Born To Shop! Skipping Stones Blog Hop Day!

Okay...so two simple questions on this fine, damp, Tuesday morning:

1. Do you like cute cards?

2. Do you like free stamps?

If you answered yes (and you sure as HECK better have answered yes) to both of these questions, then folks, I have the post for you today! It's Skipping Stones Release Blog Hop Day!!!

If you came from Wendy's blog, you are already on track, if you just happened to come straight here today, you *might* just want to hop on over to the Skipping Stones Design blog to get started. 'Cause it's gonna rock. Just say'n.

Born to Shop

Yup, folks. It's ALL ABOUT THE SHOES! The newest Skipping Stones set is ALL ABOUT SHOES!!!!! How much do I love that? Pretty much super tons of lots. Just say'n.

Born to shop (close)

My card is created with Echo Park papers, an EK Success Punch, SSD stamps, of course, Tombow Markers, Momento ink, and made-by-me baker's twine. (More on that later, but let's be honest, folks...I NEEDED orange baker's twine for this card and I didn't have any, so I had to make some. Just say'n.)

And, of course the entire sketch was designed by Danielle Flanders, our Guest Sketch Designer for the month of May! You can create a card using the sketch on the SSD blog and by doing so enter to win FREE STAMPS! AND...just in case you don't want to make a card ('cause you are crazy or sump'n) you can also enter to win a set of SSD stamps simply by commenting on today's blog hop!!!!

AND...if that isn't enough, we have an AWESOME sale going on right now, too! Buy THREE sets and get ONE FREE!!!! Just type in the code ONEFREE for your free stamps! Also, the SSD site has had some trouble calculating shipping, if you have any trouble or it appears to be calculating higher than it should, please email Heather at madebyme33@hotmail.com and let her know. She will ship your sets for free.

Oh...and the sale doesn't stop at just three! If you buy SIX sets, you get TWO FREE! If you buy NINE sets, you get THREE FREE!!! So go stock up and SAVE!!!!

Your next stop on the hop is the ever fabulous Brenda!!!

Here's the full order in case you need it! Happy Hopping!

    How did you make your bakers twine? It looks like you twisted two strands together.

  23. L-O-V-E the sentiment on the metal tag, that is so cute! Fabulous coloring on the image too, it's perfect!

  24. You make the bestest cards, Jingle. Happy cards!
    And I don't know the cartridge for the matchboxes, I did it at a shop workroom. It's got boxes on it, if that helps. I would recommend you buy the really matchboxes and use them. They are sturdier, in my experience.

  25. adorable. Love the scallops, and am a HUGE fan of Baker's twine!

  26. love your take on the sketch! Super creative and CUTE!!!
