Welcome to the Skipping Stones Blog Hop!!!

Welcome to the Skipping Stones Design Blop Hop sponsored by Skipping Stones Design an incredibly fun and sassy new stamp company. If you've just happened upon my blog, you're in for a wonderful surprise today. I'm the first stop on today's blog hop so grab your coffee and enjoy the hop.


Today is an incredibly exciting day for us!!! We're introducing our entire design team and members of the Dirty Dozen and Dirty Dozen Alumni from Splitcoaststampers are helping us out. How amazing is that???

The design team is using this weeks' sketch designed by the amazingly talented Amy Scheffer aka Pickletree (on SCS). When I found out that Amy is January's Guest Sketch Artist, I was over the moon excited. I've been a long time fan of Amy's so I am unbelievably excited to be working with her sketches this month.

Can I just say I love this fun and sassy stamp set called "Funny about Men"? I've made a few cards with it now and I love how creative you can be with it? Don't you just love this sentiment? Now isn't that funny? I know there are definitely times I want to bite my husband's head off even though he is the most amazing man on earth.


Along the way, the Skipping Stones Design Team (aka the Stamp Tramps) will have blog candy for you to enter. I have the set called Garden Kiss as part of my blog candy. Check out the loot I'm giving away. I'll be announcing my blog candy winner on my blog on Friday, January 8th.


Heather, the owner of Skipping Stones Design is also giving away some new unreleased sets!!! Four lucky winners will be selected by the random comment generator. Winners will receive one of the unreleased sets shown below. The winners will be announced on Friday January 8th at Skipping Stones Design.

Make sure you leave some love on everyone's blogs!!! I know that there is more blog candy to be had!!!! You never know.... I think the Dirty Dozen Crew may have some goodies for you too!!!

Wanna know more good news??? EVERYTHING at Skipping Stones Design is 25 % off on Tuesday and Wednesday. Simply enter the code 25off at the Checkout. To sweeten the deal a little more, shipping is free on any order over $30 including international shipping.

Are you still with me???? Wow!!! I didn't realize how much info I would have being the first person on the blog hop! Your next stop is the amazing AMY SCHEFFER of Pickled Paper Designs.
