Happy Birthday!


Good morning!  Well, today is my last hurrah over on the Skipping Stones Design blog :)  I struggled a little with this sketch and put lots of thought into it.  I pictured different shapes for the circles, different paper, different embellishments…but then I thought of bright, fun colours against white.  YUM!  And then some fun stitching…double yum!  I want to thank Kandi and all the wonderful ladies over on Skipping Stones for having me hang out this month :)  I have LOVED working with their stamps and LOVE their heartfelt sentiments and images :)  I hope you’ll get a chance to visit the blog and even play along with this sketch for the chance to win a stamp set of your choice!!  Doesn’t get any better than that!!  Have a wonderful Tuesday :)  Hugs!

Moe, Double yum is right! I love the stitching on the circles...and the bright colors on the white pop off the page! Hard to believe you're done with your guest design spot! This month flew by!

I'd tuck my tail in and run from this sketch, but you have made it work wonderfully. Perfect pops of colour against the white and the stitching is the perfect touch.
