Hip Hop Thursday!

Happy Hip Hop!!!!  I haven't created anything in a couple of days, as I had a few things happening that kept me away from my desk.  I have been dealing with allergies for the first time in my life and I tried some medicines, but they just put me to sleep, so I gave up on them, but have not been having fun, as I keep coughing and wheezing and having runny nose from time to time.  I have a friend, who is going to see a Dr. tomorrow with the same symptoms I have, and I will find out what they tell her. Right now we have no insurance, but thank goodness, that is about to change! Anyway, that is why you haven't seen much from me these past couple of days.

But today it's Hip Hop and I have to have a card, right??? So I made this little card with my newest favorite tool the Corner Chomper. I have been looking for a new corner rounder punch, as the Creative Memories just wasn't doing a good job lately and everyone has been raving about the Corner Chomper, so I have been looking online to see if I can get a great deal..and boy, did I get a great deal at Overstock.com. It was only $18.99 and the day I ordered mine, shipping was only $1. Now that is one awesome deal in my book and it finally arrived Tuesday and I have been chomping corners with it, just for the heck of it..LOL...and I now know why people have raved about it.

Anyway here is the card I made for today.


What do you think of my stamped background???  I really love the way it turned out as those flower stamps were begging to be used as a background.  I see an amazing layout with a stamped background paper like that, too...don't you??  Oh, and the ribbon is the same seam binding ribbon I used to make my crinkled ribbon, but this one is naked...LOL...and it's really pretty as plain white, too.

Well, hope you like my little card and will enjoy all the eye candy from the Hip Hop and don't forget to stop by Splitcoaststampers today.  We are going to chat and give away prizes, it should be fun!

Well, that is all I have for you..so now hop on over to see what gorgeous creation Karen has for you!



Have a fabulous day!.
Hugs,

I am so glad you said you stamped that b/g paper...'cause even though I have that set, I was thinking...what paper pack is that from?!!! AMAZING work Eva! Hope you get better soon...but if you keep getting the wind (like us in AZ), the allergy thing keeps coming and going for me! Drink lots of fluids and water!
