good to the last drop...

Welcome to Skipping Stones Design on my blog!


Today we have another Sketch Challenge for you!


For the month of October we have the talented Karen Giron as our Sketch Artist!  I'm a huge fan of her work..


I took her sketch and rotated it...added some Funny Coffee vol. #1:


and Grunge'd it up a smidge:


Here's the end result:)

I was trying to make an attempt to coordinate the paper {umbrellas} with the sentiment {rain}drop..haha...get it?  Oh it's that Seattle humor...coffee...umbrellas...raindrops....the cardbase is pti kraft, the patterned paper is MME and the yellow panel is ala Skipping Stones Design GRUNGE...love that set!

This card has already gone postal to a wonderful bloggie friend, Karen who celebrates her birthday this week....

I hope that you'll join us in the Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge!

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

 
and

The lovely Guest Design Team for the month of October:

Karen Giron - Guest Sketch Artist
