Have I mentioned that I love Paper Piecing? How about Hot Air Balloons? And Skipping Stones Design?????

Have I mentioned that I love all of those things super lots and lots? Hmmmm....well, just in case:

Hi, my name is Jingle and I love paper piecing, hot air balloons, and Skipping Stones Design.

There. Now you know. And knowing is half the battle!

(We won't mention that according to GI Joe, who made that phrase known, violence is the other half....just say'n.)

Ummm...yeah. I know. I LOVE that balloon and I LOVE that October Afternoon Paper!!! It is, of course, from the ever fabulous Uplifting set over at SSD. This is quickly becoming a favorite of mine! (Shh! Don't tell Healing Wings that I'm cheating! Just say'n. That could get ugly.) I love how pretty the sentiments are in this set, too! I framed the balloon image with fancy bracket thingies (yes, of COURSE that is what they are officially called!) from the beautiful and terribly useful Sentiment Frames set. I kinda love both of these sets.

The beautiful sketch was created by Kim Kesti. *Love* Just say'n.

AND...seriously, I know I say this a lot, but you HAVE to see what the other Stamp Tramps created! Seriously. There are some REALLY gorgeous cards in the line up this week, so totally check them out because I told you to and you do everything I tell you to do. HA!!!
