SSD #38 and a give-away!

* GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED*

Happy Tuesday! Time for the next Skipping Stones Design Challenge! Here is Maren's sketch for this week:
And here is my take on sketch #38:


I used the beautiful butterfly from the "Healing Wings" Set, the music background from the "Timeless Textures" set and the sentiment from the "Dandelion Dreams" set. Check out the other samples and the challenge here. I hope you will play, too!

And now to the give-away! Heather from Skipping Stones Design is very generous and is offering this gorgeous stamp set to one of my readers:



Beautiful, isn't it? I just love using it! So to win this, just leave me a comment here! I will draw a winner next Tuesday and will announce the lucky duck in the next SSD post. Good luck!

Have a happy day and thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa
