*SHOOT!* I forgot my rant, but I still have a great Skipping Stones Card to Share....Just say'n.

Yup. That's pretty darned random in the way of titles, but you know how I am. BUT SERIOUSLY, folks. For reals. I had a PERFECT blog rant in my head last night. One of those ones that just made wonder and then made me wonder if it made anyone else wonder and then made me wonder if anyone would wonder if I told them about my wonder and... *breath* ... well, you get the idea. It was a good one. But, alas, I have forgotten the topic of said rant entirely, thus leaving me simply ranting about ranting and I'm not sure if that actually works or not. Although, judging by the amount of text already in this post, I might say that it does, indeed, work, but, well...we shall see....*sigh*.

The GOOD news is that I have a SUPER fun Skipping Stones card for you today!!! No. Reallys. It's super fun. Mostly because it is bright and pink and, well, super fun! (Did I mention that yet? Maybe? K? K. Thanks. Just say'n.)


So, it just so happens that the ever fabulous Danielle Flanders is our sketch artist for this month. She rocks. No...really...if you aren't already familiar with her work, you simply MUST check it out. She actually designs for one of the LSS' by me, too, which is rather cool. She doesn't live around here, though, which is a bummer because we could totally hang out. Just say'n. We also have the FABULOUS Wendy Price back with us AGAIN as our Guest Designer! (I know...she willingly came back to play with the Stamp Tramps! That's amazing! HA!! WE love you Wendy!)

So, that's pretty much enough blabber for this morning...here's my wicked cute card!


Congratulations Purse Card


Yup, totally stretched Danielle's Sketch and then used both the Purse Birthday set and the Sentiment Frames set on my card. *LOVE* The paper is all from the Upcycled collection by Cosmo Cricket, which was kindly sent to me by Tammi from My Scraps And More, a new online scrapbook store! I won them on her blog and I LOVE THEM!!!


Purse on Congratulations card


I paper pieced the purse portion to make it absolutely adorable. I think it worked. Just say'n.


Sentiment


The sentiment is stamped directly on the card, which was a little lotta scary, actually, but I love how it turned out. Sometimes, I guess you just gotta take those risks! It's only paper and ink, I mean, really? What's the worst that can happen?

So, that is my super fun card for you today! Don't forget to head on over to Skipping Stones Design to check out what the other Stamp Tramps created AND to take advantage of FREE SHIPPING! Simply enter the code 'freeship' and your stamps will ship for FREE!!!! AND...there *might* be a chance for you all to see this months release a bit early if you head on over there, too! Just say'n.

  10. You are reading my MIND! (That actually should scare you 'cause my mind is goooooofy! LOL!) Seriously, I was just thinking I really want to do something cute for some of the kiddos who work at the McDonald's where I stop for coffee on Tuesdays before grocery shopping! They are SO AWESOME & this is the perfect card! Jen, it's darling, it says JUST the right thing, and IT'S PINK!!!! Love it!!!!

  11. OK so the card is really cute but I want to get back to the rant... I hate it when that happens!!

    I seem to have a larger then usual amount of ranting building up I hope mine doesn't decide to hang with yours in some unobtrusive corner... but then again, maybe mine would scare yours out... 'cause I really am left hoping you think of it 'cause I really love me a good Jingle rant....
