Thinking of You

Welcome to the Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop to celebrate the release of Uplifting! 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 Brenda'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, Laurie Schmidlin. We'd love for you to play along with the sketch and link your card at the Skipping Stones Blog!




And here's my take on the sketch with Uplifting! Not sure why the picture looks a little blurred/fuzzy below when it looks fine on my computer!



I used my new Love Notes DSP from SU and added some Fine Linen Distress ink to add an aged look to the vanilla cardstock. Aren't those balloons just dreamy?! There are so many amazing stamps in this set to create a full scene with hills, clouds, flowers and butterflies!


Make sure you go on the full to see all the amazing designs! Now that you've been inspired, pop on over to SSD and link up your Card!
