Skipping Stones Design: Thank You Hop!


another busy day on my blog..post 2 of 2...please click HERE for my Timeless Twine post


Hello and Welcome to the Skipping Stones Design Thank You Hop!


You should have arrived here from the Super Stephanie Mino's blog


If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is the Skipping Stones Design blog!

I was asked by Katie Gehrig {thanks Katie!!!} to be part of this fun party to thank Skipping Stones Design owner, Heather, for all her talent.  

For those that follow me, you know how much I LOVE tags.... 


I was totally inspired by THIS card.   Can you tell on my card that the zig zag stitching is with gold thread to go with the gold embossing?

I took the twine off of one of my shipping tags and colored it with a copic market to give it a look of leather.  Can you see the peek-a-boo cork behind the little taglet flag?


The envelope is actually a kraft bag that I trimmed and finished it off with scallop scissors...

I was able to use 2 of my FAV Skipping Stones sets



and



Katie has some Skipping Stones Design Blog Candy...Comments must be received by Sunday, February 3 and will be announced on her blog and the Skipping Stones blog on Monday, February 4.

There is still time to purchase many of the Skipping Stones Design Stamp sets on sale!  Check out the PMS Sale deets HERE.

Now hippety hop over to Cyndi's blog
