Hip Hop thursday!!

Hip Hop Hangover


Good Morning, do you have a nice cup of coffee? well good Unity has a whole list of ladies who love hip hoppin, love making stuff, and LOVE UNITY!! woo hoo sounds fun to me!! thats why I have been hip hopping since late july 08!! I really really love Unity!! GUess what too Unity celebrates its one year anniversary in May!! All sorts of fun things are going to be happening I guess!! I will be there!!

Yesterday the theme was babies!! Cute bundles of baby stamps in a bunch, free shipping till sunday, new things happening there at Unity!! Check it out!!! We had fun yesterday most of us found our baby pictures and posted them as our avatars for SCS! Such cute babies they were! Not to say they arent cute now too!!! ;)
So here is me, I think I was younger than a year. I want to pinch my own cheeks!


Check out Splitcoaststampers.com Look for the Unity forum and check us out if you never have before!!

Here is a card I made with Unity this morning. I think I have to explain it a bit so it doesnt boggle your mind, I started thinking of a birthday card for my daughter for November, she will be five then and the numbers from the March KOTM would be perfect so I stamped those and circled the five, I layered the papers distressed, and added the day to remember sentiment, then I was going to use the butterfly from the Feb KOTM then I changed my mind and used the birds instead to represent the four people in our family. Make sense now? :) ok

Stamps Used: March and Feb KOTM
Papers Used: Pink pirouette SU, eva basicGrey
Ink Used: purely pomegranate, pink pirouette, rose romance, chocolate chip SU
Accessories Used: scissors for distressing, pen
Update for my health, I do have graves disease, my doctor wants to treat me medically right now, sounds like I will be back a lot to the endocrinologist. My thyroid is overactive, 2-3 times the normal size of the thyroid. Producing 6 times the amount of hormones I should be. The medicine I was on will be continued, just a higher dose. I am hoping this will work. I could do the radioactive iodine treatment but it puts my children at risk and has a potential to cause hypothyroidism, an underactive thyroid. I think I will stay on the meds for now, I hope they work faster now at a higher dose. Thanks for all the hugs and support and the knowledge that this happens and everyone ends up fine! Big hugs to you all!
Another sad note today is the 8th year my dad has been gone and passed... I knew him for three years of his short 45 year life. He was such a kind man and I loved him with all my heart since the day I knew him. I miss him dearly.
Thanks for joining me this beautiful friday for Hip Hop hangover!!
Till Later!!
