Happy Hip HOP!!!

I can’t believe it is SEPTEMBER!!!
September folks.  Before you know it, Christmas will be around the corner! ACK! Ha.
Well, good thing Unity released a new kit of the month called {all seasons}.

It has everything you need to get you through fall, Thanksgiving and to be prepared for CHRISTMAS!  I suppose it is about that time I start stocking up on my cards to send out this year.  So you will be seeing some holiday cards in the near future.

But for today, I have a different holiday in mind.

Yip, that LOVE day.  I haven’t shown the hubby this card either!  So this might be his valentine for next year.  Ha.  We’ll see.  All the images came from this month’s kit!!!  Awesome stuff, right?

Wanna know where I got my inspiration???  Well, I’ll tell you and then you can get some inspiration as well!!!  Because we have a new KOM sketch challenge starting TODAY!!!


Super fun sketch right? The PRIZE is huge…
A FREE kit of the month PLUS 100 Unity stamps!
Amazing, right?

    Hi Lisa,

    I really like your card, lovely soft colors and I love ‘mailing’ stamps and details, so this is just perfect!! Great sentiment! Reminds me of the movie Grease instantly, but my mum was crazy about that, so I did see that one very, very often, ha ha! We go together… like rabalabalaba-kadinkikadinkadong…. 😀

      Haha, Wendy! That is super funny. I LOVED Grease!!! I watched it on my own like every other day! Ha.

    Argh, you said the “C” word….{insert crafty anxiety attack here}
    Love the way you’ve stamped the background with the cancellation marks – and fabulous layout 🙂

    Great, now I’m going to have that Grease song stuck in my head 😉 I cannot believe you’re making Valentine’s card for 2012–you’re so on the ball! I LOVE your take on the sketch. The repeated postage marks to make a wavey background…love it!

    This card is absolutely beautiful, Lisa! I love the black and white with the touch of colour. Using the cancellation stamp as the background diagonal in the sketch works perfectly!
