Skipping Stones Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Skipping Stones Design Blop Hop sponsored by Skipping Stones Design. Angela was sweet enough to extend an invitation to the Splitcoast DD/DDA to participate in this month's hop and after I saw her ADORABLE stamps I signed up! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Skipping Stones Design. You should have arrived here from Sweet Latisha's blog!
I got to play with the NEW, NOT-YET-RELEASED set called "Coffee Vol. 1" and it is SO CUTE and totally ME! Seriously, this is what I look like in the morning, lmbo!

Isn't she so cute? I colored her with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol! I stamped the large coffee cup in versamark on the card base but it's kinda hard to see it in the picture:( I love the sentiment! It's my motto, lol!

Well I'm sorry I don't have more to share with this fun set, but I just got it in the mail today and I have strep throat so I'm not feeling very mojo-rific right now;)
Okay! Off you go to Peggy's Blog for your next round of eye candy! Along the way, the Skipping Stones Design Team will have blog candy for you to enter. As an added bonus, there will also be 4 stamp sets (new stamp sets not yet released) hidden along the hop, but we’re not telling you where so be sure to leave some love as you hop!!! Make sure you leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!! The winners will be announced on Friday January 8th at Skipping Stones Design.

Along with all THAT, the Skipping Stones team sent me "Blocks and Borders-Swirls " to give away as blog candy today! So leave a comment here and tell me what your favorite SSD stamp set is and I'll draw a name on Friday for the lucky recipient!

I loved your card. Boy did I feel like this this morning. I really don't know what my favorite SSD is. I just heard about them and I've loved everyone I've seen so far. I especially love the butterfly one and all of the borders. I'm actually new in the stamping world so this is lots of fun. Thanks for the inspiration.

Love the crazy card. I hate it when my hair looks like that every morning, noon & night. I personally don't drink coffee so I guess I get my caffeine from CHOCOLATE. God bless!

Cindy said...

I am new to the stamping world, so I don't know that I have a favorite yet. I love this blog hop so I can see lots of variety. Maybe I will win and this will be my favorite "first" stamp!!!! I do love the donuts I keep seeing. They are fun.
