happy holidays..


{This is post #1 of 2 for today...Please make sure you check out my TORENDI post HERE}

Welcome to the Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop to celebrate the release of two new sets, Sentiment Frames #1 and Brrrthday! Today the DT and Guests of SSD will be featuring cards using Sentiment Frames #1. If you've just happened upon my blog today, make sure to start from the beginning at Skipping Stones Design.

You should have arrived here from Skipping Stones Design blog!!

Combined with the blog hop today, it's also Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday which means we're showcasing another great creation from our Guest Sketch Artist this month, Maile Belles.

We'd love for you to play along with the sketch and link your card at the Skipping Stones Blog. A free stamp set is up for grabs to a lucky winner that joins our sketch challenge!

Here is today's Challenge Sketch by our December Sketch Artist, Maile Belles:


So many possibilities, right?!  It is perfect for the Skipping Stones Design Feature set, Sentiment Frames:

Isn't it a gorgeous image?  This particular frame I used on my card is wonderfully ornate.  ALL the Skipping Stones Design images stamp wonderfully crisp & clean.

My color combo was inspired by Cupcake Creations Color Combo:


I really love designing non-traditional colored holiday cards...I'm also linking to Paige's Cards Challenge:
