May your coconuts...

Welcome back to another Tuesday with the Stamp Tramps of Skipping Stones Design! Today is another fun sketch and I am so excited to show off the set that I used! One thing you will notice immediately about SSD is that the stamps are humorous and a little bit sassy. I love the set Tropical Birthday and the funny sentiment it contains! There is also a winner of blog candy at the bottom of my post!!

Here is the sketch we were challenged with (and yes I flipped it)! SSD 17

And here is how I interpreted the sketch! The corners made me think of the swirly frames in Tropical Birthday and right away I knew what I wanted to do. Gwynie and I went to Rumbi's for lunch on Saturday, and if you've ever been in there then you know how fun the decor is. I must have been inspired by it, because just looking at this card makes me think of Rumbi's! Probably from the colors and the hemp.

Isn't that sentiment hilarious?! I think my Mom or my Mother in-law would get a kick out of this card! Do you have a friend you could see yourself giving this to? This cracks me up and I can't wait to make a few more cards like this just for fun and to have an extra on hand! (PS - I promise those greens look much closer in real life! I didn't notice until I was typing this all up how off they looked!)

ALSO - last week we had a DT only blog hop, and since my previous winner didn't claim their prize, I will be offering up this cute unreleased stamp set!

Random.org picked #5

Oh what a funny stamp! I know quite a few people this would be perfect for (I come from a family of smart arses). Great card.

This card is adorable! I love their little sayings and you really did give it a tropical feel with your paper and hemp! Too cute!
