Always Here - SSD Blog Hop

Welcome to Skipping Stones Design’s Blog Hop to celebrate the release of a new stamp set, "Always Here". If you just happened upon my blog today, you’ll want to go back to the beginning at Skipping Stones Design. You should have arrived from Dina's blog if you are following the hop. But, if you just wanted to stop by and say Hi! That is, of course, fine, too! 'Cause you guys know I love it when you stop by to say hi and stuff! Just say'n.

Combined with the blog hop today, it's also Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday which means the Design Team is showcasing another fabulous sketch from Maren Benedict! We'd love for you to play along with the sketch and link your card at the Skipping Stones Blog. Just remember to use the keywords SSD040 if you are uploading to any online galleries and link it up over at the SSD blog!

Here is the card that I created for this week! I started with the brand new Always Here stamp set and a file folder and boy was I thrilled with the results!

I'm Alwyas Here...

I used the smaller butterfly in the set three times and stamped the sentiment over on the tab. I choose a fabulous satin ribbon as my background to the butterflies combined with a subtle ivory patterned ribbon. And added a few paper flowers as a finishing touch!

I used Platinum stickles to add the sparkle and I LOVE that!!! It is so fabulously luxurious!


I can't even TELL you how good it feels to be playing with paper and such again! *phew!* I love making stuff!
