used some of this year's IN colors? I needed a color scheme and so I went with this weeks SCS color challenge only I thought it was Basic Black but it was really Basic Grey. I am still not crazy about them!
Here is a close up of the sentiment
and my paper piercing.
If you didn't check out hip hop yesterday you simply MUST go visit the Unity BLOG today and check out all the specials Angela has for us! There are some sets that are retiring and 50% off specials!!! Apparently Angela and the unity gang have some BIG changes planned for 2009. From what I have seen of Unity I can say with certainty that I am sure they will be nothing
short of fabulous!!!!! I can't wait to see what is in store for 2009! I am sad that there will be no hip hop for the next two weeks but am glad that the Unity team will have time to spend with family and friends and knowing Angela be working hard on things for 2009 and CHA! Don't forget to visit the Unity forum on SCS found HERE and join me in 2009 for a new year of Hip Hoppin!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
