happy {belated} birthday...


Welcome to the Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop to celebrate the release of Green Birthday! 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 Always Inking, Tammie'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, Heidi Blankenship. We'd love for you to play along with the sketch and link your card at the Skipping Stones Blog.  Also, remember to use SSD68 if you post to any on line sites.

Here is our blog hop order:

Now how fun is the new Green Birthday Set?!!!

Check out this week's sketch by Heidi:


Here is what I came up with:


All my paper is from the Pink Paislee Old School line...I simply adore plaid!  I picked up the line from Jenn, who has a Etsy Shop!  You might not be able to tell but, the cake has glitter on it...just a smidge but gives it the right amount of glitz!  The banner is also Pink Paislee, made of canvas.  Sadly, I should always have a stash of belated birthday cards since I tend to be late in sending out peeps' cards!

I wanted to let you know about a BUY 3 GET 1 FREE sale going on right now at Skipping Stones Design! Yup, you heard that right!! Buy three Skipping Stones Design stamp sets and get the fourth one free! How cool is that! Enter 31FREE at checkout to take advantage of this great offer while it lasts!

  25. I gotta be honest, I looked at the sketch but hadn't scrolled down, and my first thought was, Hmmm, how would I incorporate the banner thing with the fancy panel thing below it? Then I scrolled down to greatness, super job on interpreting that sketch, that helps me a ton!!! And...could it be?...yes, more awesome sewingness!!
