Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop and New Release!!

 

ssdsketch3bloghop

Welcome to the Skipping Stones Design Sketch Challenge 89 and the release of Everyday Blessings! If you just came from Tamera’s blog, you are in the right place. If you just happened along my blog today, start at the beginning of the hop at Skipping Stones Design. The entire hop order is there and you can hop from blog to blog with ease. Today’s beautiful set inspired me to create another one of my favourite stamped backgrounds on kraft.  I used 2 different colours to stamp the leaf image, then went back with brown and stamped the smaller leaf image.  As you all know, I don’t colour (yes, a teacher that doesn’t colour!) so I paper pieced this gorgeous bird using some lovely Sweet Threads dp.  I love this sketch!! It looks like an old Polaroid photo! LOL  All that lovely space at the bottom is the perfect place for any one of the sweet sentiments in this set :)
