warm wishes...

 Hello and welcome to the Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge!


Today starts a new month of challenges...Maile Belles is our Guest Sketch Artist!  Check out today's sketch:


Many of you know that Funny Coffee Vol. #1 is my favorite Skipping Stones Design Set...

Such a versatile set...I teamed up the 'to go' cup with a 'warm wishes' sentiment:)  You might not be able to tell, but I do have double decker Basic Grey stars on my card...a couple years ago I bought the BG Chippie set after Xmas for cheap and then promptly forgot about it....well, I was diggin' around for something else and came across them...bonus that they are self-adhesive.  I used the adhesive side to glitter:)

All the paper is October Afternoon, I have a ZVA flourish, Making Memories alpha stickers and Martha glitter...festive, right?  On Sunday I got together with a bunch of my non-crafty friends.  Each gal received an Eco-Card from me..I give them a Christmas card that I made, like today's...I don't write inside them or on the outside of the envy so that they can turn around and send it on:)  Seems kind of impersonal but this has been a *big hit*.

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

Great Sketch and Beautiful card. Love the papers and the bling mixed with that cup of joe.

You could always write on a post it note and stick it inside the card then they could remove the post it and regift the card.
