SSD Blog Hop

Welcome to Skipping Stones Design’s Blog Hop to celebrate the release of a new stamp set, "Always Here". If you just happened upon my blog today, you’ll want to go back to the beginning at Skipping Stones Design. You should have arrived from Heidi's blog.

Combined with the blog hop today, it's also Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday which means the Design Team is showcasing another fabulous sketch from Maren Benedict! We'd love for you to play along with the sketch and link your card at the
Skipping Stones Blog. Just remember to use the keywords SSD040 if you are uploading to any online galleries.

Here is my sample for this week's sketch:


I had some difficulties taking a good photo of the card, it is raining all the time, so please forgive the bad pic! I colored the butterflies with copics and added some accents with a white gel pen. The paper is Basic Grey. I worked with the digital images on this card, but my real stamp set arrived today and I can't wait to ink it up! The butterflies are beautiful!

So here is today's Blog Hop list:

Vanessa Menhorn http://www.wingsofabutterfly-vanessa.blogspot.com/ -> YOU ARE HERE! :)

Have fun hopping and thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa
