Skipping Stones Designs and Scor-Pal Blog hop



Hello, friends! Today Skipping Stones Design is excited to be releasing another BEAUTIFUL stamp set! It is called Beautiful Botanicals and it is a must have!!! And, even better, Skipping Stones has joined up with the fabulous Scor-Pal team for an amazing blog hop! The hop will begins at the Scor-Pal blog and will finish off at the Skipping Stones blog! If you came from Katie Tate's blog you are already on track! If no, you may want to hop on back to Scor-Pal to join in on ALL the fun!

Don't forget to leave comments! Skipping Stones Design will be giving away one stamp set to a lucky winner and Scor-Pal is giving away a Scor-Buddy, so there is lots to win!

Here's this weeks sketch by Angi Barrs.


And here's my take on it.  My dear friend loves this color combo, and I know she's having a rough time right now, so I had her in mind when creating this card.   I stamped the flowers in ColorBox's Banana Custard, and rolled them a bit in Canary pigment inks.  The strips of yellow cardstock are embossed with the Spellbinders ES-004 Whimsy M-Bossablities




And just in case you didn't get to see this on the Skipping Stones Designs blog yesterday, here's another card using the new Beautiful Botanicals set. 


Now it's YOUR turn! Join in the sketch challenge this week by creating a card using the featured sketch and link up to the Skipping Stones site for your chance to win FREE stamps! You don't have to use Skipping Stones Stamps, but we love when you do! Do you have a Scor-Pal or Scor-Buddy? We would love to see you rocking those, too!!! We ask that you don't combine the challenge with more than five total in your post (including SSD) and please link back here! Have fun! Your next stop on the hop is Jennifer Ingle's blog!

A HUGE thank you to Scor-Pal for providing Scor-Buddies to the Skipping Stones Design Team! We LOVE THEM!!!!
