HiP hOpPiNg....Unity blog hop and SALE!




I'm first up on this week's hop and I wanted to share a cute card and menu I made awhile back using one of my first Itty Bitty stamps- 'What's Shakin'

I adore these vintage diner style salt and pepper shakers- many fond memories of me twirling them and eavesdropping on conversations between my Grandma and her friends. Oh they had the BEST juicy stories-  probably ones these little ears shouldn't have heard hee hee!

The card I made was just a small square card I put together quickly to include in a gift bag. After I stamped the images I just added a bit of colour to the hearts to match my papers. I did the same on the stamped images on the menu except I also outlined the shakers in pink as they were sprinkling 'love' on the meal that was being served that night. So corny but I loved it. 

And what's a Hip Hop without a great sale!!


To celebrate the Magnuson's second youngest child turning 15 (and getting his beginner's car license) they are giving you a free gift on all orders over $15. Not only that selected items are marked down to 50% off as they second oldest is #50 on his football team. Love that sale idea! Congrats boys!

**Please note that this sale will begin at NOON CST today**

Next up on today's hop is Eryn!!

Cheers! Andrea
