Skipping Stones Blog Hop and Sale!

Welcome to Sketch Challenge 76 and the much anticipated release of Shoes! If you just came from Wendy's blog, you are in the right place.  If you just happened upon my blog today you’ll want to 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.

Be sure to hop along and leave comments on all the fabulous designers blogs.  This month we are welcoming the wildly talented Danielle Flanders and Wendy Price to our team as Guest Designers! Danielle will be providing all the fabulous sketch inspiration this month. Take a look at our fun challenge his week!

SSD76The winner of this week's sketch challenge will win a shiny new SSD Stamp set so make sure you play along!

Shoes is an awesome set to pair up with Birthday Purses and I can’t wait to put those two together! For today I did a monochromatic card in purples for one of my good friends! The sentiment fits perfectly for her and she loves purple! ;)

The card is a 5x5 and the base is Eggplant, with a Plum center. I had a really hard time with this sketch and instead of doing individual squares around the border, I created the border with the shoes! Seriously love these fun shoes in the set and I can’t wait to color them on another card!

You’re next stop on the hop is to Barb! I'm sure she has such a fun card waiting for you!

Before I go though, you definitely want to read this next part!

It’s a buy 3 get 1 FREE sale! Type in the code ONEFREE and you will get one free after buying three! Now, if you’re having problems with the shipping or if you have trouble using the coupon, you can email Heather (madebyme33@hotmail.com) to get your order in! One cool thing, you can also DOUBLE the offer (or even TRIPLE) meaning you buy six sets you get two free, and if you buy nine sets you get three free! That’s over a $45 savings and a great way to get those stamps on your ever growing wish list! :)

Happy hopping and shopping!

purple is one of those colors that I shy away from, but I LOVE how you've used it! I may just have to reach for the purple cardstock and use it a bit more after seeing how gorgeous you made it look!
