congratulations!

Happy Tuesday!  It is the Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge!

This is the last week for our July Guests, I've really enjoyed having them as part of the team...check out Kim Kesti's sketch for this week:


Here is how it inspired me:

I played with my hugely neglected Pink Paislee Queen Bee goodies....isn't that sentiment just perfect for the sketch challenge?!



Actually, my card was going to be a Happy Birthday card but I set down the Happy Birthday sentiment on my work top...ugh, what was I thinking?!!!!!  When I do my mega crafting marathons, my area looks like a tornado has ripped through it...so, instead of taking the time to look for it {are you neat freaks cringing now?!}, my card became a Congratulations card...just so you know, I found the Happy Birthday...LOL.

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


Make sure you check out our July Guest Designers, we loved having all of you!!!
