Skipping Stones blog hop (and a prize)


Welcome to the Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop to celebrate the release of Uplifting!

If you've just happened upon my blog today, make sure to start from the beginning at Skipping Stones Design. You should have arrived here from Ann's blog.



Combined with the blog hop today, it's also Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday which means we're showcasing another great creation from our Guest Sketch Artist this month, Laurie Schmidlin. We'd love for you to play along with the sketch and link your card at the Skipping Stones Blog.

A free stamp set is up for grabs to a lucky winner that joins our sketch challenge at the SSD blog!


Here is the hop list for your hopping pleasure!

And, because there is no better time than during a hop to have a prize, I am giving away a SSD set, too!


I have an extra set of the Margarita Birthday. You can win this here at my blog! Just leave a comment for your first chance to win. Play along with the Tuesday sketch challenge this week and get a second chance (just leave a second comment here that you linked up at SSD with your entry). And why not... if you blog about this or Tweet or FB this at all, let me know that for another chance.

You have until Monday night next week to leave these comments and I'll announce a winner next Tuesday.

Thanks for hopping with us, and thanks so much for stopping by my blog!

PS: If you're really into the hot air balloon trend, too, check out the My Beautiful Balloon Challenge in the Moxie Fab World. I am so all about hot air balloons. I love how whimsical it can make a card or project. Play along with, Cath, too!
