Trust Me


Hello, hello! Welcome to the party. Please hang your coats and hats on the rack, slip off your shoes, grab and drink and make yourself welcome! We are celebrating the new release of Grapeful by Skipping Stones Design and The Twinery is here to add to the fun with a special blog hop! You should have arrived from Ashley Bores' blog if you are hopping along!


Skipping Stones Design is also having their regularly scheduled fun sketch challenge this week! (Please join along, the regular rules and details apply!) Because I was planning for the party by cleaning house (just imagine right along with me please!) I ran out of creativity and for me right now it is ok. I showcased some of the fun sentiments in the new Grapeful set, and added just a little bit of twine in a classic way. I did nix the bow, however, and opted for a bit of a tasseled look.


There is a few details you should know about the hop, which started yesterday. Up for grabs, chosen at random on all comments left, is a Colorful Bunch Sampler Pack from The Twinery as well as the new Grapeful Skipping Stones Design plus another stamp set from Skipping Stones Design! The deadline for leaving comments is 11:59 pm EST, Friday, May 25th. The winner will be announced on The Twinery Blog on Sunday, May 27th. Also, Skipping Stones has extended their PMS Stamp Sale, which you can read about on the Skipping Stones Design Blog!



Your next stop on the hop is Jen Carter!

  3. I love that you've hidden the beverage, like drinking on the sly... is that what you were doing while cleaning house? The bright yellow realy grabs you attention, even pre-coffee.

  8. Those pins remind me of cocktail picks. Such a fun sentiment and great color combo. Did you draw the black lines? I'll have to remember that idea.

  17. Even though you said you didn't have much creativity left, I think your card is fabulous! There's not a lot of layering and embellishing, but sometimes simple can be just as striking. Love the tassel you created with the twine. I'll have to try that sometime.
