Skipping Stones Blog Hop & Introducing Christmas Song!!!

Good Morning, everyone!!!

Welcome to Sketch Challenge #97 and the release of Christmas Song! 

If you just came from Andrea's blog, you are in the right place.  If you just happened along my blog today, start at the beginning of the hop at Skipping Stones Design.  The entire hop order is there and you can hop from blog to blog with ease.

Be sure to hop along and leave comments on all the fabulous designers’ blogs.  This month we are welcoming Andrea Ewen, Tammy Tutterow and Karen Christensen to our team as Guest Designers!  Cristina Kowalczyk will be providing all the fabulous sketch inspiration this month including the sketch we're using in today's hop!

My new Tim Holtz embossing folder was just perfect for this sketch.  His rosette die along with the SSD ornament worked perfectly and I love all of the dimension!

I'm also using my card for the Hope You Can Cling To 2011 "H.O.P.E" Challenge which is to make a card solely of paper.....No bling, no embellishments, no ribbon, etc.  This fit the bill perfectly!

Are you ready to play along?
