Welcome to Sketch Challenge 115 and the release of Sassy Cats! If you just came from Wendy J.'s blog, you are in the right place. If you just happened along my blog today, start at the beginning of the hop at Skipping Stones Design. The entire hop order is there and you can hop from blog to blog with ease. You can also check out the challenge details!
So I have a really good excuse for the not so good photo quality. Bleh. Seriously. My daylight bulb mysteriously dislodged itself from the crafty lamp and broke. (Mysteriously is the key word.) Working full time, dinner and homework doesn't leave any time for daylight photos and expediated online shipping was just a little too much. I hope the replacement arrives soon.
...A couple of things. Although this stamp set was created in the sassy style that Skipping Stones Design is known for, this set doesn't have to sassy at all! I simply stamped one of the cat's without its very characteristic eyes and replaced them with some googlie ones. Then I used a lighter color pallete and inked the edges for a soft look. I chose the most generic sentiment included in the set used it on this card.
Be sure to hop along and leave comments on all the fabulous designers’ blogs. This month we are welcoming Cyndi Bundy and Barb Turpin to our team as Guest Designers! Kazan Clark will be providing all the fabulous sketch inspiration this month including the sketch we're using in today's hop!
One Last thing! The Tweetheart Sale has been extended! When you buy 3 sets at regular price, you'll get the new HeartSong 2 for free, which isn't being released until April! (You'll get it before everyone else!)
Head over to Kazan's blog for some more Skipping Stones Design inspiration!
