Score!

Hi everyone!  Thanks for all the nice comments and emails asking how I have been doing.  I'm doing pretty good.  My CPM machine for my leg is now gone!  I've been actually getting up off the couch!  Mind you...not much, but hey, it's progress!  :)  There is still pain, but my physical therapist says I am doing really good and I actually surprised him by doing something he didn't think I'd be able to doyet, so that's cool!

Well remember back in January when I guessed designed for Skipping Stones Design.  Well I was so happy when I found a message in my inbox telling me they loved my work and wanted to see more of it!  :)  They have asked me to join their team for a bit!  :)  I am excited about this, because it means more cards!  And of course, more stamping, which if you have known me for long at all you know that I love stamping! 

So today I get to share a new card with you that I made using a new stamp set from Skipping Stones Design.  You actually can't buy the stamp set yet, so this is a sneak of what is to come.  ;)   


My card uses the yet to be released, Beautiful Botanicals stamp set from SSD.  The papers are from The ScrapCake.  And then I used my new Scor-Buddy from Scor-Pal to do the bottom part of the card.  I scrored several lines of the bottom of my cardstock before I cut my card so it was still the same size I usually do (5.5 x 4.25).  I also scored a small piece of white cardstock and then tied it in the middle and added it on top of my card, for additional texture and design.  We actually have a hop coming up with Scor-Pal, so stay tuned for that.  :) 

This was the SSD sketch for this week:


The sketch was created by the fabulous Angi Barrs.  I hope you take the challenge and play along with us!  *You do NOT have to have Skipping Stones Design stamps to play along!*  Play along here
