Hip Hop Hooray

Happy Hip Hop! Although I'm spending the week on VACATION, I certainly couldn't miss out on the Hip Hoppin' fun, so here are two cards for you today, celebrating the USA and our heroes.

I used the Fun With Four Inches set to create the stripes on this first card, and once again (are you sick of it yet?) the scalloped spot from Birdie Inspiration. I just can't stop using that stamp! It was missing a little something, and then I remembered these little toothpick flags I had tucked away with my cake decorating goodies. I think it was the perfect touch! The foam letters are from the Dollar Spot at Target . . .gotta love it!

On this card, I used Unity's Just My Type alphabet to stamp "my" and the "hero"letters (as well as paper) are from GCD Studios. The star stamp is from Unity's January KOM. I love the distressed polka dot pattern on these stars.
And now, hip hop along to ***Lynn***
