SSD031 I want to be a Cullen



Welcome to Skipping Stones Design’s Blog DT Blog Hop to celebrate the release of two new stamp sets, "Fangs or Fur" and Chocolate Vol. 2. This is our "sweetest" release yet, whether you're a Twilight fan or a chocolate lover, we have something for you!! If you just happened upon my blog today, you’ll want to go back to the beginning at Skipping Stones Design. You should have arrived from Chelsea's blog.


I have to admit something...  I am not a Twihard... I haven't read a single Twilight book yet... I haven't seen any of the movies.... but from what I understand the ladies love these guys!!!  I may just have to get the books over the summer to see what the hype is all about.... Might I become a Twihard - you never know...

What I do know is that the DT has been swooning over this set for a couple of months now so of course in honor of Eclipse coming out Wednesday, I had to use this set.  Love the image and the sentiments are just too good.  I decided not to color the image because I wanted a crisp clean look to the card and let the red pop.  What do you think?  I'm just happy I know what some of the book covers look like so I figured this was a safe color combo. 

Combined with the blog hop today, it's also Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday which means the Design Team is showcasing another great creation from Teri Anderson. We'd love for you to play along with the sketch. Just remember to use the keywords SSD031 if you are uploading to any online galleries or link your card at the Skipping Stones Blog. We'll be looking soon for Guest Designers so you never know....

Make sure you leave a comment as there will be blog candy up for grabs!!! I have "Bras Vol. 1" in my stash to be given away!!!

Just thought I'd let you know that I'm the end of the blog hop, so head over to Skipping Stones and get your "fangs" on! Did you see some of the Twihards cards?? Did you notice who joined us for this exciting blog hop??? Jodi Collins!!!! OMG!!!! Now if that isn't stamping royalty I don't know what is.  I love her cards, her blog, her style, it's fantastic!!! I've been talking with Jodi the last couple of days through email and she's convinced me I need to read the books...  Twilight here I come!!!

Actually..you should have arrived at your blog from my blog but I still love your card. Isn't that Lush paper (I think that's what you used) divine for Twi-cards?!
