SSD04 - Hang in there!

Tis another week of the Skipping Stones Sketch Tuesdays and tis also the season for giving :) Yes Virgina, there will be blog candy ;) I'm just going to hold you in suspense until I get to through the nitty gritty *giggle*

This week for SSD Tuesday we are working with a square card for SSD04 and I have chosen to work with the Bra's Volume 1 set which has a lot of quirky and fun sentiments about friendship and dare I say....bosoms ;)

This fun polka dot bra comes hanging on a hanger and I snipped off the loop and replaced part of the image with a real wire loop and paper toled the bra to make it dimensional. I sponged the background with blues to really make the bra pop and to show the brightness in the coral colours. I coloured the "lace" on the bra with my white gel pen and added some highlights with my sparkly stardust pen :)

Now that you have "hung in there" for all of the blather above I have some blog candy to offer! Thanks to Heather (the very generous owner of Skipping Stones Design) I have this wonderful set to share with you:

Hooray! Isn't this the perfect set for seasonal celebrations? There is many a toast to be made over the holidays and to get this set, all you have to do is leave me a comment and I will post the winner next Tuesday (Dec 29th). And if you don't win but would like to one some of these fabulous sets then Heather has a save the shipping event on where you get free shipping on orders over $30 and that includes International shipping!

Good luck everyone and if I don't get a chance to post again before Christmas (knowing me, I won't) I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas! May Santa bring you oodles of goodies and may you get a chance to share your holidays with your loved ones :)
