you make my heart sing...


Welcome to the Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop to celebrate the release of two new sets, Heartsong and Purse Birthday
{it officially starts at 8 am EST}
Today the Design Team and Guests of SSD will be featuring cards using Heartsong. 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 Ann's 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, Amy Sheffer.
 

We'd love for you to play along with the sketch and link your card at the Skipping Stones Blog. A lucky winner that joins our sketch challenge will win either a free stamp set or half off any stamp set in the store!

I  decided to use some older MME paper that I picked up when I was in Montana, it is from their retired Bloom & Grow line:


It's a card packed with colors and patterns...that's how I like them....I added stitching and pearls....here's a close up of the sentiment:


I'm at the end of the hoppin' line....I hope that you had fun...you don't want to miss out on the fabulous cards by the Design Team or by our awesome January Guests!  Wanna check out the hoppin' list?  Hop on over to the Skipping Stones Design blog!
