Again..a very Happy Tuesday to all and welcome to my blog today.  This is the day for Skipping Stones Design Tuesday Sketch, which we stamp tramps have the wonderful oppurtunity to design cards  from the sketches of some of the top designers in the paper crafting industry.  I feel so fortunate to be able to have this kind of fun enjoying my hobby.  This month the sketches are from a super talented gal  I have followed for a long time...Maile Belles! I love her stamping style, and go to her blog for inspiration often.  Her beautiful creations have been published many many times.

This week we have a different sort of sketch to play with...it leaves lots of room for all kinds of creativity...
FUN Huh?......well....trying to be unique in this challenge with the other tramps being sooo very creative, and having a time constraint this weekend left me scrambling a bit.  But I did my signature CAS card and liked how it turned out....
If you follow my blog at all you know I love kraft CS, and buttons and lace.....etc....for this card I used kraft CS, and white, accented with a tish of bright pink....I added bling to the flower and die cut, but it doesn't show much in the pic.  The stamps of course are from SSD...
                                                                          TIMELESS TEXTURES

                                                                                            ALWAYS HERE
I love both these sets!  The background stamps in "Timeless Textures" are so versatile, and the butterflies in "Always Here" so beautiful.  These sets will be go to sets for me over and over.

Once again, don't forget to stop over to the Skipping Stones blog, and see what the rest of the "Stamp Tramps" have created this week.  Also check out the SALE!!  Heather is offering one last pre-christmas sale....and it is a good one!  For every three stamps sets you purchase by midnight December 14th,  you get one of two pre-release sets FREE!!  Either "Birthday Purses" or "Heart Song"....both super cool sets!  Check out the ordering details on the SSD blog to take advantage of this super deal.
