A New Challenge!

Hello Everyone!

Can you believe it is the end of August already??  Where did the summer go?  We are back in school already and once again, stamping time is my down time in the evenings.
I love a good challenge and play in as many as I can.  There is a NEW challenge starting up and you can find it on the Skipping Stones Designs Blog.

Our very first challenge is all about Christmas!

Yep, I made a very traditional Christmas card.  The stamp set used is called 'Christmas Labels'.
I stamped the image in black one white cs and and sponged some green ink around the sentiment;  then I stamped over the frame again with Versamark and heat embossed it with gold.  It was then fussy cut out.
The image was again stamped in Versamark, this time on Real Red cs and the banner portions were heat embossed with gold embossing powder.   I also embossed the doily with gold ep. 
The challenge will be the last Friday of every month and will run for a week. We will be challenging you to sketches, colors, inspiration, and themes; whatever strikes our fancy! One random person will win a Skipping Stones Design stamp set of their choice and each of the design team gals will be sharing their favorite card for the week. Skipping Stones Design Stamps are not required, but highly encouraged...we want to be inspired by you too! Please tell all your friends about our challenge and invite them to play along. Challenge will end on Friday, September 4 at 5:00PM EST. If you are on social media sites use #skippingstonesdesign and #stampandshare and if you upload to Splitcoaststampers use the keywords ssd and skippingstonesdesign. We would love to visit and share some love with you!
I am linking up to Merry Monday-' Red, Dark and Light green'.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed week!  Hope to see you at the Skipping Stones Designs Stamp and Share Challenge!
