Warm Wishes--SSD #86 & Celebrate the Season #23

  Another great sketch from Skipping Stones Design.  I used a set of stamps from W Plus 9 Design Studio that I recently won.     I am really having fun with this set (Hope Seed Co.)  Unfortunately, I don't own (yet) the Sentiment Frame Stamp set from Skipping Stones Design, so I really struggled finding something in my collection that would work.  I used Inspirational Quotes from TPC Studio.  The frame isn't quite right (especially since I have a small smudge--UGH.  It's way too late to fix it since it is way late and I have to get up in 4 1/2  hours for a trip out of state for several days.  To make matters worse, my kitten is 'helping' me by finding every thing imaginable on my work table to play with and eat! lol).  I just found another fun challenge blog--Celebrate the Occasion.  This week's challenge is everything blue and white.  I used Core'dinations for my card stock.  I wanted a pearly white.  The blue is from scraps.  I heat embossed the flower and colored it with Stampin' Write Marker and Tombow markers.  (One of these days I will learn how to use Copics.  I am amazed with all the talented people out there who do fabulous shading.  I'm jealous!)  Thanks for checking me out...gotta go--the kitten is into something else!!!
Catapult--my 'helper'
