Skipping Stones Designs

Hi everyone. Well it was a long weekend for us here in Australia and I spent the day creating my clinic room for my therapeutic massage business with my bestie Sonya. It looks fabulous and if Son had not nagged me to do it, it would still not be done ROTFLOL so many thanks Son, we did good. I went over to Karen Giron's blog today to see what the challenge was and Karen has been selected to be a guest designer for October on Skipping Stones Design blog using one of her own sketches this week. So I thought I would join in but they have not put the challenge up yet I jumped ahead of myself, but I did the card anyway so I will link up with them tomorrow perhaps. I used all Stampin' Up! supplies which included the brand new colour Early Expresso and can I say what a rich chocolate colour it is!!! It is so very yummy! I think I will be using it a whole lot over the coming months hehe. I also used Greenhouse Gala one of the new DSP collections from the new catalogue and of course my beautiful vintage brads which I cannot leave alone. I think I will be going through heaps of these in the coming year.

Okay, okay I'll get on with it hehe. Below is my card that I created. . . .






Below is the stamp set that I used with the stamp pads and the DSP collection.

Well until tomorrow when I will probably be back with another something to share with you. I hope you are all enjoying the extra daylight here in Australia.
In the meantime. . . .
Walk about your day with the sun in your face.
