Birthdays are like...


Hello and welcome to the Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge!

We are so fortunate to have the fabbie Amy Sheffer as our Guest Sketch Artist for the month of January:



The Skipping Stones Design Team is highlighting the very fun release of Birthday Purses:


Now how fun is that?!!! Seriously...I may have a 'thing' for purses...bags...wallets....I blame in on the fact that I have a size 3.0 {kids} size foot so I can't stock up on shoes..HA..

Okay, okay...here's my take on the sketch:


I used the wonderful Wanted line by Cosmo Cricket....I knew that I 'wanted' to paper piece that particular purse in a camel color...the bow is actually a pretty shade of blue that matches the Making Memories bloom that I distresses with Memento Rich Cocoa...topped off with a PTI button and Kaisercraft pearl....

Sheesh, can you believe it...I even prettied up the interior:



LOL...I just love Skipping Stones Design humor...cracks me up e-v-e-r-y-t-i-m-e!  I stitched and popped on some vintage Prima blooms and some more pearls...gotta love pearls....

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

    I remember when the Wanted line came out many years ago. I LOVED it and have been hoarding it ever since, LOL. You use dit beautifully here Amy. The inside is just as stunning as the out.
    I don't carry a bag/purse/pocketbook. Just my wallet. A big wallet, but just a wallet.

  25. Ha! That card cracks me up, girlie! It's SOOOOOO true! LOL!
    I'm not sure what size foot I'd be over there but I'm a 4 over here which means I'm sometimes in kids' shoes myself (and always falling over too - but I think that has nothing to do with shoe size but clumsiness!)
    Hugs,
    Aimes
