October Stamp & Share Challenge:

Good morning all!  Here we are on the last Friday of October - I keep saying it, but where did this year go?!?  I just LOVE this time of year:  the snow starts flying, the hustle and bustle, the decorating, you guessed it - Christmas is just around the corner!!  I get excited every year =)

Speaking of Christmas, there is a new challenge over at the Skipping Stones blog:

I, of course, saw Christmas written all over this inspiration photo.  I know it's a bedroom but you just have to use your imagination!!

I started with Skipping Stones Joy using the corner flourish stamp.  Basically I stamped it many, many times (28 to be exact, but who is counting) to create my gold embossed background.  I also masked the flourish stamp to create a smaller pattern in the bare areas.  It really didn't take long once I figured out my pattern and it was SO worth it as it created a one of kind background!

I also masked the Skipping Stones Joy sentiment from two lines to one so it would fit on my tag.

I had so much fun creating this card and felt it needed a pizzazz-y bow too!

We would love to see what you create!  Come play along for your chance to win!  You can find the above stamps I used and more at Skipping Stones Design.

Thank you to Skipping Stones for having me this month as their Guest Designer.  It was a chance for me to meet new friends and use some new to me products!

Cheers all!  Have a great weekend!
