And Hip Hop Brings Back the Mojo

I think this is the first thing I've made this week that I'm really happy with, which is rather odd since I made it really close to the deadline.  It was a challenge to use some sort of unusual ribbon, lace, or trim on your card.  I used some twine with Unity's Eco Chic.  

Lots of fun stuff happened at yesterday's Hip Hop!  Upon Angela's return from CHA she's giving away 23 prizes for people who participated in the blog hop.  There was a new release and a sale lasting through Feb 1.  Also, lots of talk about getting over fear of rejection and submitting to magazines and design teams.  So, I submitted one card to Paper Crafters yesterday.  Yikes!  And today, I need to apply for some DTs, my pal AJ told me I had to.

    And you definitely should apply for mags and DTs. You're very creative!

    Good luck! Hmm, you say break a leg to an actress, what do you say to paper crafter??? Run out of ink! Glue yourself to the card! Color outside of the lines! :-)
