oh sheesh, it's Monday & I'm late with my hip hop post!

Seriously, I had a crappy weekend! Lost my mojo b/c I worked both Saturday & Sunday!!! Found half of it last night in my attempt to create the following cards! I'm so sorry I'm late in posting this morning - I also had to grab some groceries after dropping Tolla off at kindie cuz well, we had like no food in the house!
This first card is for Michelle whose last day is today at ippity!! She is an amazing woman & so inpsiring. I remember when I first signed up to be an ippity chick you could just feel the sincere excitement she felt with me. So, Michelle, thank you for all that you've done for ippity & I wish you great success in the next venture in your life! I felt this sentiment was fitting - one of my favorite ippity sets is this collection of great quotes.

My 2nd card I made for Tiddly Inks birthday challenge. I absolutely LOVE this cupcake with the skully & think it will brighten up anyone's day. I also followed this weeks Taylored Expressions sketch as when my mojo is no where to find, I desperately needed a sketch!!!

So, that's it for today. I hope to find my mojo underneath something today as I clean & iron. I think maybe a messy house has sapped it away. And my hubby is gettin' kinda tired of heading to work in wrinkled shirts. Hehe
I have to give a big shout out to my friend Eulanda for changing my old outdated 2 column blog to the hip new 3 column!! yeah yeah, I know I'm a bit behind in the times but hey, do ya love it?! I know I do!!! And I just love the new background from Cutest Blog on the Block - I may never design my own blog again! haha

Hi Carisa,

What a pretty card the first one and then I really had to laugh about the second one! what a funny combination! And I immediately had to think of my colleague Tara, who's just this kind of combination. She has many many tattoo's and looks kind of tough, but she had the cutest dollies and pink things and is a very, very caring person! Love that contrast!

Hugs,
Wendy
