He's the one who makes the sun shine...He's the one who that puts the moon in the sky...

Happy Tuesday, y'all! It's time for this week's Skipping Stones Design Sketch! Since it's a new month, it's also time to welcome a new Guest Sketch Artist. I'm a tad familiar with her sketches because I was one of the original Sketch for You to Try girls back in the day, and y'all know I love my fellow Texan friend Jen del Muro! Here's the fabulous sketch we have to work with this week:


And here's my card, using some yummy papers and embellishments from our December partner Canvas Corp...y'all know I love their stuff!!


I decided to use a little mini bag on the front of my card for a place to hold a gift card with a little tag. I stamped this print from Timeless Textures in VersaMagic ink, and wrote "for you..." on the front. The bag is clipped shut with a lime green mini clothespin...how cute is that? And when you open the little bag...


Out slides the tag! These Kraft tags come with fabulous jute twine, but I opted for some red & white twine instead. The sentiment and ink splotches from the Grunge set were stamped in Fresh Snow ink. I swiped the inkpad around the tag edges as well. I have lots of friends with birthdays close to the holidays (including mine!) so I went for it on this card.


I hope you will play along with us this week! Thanks for stopping by, and don't forget to check out all the gorgeousness from my fellow designers...and say hi to the Canvas Corp designers who will be joining us all month!
