fly free...

This is my post 2 of 2 for today..make sure you check out my The Craft's Meow Preview post HERE..

Can you believe today is the last day of May?  It is going to be June tomorrow peeps...JUNE.

Perhaps it is harder for Washingtonians to realize that it will be June because we are still waiting for our Spring:)

Today is the Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge.  Check out the fab sketch by our May Sketch Artist, Danielle Flanders:
I interpreted the sketch literally and kept it clean and crisp:


The sweet little butterflies are from the Skipping Stones Design Cancer Schmancer set:


I was inspired by the latest CR84FN challenge:



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


We loved having our May Designers this month:

Danielle Flanders -  Guest Sketch Artist
Wendy Price - Guest Designer

Thanks for poppin' by!
