It's Uplifting

Welcome to the Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop to celebrate the release of Uplifting! If you've just happened upon my blog today, make sure to start from the beginning at Skipping Stones Design. You should have arrived here from Amy's blog and from here you will head over to Diana Fishers Blog

Combined with the blog hop today, it's also Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesday which means we're showcasing another great creation from our Guest Sketch Artist this month, Laurie Schmidlin. We'd love for you to play along with the sketch and link your card at the Skipping Stones Blog. A free stamp set is up for grabs to a lucky winner that joins our sketch challenge!

This new set called Uplifting is absolutely beautiful. It has gorgeous font and there are so many wonderful possibilities with this set. For my card today I actually created this scene using 3 seperate images from the set. I wish you could see in the picture but I did color some flowers and the balloon in a very pale blue.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Enjoy your day!!
Here is the hop order, thanks!
