Friday Fun #26 with a Hip Hop Hangover

Happy Friday! Yesterday we had so much fun Hip Hopping in the Unity Forum! Everyone shared their baby and childhood pictures. I thought I would share this family picture with you today. As some of you may know, I recently lost my Mom. To me, she was the BEST Mom in the whole world. This is what she had to work with: My sister (who is also deceased), me (I am about 6 here), My Brother, My Great Grandmother, and that handsome guy is my Dad! We were quite a handful but she managed to keep all of us in line....somewhat. ;)


This week for the Friday Fun Challenge Kimme is going to be our hostess! Actually, she will be hosting every Friday in April. She's got a bunch of great challenges lined up for us, but I am only going to tell you about this week's challenge now. ;) No cheating! Here is our challenge:
April 3-Spring Garden-The bulbs in my garden are beginning to bloom. Spring is in the air! This week create a card using your floral stamps. Even if you aren't a flowery person we all have a couple in our stash

I am ready for Spring so this challenge is perfect for me! I used Unity's March Kit of the Month for this card. I just love this flower. I also went a little crazy with the colors, but like I said before, I am ready for Spring! The patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket- it was just so much fun to play with! I also used Amber's fabulous sketch from the Unity Forum this week: USCSC18

Be sure to check out the rest of the Friday Fun Girls' cards and play along with us too! Use Keyword FFC26 when uploading to SCS! Have a great Friday!

Your card is beautiful!!! And what a cutie you are in that picture!!! I'm sorry about your mom, my sympathies are with ya... We're going through something similar with my MIL and Cancer... the evil C-word! I hope your recovering well. I've been reading up on all sorts of stuff.
