Skipping Stones Blog Hop


Welcome to another  Skipping Stones Design Blog  DT  Blog Hop to celebrate the release of two new stamp  sets ~  Birthday Donuts and Whispering Wings.  If you just happened upon my blog today, you’ll want to go back to the beginning at Skipping Stones Design. You should have arrived from Ashley Cannon Newell’s blog.

Combined with the blog hop today, it’s also Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday which means the Design Team is showcasing another great Sketch creation from Kimberly Crawford.

And here’s my card for using Kimberly’s Sketch:



The donut and sentiment on this card are from the new Birthday Donuts stamp set.   The dp used is from the My Mind’s Eye Quite Contrary Collection.   I added some Diamond Glaze to the donut to, hopefully, look like real frosting!

We’d love for you to play along with the sketch. Just remember to use the keywords SSD020 if you are uploading to any online galleries or link your card at the Skipping Stones Blog. We’ll be looking soon for Guest Designers so you never know….

Thanks for stopping in today ~ your next stop  for the hop is Chelsea Van Wyk
