Skipping Stones Design Sketch Tuesday: SSD021 –Your 110 lb Friend :)

Good morning crafty friends!

It’s time for another Skipping Stones Design Sketch Tuesday and today’s sketch is a really fun one! This week Kimberly Crawford is challenging us to:


You may remember that I mentioned in a previous post that shaped cards are not something I am entirely comfortable with… YET…

I decided to take the sketch literally this time and created a round card.


and since it was dinner time when I was making it I was a little hungry and needed a snack. So I made a cookie with a fancy wrapper. :) I was craving Oatmeal Crunchies, but Brent said it needed chocolate chunks... so there ya have it.

I traced a circle on a piece of folded cardstock using a regular old CD and then cut it out with my Fiskars cutting thingy… it’s that disk like thing that has a blade in the bottom.. lol… the name of it has escaped me.. ay yi yi…. anyway. You can see the small folded area at the bottom of the card.

Then I took a bite out of it by cutting random teeth marks in both layers with some super sharp scissors. It must have been an ogre who bit it cuz the teeth marks show 3 front teeth.. lol! Shrek… you naughty boy!


The “chocolate chunks” are made from chocolate CTMH cardstock and are just random cut out bits and glued down with a quickie glue pen. All patterned papers and embellishments are from a Kit Club packet that I picked up from Treasured Scrapbooking (Erin Gudge). The papers and buttons are from Basic Grey’s Origins collection. The felt ribbon is from the discount bin @ Stampin Up and I tucked a bit of green tulle poking out from under the flower.


I used the sentiment from Skipping Stones Design’s set Birthday Donuts.

Now get off the computer and go make some cookies!

Inky Smiles!
