Yippee Skippee, it's Happy Hour!

Yippee Skippee was one of those sentiment stamps I had to have! I had no idea what I would use the silly sentiments for, but somehow I knew they would fit in to my collection. This goofy card all started with a sketch challenge at Create with Connie and Mary.

I started by using my circle framelits (2 3/8" circle), on the top layer, and then paper piercing the edge to give it some interest. At that point I had no idea what I wanted to do, except fill the circle with an image. I grabbed the piece of card stock and started looking at my sets, seeing what would fit best inside the circle. When I came to the "never underestimate the power of two" sentiment, from Yippee Skippee, I knew immediately that I would be embellishing this card with drinks from Happy Hour! I thought it was funny, and Facetimed my sister (also a demo), and she had the idea that I should first have the two drinks and then finish the card (LOL!). Since the power of two drinks for me is about the equivalent of four (or more!) to someone else, I decided to not go in that direction!
