Hip Hop!!!

Happy Thursday, hope it's a good one for you!  It's lovely here in Northern California, although the heat seemed to have followed me from Southern California..hehehe.  But it suppose to cool off and if we didn't have this heatwave, what would I get to talk about, right????  LOL

Anyway, today I have another HAPPY card to share.  Don't know if you noticed, but I didn't participate in the H{ippity} Hop (so, did you miss seeing a card from me???  LOL), so I missed the paint challenge.  Now, you know why I missed the card?  Because I didn't take my Ippity stamps with me to Southern California, so now I get to make up for the challenge card and I even used this week's sketch!  Huh!!!  How is that for a double duty card.

Now, let me talk about the paint I used.  I bought these Twinkling H2O's sooo long ago and while I loved them at the time, somehow I haven't pulled them out in a long time, BUT NO MORE!!!!  NONO...as I just love their shimmer affect and you can use them, as you would use watercolor, so it's super easy to play with.

The way I used it on my card was actually the easiest way ever!  I stamped my flower image on watercolor paper and just painted in, than I cut out my label shape (and I will talk about this shape in a minute, as I KNOW you will want to know what shape it is...LOL), and painted the whole label in with blue Twinkling H2O.  So, here is my little happy card.

Isn't this just pretty????  I really love it the way it turned out and in person it is just so pretty sparkly.  Paper are of course again the cute and adorable Echo Park Papers, that I can't stop using...they just make me happy!

Ok, so before I leave....let me talk about that label shape you see on my card.  Yes, it is Spellbinders and it is a Scrap-Mart Exclusive, called Ovalsquare Label!  Have you seen all the different dies they are coming out with?  OMG, they even have clouds!!!  So, that had me at hello and I just finished a card with it and I will share with you next week, but get ready, as it is super CUTE!

Anyway, that is it for today.  And now head on over to Karen's blog to see what GORGEOUS and AMAZING, JAW DROPPING creation she has waiting for you!!!

Wishing you a cool and happy summer day and a fun Hip Hop!
