Happy Monday friends!  Katie Gehring here with a little surprise… you see I have hijacked the Skipping Stones blog today because some friends of Skipping Stones Design and I want to say thank you to Heather Engebretson.

Heather is the creative mastermind behind Skipping Stones Design.  Over the past several years Heather has been such a passionate supporter the stamping and paper crafting community from offering up weekly inspiration through sketch challenges to her charitable work through the legendary Blogs for Boobies.  She  has given generously to  her design team and guest designers as well as artists that make Skipping Stones Designs come alive on paper. At the beginning of December, Heather announced that Skipping Stones Design would be taking a hiatus.  Heather’s creativity and sense of humor will be missed, and today, we want to say thank you.

Joining me to say thank you to Heather today is a chorus of 15 other talented ladies.  Please take some time to visit each blog and enjoy the fantastic Skipping Stones inspiration.  Some projects will be lovely, some will be sweet, and some may even make you LOL in true Skipping Stones style.

And because you can’t have a blog hop without prizes, I have three sets to give away to lucky folks who participate and comment on the hop.  The sets are Heartsong, Grapeful, and Sassy Snow.   The cut off for comments will be Sunday, February 3 at 5 p.m. Eastern Time.  Winners will be randomly selected from the designer’s blogs and will be announced on Monday, February 4 on the Skipping Stones blog and  my blog as well.  Please make sure that your contact information (email address) is connected to you blog profile or leave it in the comments section so I have a way to get a hold of you if you are one of the lucky winners.   I have also heard there may also be another set  for grabs on a designer’s blog.

Without further ado, below is our order for today’s hop.

We hope that you enjoy the Skipping Stones inspiration that we have put together today.   Heather, this one is for you! Thank you, thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and we wish you all the best with your future endeavors!
Creatively yours,
Katie
