Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop!



Hello Friends!

Today Skipping Stones Design is excited to be releasing another BEAUTIFUL stamp set!  It is called Beautiful Botanicals and it is a must have!!!  


Skipping Stones has joined up with the fabulous Scor-Pal team for an amazing blog hop!  The hop will begin at the Scor-Pal blog and will finish off at the Skipping Stones blog!  

If you came from Pamela's blog, 



you are already on track!  If not, you want to hop on back to the Scor-Pal blog to join in on ALL the fun!  The entire blog hop list is available on the Skipping Stones blog.

Don't forget to leave comments!  Skipping Stones Design will be giving away one stamp set to a lucky winner and Scor-Pal is giving away a Scor-Buddy, so there is lots to win!

Check out this week's sketch by March Guest Sketch Artist



Here's my take on her oh-so-fun sketch:



I embossed the image from Beautiful Botanicals in gold on vellum...why yes, I am on a vellum kick!  I stitched the panel on alternating strips of MME Lost & Found 2/Sunshine.  Although you can't tell in the photog, the button was loaded up with the same gold embossing powder...I hit it with my heat gun & topped it off with a pearl.  Isn't the font on the Mother's Day sentiment pretty?!

Now it's YOUR turn!  

Join in the sketch challenge this week by creating a card using the featured sketch and link up to the Skipping Stones site for your chance to win FREE stamps!  You don't have to use Skipping Stones Stamps, but we love when you do!  Do you have a Scor-Pal or Scor-Buddy?  We would love to see you rocking those, too!!!  We ask that you don't combine the challenge with more than five total in your post (including SSD).  

Have fun!  

Your next stop on the hop is Kandi's blog


Have fun hoppin'!!!
