snow much fun...

Hello and Welcome to the Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge!

We have a fun event for you today, everyone on the Design team was able to pick one of their favorite sketches and work with any Skipping Stones Design stamp set!

I went with SSD60 by Amy Sheffer:


Aha...you thought I was going to use Funny Coffee vol.#1, eh?  Gotcha!

I used Sassy Snow!


CRACKS me up.

I also added some Pumpkin Seed Sentiments too:


This is what I came up with:


Ahhh....did you notice it?  Not one speck of patterned paper on this card!  That tends to be unusual for me, I love my patterned paper stash'ola.  But the Jingle Belle's Guest Designer Jess, suggested a 'No Designer Paper' Card.   I'm pretty sure that Jess enjoys her Designer paper as much as I enjoy mine...if she can do it, so can I.  Thanks so much for the fun challenge ladies!

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