SRM Sticker SKIP


I think you all will enjoy this little SKIP today.  It will be fun to see what all of the different card makers do with the same SRM Stickers.

I must confess this is my third card.  First one never made it  past paper on the cutting board - second one was finished but it wasn't quite right - and then I came up with this card.  I decided to use the tree sticker to decorate the hot air balloon Riley the Moose is flying in  - wouldn't that be fun to see floating over your home.  I kept the design very simple - this would be clean and simple for me - The paper is from My Mind's Eye.  I added my sentiment on a banner - the image and sentiment are pop dotted for some extra dimension.

Please leave some comments - each blog will be giving away a sheet of these stickers.

I now want you to SKIP over to Jan's Blog - I know I can't wait to see what she has created.

At the end make sure you stop by Stars and Stamps - and leave a comment and tell us what you would do with a sheet of these stickers.

Have fun skipping.
