Rain or shine... (and a winner!)


It's another Sketch Tuesday challenge at Skipping Stones Design. I'm still loving my spot as one of the guest designers for SSD for April. I will be so sad when my term ends next week. Of course, I'll still be playing along for sure!

For this card, I used the new Uplifting stamp set. I just love how easy it is to use paper piercing with the larger hot air balloon stamp. And I used the kissing technique on the smaller balloon so that the red ink would have texture and not just be flat on the background paper.


The background paper is American Crafts and the turtle, sentiment and balloon are Nikki Sivils, in case you were wondering. :)

I also have a winner to announce today! If you left a comment on last Tuesday's post or played along with last week's SSD challenge and let me know that you played along, you were eligible for the Margarita Birthday set. The winner is ... Crafty Math Chick!


Congrats!! Send an e-mail with your shipping address to me at dianadesigns [at] rochester.rr.com and I'll get that set on its way to you this week. Enjoy!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! :) Hope your week is going fabulously so far.
