GKD Center Stage Spotlight Design Team Blog Hop

hi there - i so enjoy these GKD hops! For this hop, we've been given a sketch from Melissa Cash that was a real challenge and so much fun to work with...and if you're following the hop, you should have arrived here from her awesome blog!

 Make sure to leave a comment as you hop along because on Tuesday morning (May 17th), we will randomly choose one of the comments from all the blogs who will get a stamp set of their choice valued up to $24.95!  if you want to start at the beginning, just go here at STV

and here are my cards



hope you see the sketch in each one - had trouble adding the accents in same spot as sketch...
now - I have a problem - this is the second post I've done for this hop because Blogger deleted previous posts and my details for each card are at home - I'm visiting daughter and family here in North Carolina... and who would of thought Blogger would have had such a serious problem - sure am glad they fixed it though...shows how much card sharing is dependent on blogger...

so on to the fabulous blog of Kay Simmons
hope you liked my cards...
Enjoy the hop (-:


the GKD sets used were:
Branching Out by Melanie Muenchinger
Timeless Textures
Thanks a Million
Follow your Dreams by Theresa Momber
Gifts From the Sea by Melanie Muenchinger

Fun takes on the circle sketch. I love them all and they have all inspired me. I like how you used the seashells in your first card and the one that I really liked is the masculine card with the boat. I have Father's Day on my mind an wow would that one fill the bill.
