Mona Pendleton | Monday, April 4, 2011 @ 9:00 PM | , , ,

Happy Tuesday! I have some Juicy news to share with you all today! I am very happy and honored to share with you that Heather Engebretson, Owner of Skipping Stones Design has invited me to join her and her talented DT for the month of April as a Guest Designer!
I stamped the cherry image from Friendly Fruit and stitched on a few felt leaves. Using a Standard Circles LG die template to cut/emboss the image then layered it on top of a sweet doily made using a die from the PTI Doily Details Collection. ALL this sweetness was layered on top of some fun paper from the Melissa Frances Kitschy Kitchen Collection.
Every Tuesday, there is a sketch challenge on the Skipping Stones Design site and all are encouraged to join along in the fun!
