Today is all about Hip Hop Hangover and ALONE time!

Happy Hip Hop Hangover! I didn't get to hip hop much yesterday because my computer was acting up and we had a little birthday celebration for my Dad in the evening.
The stamps are from Unity's March KOTM. Get yours while you still can for $24 this month! It is such a versatile set, and I LOVE IT! The card base is kraft, and I CB'd the Ridinghood Red panel and matted with chocolate chip. I paper pieced the trees in kiwi kiss and old olive and the apples were a booger...in riding hood red. I used soft sky to sponge for the sky, and various browns for the ground beneath the tree. I punched my "together" with the word window punch. The buttons were in my red button jar...haven't a clue what company they belong to!
This card is for my hubby. I CHERISH our alone time together. Children are such a blessing, but silence and alone time are golden! Notice there are not three "baby" trees anywhere on the card! LOL! Just two big trees happy in love! This card is all about us!
Hope you all get some special "together" time this weekend with the one you love!

Hugs and Smiles!
