It's a Hip-Hop Birthday Celebration!!!

It's another fun day of Hip Hop with the Unity crew! And... the girls are gearing up for a BIG birthday celebration! Unity's birthday is right around the corner, so get ready for a big party April 27th - May 2nd!!! :) Everyone made something 'birthday themed' as part of the pre-celebration, so have fun making your way through the Hop. :) As usual, Angela will post all of this week's news, specials & maybe a few surprises on the Unity Blog.

One thing that I really want to tell you about is an AWESOME new site called "My Unity Place"! This is a website jam-packed full of all things Unity! (galleries, chat forums, videos, tutorials, etc.) Make sure to check it out!

I made a couple of cards this week using images from Unity's Whimsical Birthday set, along with sentiments from April's Kit of the Month.

I added Glossy Accents to the balloons - so they're really shiny and slick in real life. My generic point and click camera just can't pick up details too well. :)

My husband's birthday was this week... so I told him to pick one of these cards and pretend like it was his. He doesn't actually get to KEEP the cards I make for him. I like to save my homemade cards for people who will actually look at the card for more than 2 seconds. LOL! I didn't even write anything on the inside. He's good with it. It works well for both of us. :)

Are you ready for some more Hip Hop fun? Make your way over to see:

  8. SO funny about letting your husband pretend with his homemade card.

    Every card I show my husband that I make he says "Is that for me?"

    Sometimes I surprise him and say "Why, YES, it is".

    He is so funny about it too - like a squirrel and stores them away in a keepsake box. Sometimes I think he's part girl!

  19. Your post made me laugh. haha. I never send cards to guys that I made unless I know they will appreciate them and only few do. Now my girl friends all appreciate them. Beautiful cards and I LOVE the colors on your first card with the baloons.

  27. LOVE those balloons...thanks for the terrific idea!

  28. Cute cards! I have the same arrangements for my husband, only I write a little message on a post-it note inside the card. He opens the card, reads the post-it note and then hands the whole thing back to me! I do this with my daycare provider too! When I pay the bill, I slip it inside a card. That way she gets a nice card with her payment and she can use it again!

  29. Oh my gosh, your husband is hysterical! Mine actually saves my cards. I was shocked. I thought he threw them out until one day he was cleaning out his desk drawer and I saw all of the cards I had given him. So sweet!

  32. That funny!! I have to admit I have actually "recycled" a card I gave my husband when I needed a card to send to someone else(just cut the front off and added it to a new card) I mean it's still handmade by me right?!?

  38. The spousal unit usually has one of my cards sitting over his computer. He doesn't get to keep them, but he almost always has one of them on display. Husbands are definitely strange creatures!
