SFYTT sponsored by Skipping Stones!

Hello! It's the first Saturday of the month and that means a brand new Sketch for you to try! Yay! I think you are going to LOVE the sketch this month, it was sooo fun to play with!


This month, our sketch is being sponsored by Skipping Stones Designs! I love this company's stamps! I unfortunately do not have any stamps by SSD so I'll be using some Verve, but you gotta check the SSD site out, fabulous stuff in there!


I used some new MME papers, I believe it's the Sunshine collection! I love the colors in this pad and will definately keep it on my desk for a day or 12, lol! The sentiment is a new Plain Jane from Verve, it's called "Nicest Thoughts". I stamped the bird right on the circle element and then stamped it again on the blue polka dot paper and cut out the wing to paper-piece it. The flowers are from Making a Statement. I stamped them on flowers I die-cut using my Loopy Blooms dies. I added some roses to the flower centers and wrapped some twine around the card front.


Check out the rest of the SFYTT sistah's to see what they have up their sleeves!

Jen Del Muro and Guest Alyssa

We also have two NEW sistah's to welcome! YAY!
