Welcome to the September Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop! I'm so glad you stumbled on by! If you came from Wendy's blog you are already hopping along, YAY! If not, feel free to jump on back to Skipping Stones Design to get started and check out all of the fabulous inspiration!
We have another GREAT sketch from Amy this week! And we also have a SUPER CUTE release today!!! Here is the card I created using the brand new Holiday Cats set and the sketch for the challenge this week.
HA! I love it!!!! The papers are Crate Paper and My Mind's Eye. I stamped the image in Momento ink and colored with Tombow markers. The ribbon is, of course, May Arts and those tiny gem stones are Making Memories.
Okay, so here's the thing. I am SO not a cat person. I have two black labs and they are the bestest little girlies in the wholest widest world, but I don't so much do cats. Why? Well, primarily because they try to kill me. No...really. I'm horribly allergic to the little things and I'm not talking a little watery eyes, here, folks, I'm talking, BIG TIME. I actually tried to hide one in the basement once when I was little with the help of my older cousin who was living with us at the time. We kept the kitten in a playpen and she used her own allowance money to buy food. As it turns out, my allergy is a direct genetic result of my DAD'S allergy to cats...yeah...he was pretty miserable until they finally heard the "meowing" from the basement a couple of days later. Oooopsies!!!! HA!
BUT...that being the case, I love this stamp set and I totally was having fun with it, so I decided to create another super fun card with it!
The folks over at CAS-usal Fridays issued a super fun fall card challenge that had to include paper piecing! Well, it just so happens that paper piecing is one of my all time favorite techniques, so, needless to say, I just jumped right in head first!
So, that's what I have for you today! Your next stop on the hop is the fabulous Cristina! You know, just that girl who is so crazy talented that she recently won the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol contest. Yeah, just her. LOL! SO GO AND VISIT HER!!!! I have included the full list below in case you get lost along the way! Have fun hopping and don't forget to check out the sketch over at Skipping Stones and join in this week for your chance to win free stamps!
