Skipping Stones Design Blog Hop and BLOG CANDY!

Happy Tuesday!
If you are coming to my blog today from Erin's blog: Welcome!
If you are just checking in on me, we're on a blog hop today so hop on in and enjoy the ride!
If you'd like to start from the beginning of the hop you can go HERE.
Skipping Stones Design sent me a lovely stamp set for the hop. It's a set called Donut Birthday and it hasn't been released yet so my card is just a SNEAKY PEEK! How fun!
They also sent me a set to give away as BLOG CANDY so make sure you read my whole post and leave a comment so I can enter you! There is blog candy all along the hop so make sure to stop at each spot and leave a comment to enter! The winners will be announced on the Skipping Stones Design site on January 8th!
Without further ado, I present to you my sample from Donut Birthday:

Donuts! *Gah* I love donuts! I mean, WHO doesn't love a donut! And I love that SSD didn't just make a cutesy set here. Yes, it has your "Happy Birthday" sentiment and "Thank You", but they have some fabulously funny sentiments too- which I really went for!"29th" Birthday! Ha!! Isn't that so true, though?!? :) I've got lots of friends who would love a card with that on it! But. WAIT! It gets better! Let's open'er up!
More donuts! And these pop out at you as you open the card! Wish they'd just pop into my mouth. :) This card makes me hungry. LOL
If you've never made one of these, all you do is take a punched out circle, cut into it to make a spiral and then attach the center of the spiral to the card, and the end to the image you want to pop out. Easy and fun!"From your '110 lb.' friend". Ahahahahahahahaaaaaaaa! Ooo...mercy, I need a Kleenex! :)
It doesn't matter how many times I've read that...it still cracks me UP! And how appropriate to have the donuts next that sentiment. Hehehe.
Skipping Stones Design just did an AWESOME job with this set and I know it's going to be a big hit for them (especially when you see the other sentiments in it!), so tune in to them to pick up one for yourself! I personally can't wait to make a card for a police officer we have in our family. He's gonna kill me, and I'm gonna love it. LOL
So on to the BLOG CANDY!
I have the set Blocks & Borders-Swirl up for grabs:
Dear SSD, I want to keep this set. If I enter myself into my blog candy, could I win it? Pretty please with a donut on top?!? :D No? *sigh*
Well, you guys leave a comment letting me know what you think of Donut Birthday (if you can stop laughing, anyway)! And DO go on with the blog hop and see what the other SUPREMELY talented ladies have whipped up for us to ogle over. The next stop is Chelsea's blog. Click ---->>>HERE<<---- to go to her blog!
Your 110ish lb. friend,
