together we can...

Hello Hello!

Today is Tuesday which means it is the Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge!


We want to thank Karen Giron who is our October Guest Sketch Artist...her Sketch Challenges have been soooo fun and inspiring!

Check out this week's sketch!


I used Skipping Stones Design's Grunge and Cancer Schmancer for my card today!  Just a reminder that through Friday, for every Cancer Schmancer set that is sold, Skipping Stones Design's will donate $4 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation...Come on peeps...together we can make a difference...which brings me to today's card:


Yes, you're at my blog...not my typical color combo...subtle and soft...but I think it makes the butterfly and the sentiment really take the stage, whaddya think?

All the patterned paper is Cosmo Cricket Wanted...the kraft/button is ala PTI...the ribbon is from my fab friend Sherry {she sells the gorgeous stuff too!!}...I grunged it up with my Memento Rich Cocoa pad...

Check out my double-decker butterfly...can you tell that it has been stamped on thee prettiest shade of blue paper from the Wanted pad?


You probably didn't even notice but there isn't a smidge of stitching on this puppy...shocking, right?!  Well, when I was putting this card together there was a horrible windstorm pounding my windows and the power was sketchy...I didn't know if the power was going to go out on me so I didn't take the chance of using my trusty Janome:)

**Be sure to check out the Paper Crafts Facebook page for a Skipping Stones Design Give-a-Way!!**

I hope that you'll join us in the Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge!

You won't wanna miss the fabbie goodness from the other gals on the Skipping Stones Design Team:
