Pumpkin Seed Sentiments Release Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop to celebrate the release of Pumpkin Seed Sentiments! If you've just happened upon my blog today, make sure to start from the beginning at Skipping Stones Design. You should have arrived here from Jennifer Ingle's blog.

Combined with the blog hop today, it's also Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday which means we're showcasing another great creation from our Guest Sketch Artist this month, Lea Lawson. We'd love for you to play along with the sketch and link your card at the Skipping Stones Blog. A free stamp set is up for grabs to a lucky winner that joins our sketch challenge!


Here's the sketch we used this week, lots of room to show you Pumpkin Seed Sentiments!

It has been such wonderful weather here in Utah that I had to go with some bright and fun colors for today! It's supposed to be stormy by Thursday, but I will take the sunny weather while we have it!



Although you can't quite see the stamping on the snaller butterflies, I've used all three of the background stamps that you'll find in this set - one on the orange butterflies, one on the yellow, and the last one on the main image panel in turquoise. The sentiment is also from Pumpkin Seed Sentiments.



I don't know about you, but I feel like I am always in need of more "Thank You" cards in my stash, and I'm sure this cheery little number will totally brighten someone's day!

You're next stop on the hop is to Angela Thomas!

A master list is posted below if there are any stops along the hop.

Have a great day!
