Cityscapes Are On the Rise Challenge in the Moxie Fab World

Ribbon - Making Memories-Paper Reverie
Button - Chatter Box-artsy.licious

Oldies But Goodies Blog Hop

Thanks for joining us today as we kick off our new Friday Feature showcasing some of the 'Oldies But Goodies' from Skipping Stones Design.  You should have come here from Jen's blog, Just Jingle.  If not, be sure to start from the beginning at Skipping Stones Design.

Here is my take on the set called 'You Know You're Gettin' Old Birthday':

This is the first set I purchased from Skipping Stones Design and I think it is still my favorite (maybe it's because when you get to be my age all of the sayings apply so well!)...there are so many variations you can use with this set:

I made this one for my little brother last week for his birthday:

Anyhow, endless fun!  Be sure to check out all the other Stamp Tramp favorites and then hop back to Skipping Stones Design to Visit the Shop.

Here's the blog order in case you get lost along the way...

Chick Chat at Skipping Stones Design Sketch Tuesday #69

Hey there Chic-a-Dee, check out this cute set from Skipping Stones Design.  Hubby asked me if that polka dot ribbon was supposed to be a skirt, so I am encouraged that if a guy could relate that my cute friend who's getting this card can tell!

The 'Buy 3 Get 1 Free' sale is still going on too.  There are soooo many cute sets to choose from, might as well take advantage of the '1 free' offer!

This week's fun sketch is from the very talented Heidi Blankenship.  We love to see your creations on the Skipping Stones Design Sketch Tuesday site and on Facebook and now let's see you get crafty!
