Hip Hop Hangover...even though I didnt hip hop much

Good Morning!
I hope you checked out Hip Hop Thursday for Unity on SCS yesterday!! Angela went live two times yesterday straight from Unity Headquarters!!! So awesome! She is so sweet and generous!

There was two hip hop card challenges posted during Hip Hop yesterday and I didnt get to play yesterday so here are my cards today. One was a bling card..dew drops, rhinestones, etc. The other was a 2 layer Christmas card, a base and one other layer. I added a little white layer behind my red one so I cheated a little.
Head over to Angela's blog to see the list of HHH participants! Angela made a stamp set all herself! It is soo cute! Click the Unity link on the right hand side of my sidebar and go look at the Unity Stamp Company, look under products, then new releases!
Better post this now!

never think sung by Rob Pattinson

I should never think What's in your heart What's in our home So I won't You'll learn to hate me But still call me baby Oh love So call me by my name And save your soul Save your soul Before your to far gone Before nothing can be done I'll try to decide when She'll lie in the end I ain't got no fight in me In this whole damn world So you hold off She should hold off It's the one thing that I've known Once I put my coat on I know its all wrong She standing outside holding me Saying oh please I'm in love I'm in love Girl save your soul Go on save your soul Before it's too far gone And before nothing can be done Cause without me You got it all So hold on Without me you got it all So hold on Without me you got it all Without me you got it all So hold on Without me you got it all Without me you got it all So hold on

Paramore - decode lyrics

How can I decide what’s right, when you’re clouding up my mind? I can’t win your losing fight all the time. Not gonna ever own what’s mine, when you’re always taking sides. But you won’t take away my pride. No, not this time. Not this time. How did we get here, when I used to know you so well? But, how did we get here? Well, I think I know how. The truth is hiding in your eyes, and it’s hanging on your tongue. Just boiling in my blood. But you think that I can’t see what kind of man that you are; if you’re a man at all. Well, I will figure this one out on my own. (I’m screaming, “I love you so.”) On my own. (My thoughts you can’t decode.) How did we get here, when I used to know you so well? (Yeah.) How did we get here? Well, I think I know how. Do you see what we’ve done? We’ve gone and made such fools of ourselves. Do you see what we’ve done? We’ve gone and made such fools of ourselves. How did we get here, when I used to know you so well? (Yeah, yeah, yeah!) Well, How did we get here when I used to know you so well. I think I know... I think I know... There is something I see in you. It might kill me. I want it to be true.
