Skipping Stones Sketch Challenge


Happy Tuesday!   Time for a new Sketch Challenge over at the Skipping Stones Design blog.   It’s the final sketch from the awesome Kim Crawford.   And, she has definitely not disappointed us!    Here’s today’s fun sketch:


And here’s my card . . .


I haven’t had breakfast yet and, for some reason, am craving something SWEET!   😀    This “Cupcake Cutie” is from the stamp set with the same name.  


I added some Cotton Candy Stickles to the frosting … mmmmm  looks like sugar!   The DP used for this card is from My Mind’s Eye ~ the pink is from the Abbey Road collection and the green is from Penny Lane.   I added some “sugared”  (now I’m really hungry!) brads in each corner and one on top of the cupcake.

I’m sad to say this is my last card as a Design Team member for Skipping Stones.   I’ve had to rearrange a few things on my schedule which has been over-flowing recently.    But, I will definitely be keeping a close eye on all the new and hilarious stamps that the wonderfully talented and sooooooo very nice Heather produces for Skipping Stones Design!  

Thanks for stopping by today.
