Tweet Birthday


September has flown by, and here we are already at the last Tuesday of the month, which means my time as sketch designer for Skipping Stones Design is sadly coming to an end. Sniff, sniff ... always sad to say goodbye :(  But it's been another fun month, and so along with the last sketch, I also have a giveaway! More on that in a bit.

Here's our sketch this week:


For lots of sketch inspiration and to link up your entry, head over to this post at SSD! Hope you'll play along!

My sample features a beautiful bird and sentiment from Everyday Blessings, an absolutely gorgeous set. When my new Spellbinders dies arrived a few days ago, I was thrilled to find that Michelle at Stamper's Dream had tucked in some of Prima's beautiful, new Londonerry papers. I wasted no time cutting into those! (Thanks, Michelle!) Details include distressing, chunky bling, stitching, and wide striped ribbon for some drama.

I bet you're wanting me to get to the giveaway, so I'll waste no time there either. Up for one lucky commenter is ...... {drum roll} .....


...  Bras, Volume #1 !!! All you have to do is leave a comment! Deadline is this Thursday, 11:59 pm EST. Winner announced Friday. Good luck!

{Update: A winner has been chosen ... Heidi of Heidi's Happenings. Congrats!!}
