100% Tough Guy - SSD #117

I needed a card for my nephew's birthday so I chose one of the older masculine sets, Tough Guy to go with this cute sketch from Kazan Clark for the last sketch of the month at Skipping Stones Design.  It has been so much fun being a Guest Designer this month.  I hope you'll play along for SSD Sketch 117!

Kissing - Skipping Stones Design Style

I'm afraid I strayed from the sketch a bit this week...(SSD 116)

couldn't quite figure out how to showcase the 'kiss' part of Garden Kiss, the featured set for this month...anyhow, this is what I came up with, it was fun experimenting with the solid stamp and 'kissing' with the different background stamps.  Many possibilities with this cute set...there's even a little tutorial at Skipping Stones Design-Video.  It's short and sweet...take a peek!  (The sentiment is from SSD Heartsong)

OWH-Ribbon Challenge

This is for this months challenge at Operation Write Home-Our Daily Bread February Challenge to use ribbon on your card.  Our Daily Bread has generously offered to sponsor the shipping of a box of cards for every 25 cards submitted for the challenge...my card is number 50, so they'll sponsor 2 boxes again this month!

I know this looks a little sparkley for Operation Write Home, but the sparkle on the shoes is from Stickles and I promise I checked and double-checked for any glitter transfer, same with the sparkley ribbon.  As soon as I saw the 'no place like home' sentiment from Hero Arts I knew I wanted to pair it with these 'ruby slippers' from Skipping Stones Design, and the brick background stamp from Prima Clear Stamps.  Then I spotted some blue gingham ribbon in my stash to mimic Dorothy's dress.  What do you think, enough references to Wizard of Oz?
