Skipping Stones Design Sketch #93 and Holiday Cats Release!

Good morning!  

It's a big day here at Skipping Stones Design!!  A double header of sorts!  Today we are unveiling Sketch 93 by the Amy Sheffer and introducing SSD's newest set, Holiday Cats!  If you just came from Shannon's blog, you are in the right place.  If you just happened along my blog today, start at the beginning of the hop at Skipping Stones Design.  The entire hop order is there and you can hop from blog to blog with ease. 


Be sure to hop along and leave comments on all the fabulous designers’ blogs.  This month we are welcoming Nicole Mullan, Amber Daigre, Cristina Kowalczyk, Vanessa Menhorn and Chan Vuong to our team as Guest Designers! Amy Sheffer will be providing all the fabulous sketch inspiration this month including the sketch we're using in today's hop!


Without further ado, here is this week's sketch: 





Holiday Cats is totally cute!  This set is "purr-fect" for Halloween, Christmas, Birthday and just because.  Putting together this sketch and these stamps, here is my card: 

What's Mew With You?



 I interpreted the layers on the sketch as Polaroid photos tacked to a bulletin board and finished it off with the oh, so punny "What's Mew" sentiment.  The bulletin board is actually made from cork.  I picked up a roll of self adhesive cork at JoAnn's in the bulletin board section.  It's super easy to work with- note the rounded corners- you can also stamp on it, die cut it, etc...

Head on over to Amber's blog for more inspiration! 

Thanks for stopping by!
