HAPPY BIRTHDAY Sketch Saturday (candy alert!)


Today is a VERY special day for Sketch Saturday as it's our 2nd BIRTHDAY!!!  WOO-HOO!!

To celebrate, we have some wonderful prizes to give away, but as we want to say thank you to all our wonderful SS challengers for supporting us and making SS such a success, you can only enter our prize draws if you enter this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge #105:


The main prize for this week's challenge is a whopping £30 The Craft Barn gift voucher! WOW!  In addition, some of the DT have each put together a small blog candy package, so make sure you visit all the DT's blogs this week once you've made your challenge creation to enter our draws!

For my card I decided to pull out one of my long-neglected Sugar Nellie stamps - Sweet n Sassy.  I spent ages carefully colouring her ... and then had to chop off her bottom half, as the image was too 'tall' for my card and my oval nesties, LOL!  I also tried yet another brand of card to stamp my image onto, and although this was better than SU Whisper White for blending Copics, Rymans card is still top of the tree for me!



As I mentioned before, many of our fabulous Sketch Saturday DT members are offering Party Bag Candies (PBCs) on their personal blogs (including me!) to say thanks to you, our lovely Sketch Saturday challengers! 

If you would like to be included in the draw to win the card above plus my Party Bag Candy (the contents are a secret and so will be a nice surprise, tee hee! ... but I will tell you I have an order from Wild Orchid Crafts hopefully arriving very soon....!), there are a few rules you have to follow:

~~ PLEASE NOTE You are only allowed to enter the draw if you have taken part in this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge #105 ~~

1.  Follow Sketch #105 and enter this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge #105.

2.  Come back here and post the link to your SS #105 blog post, together with a piccie of your challenge card, into InLinkz below.

3.  I would love it if you would leave me a comment please! (optional)

4.  Only one entry per person please.

(NB all entries that have not followed the above rules will be removed from the draw)

My PBC draw ends at 08:00 (GMT) on Friday 4th June 2010.  I will draw a winner using random.org later that day.  All winners will be announced on the Sketch Saturday blog at 07:50 (GMT) on Saturday 5th June just before our new challenge goes live (I shall also announce the winner of my PBC on my blog at the same time).

Finally, I'd just like to pop a little note of thanks here to Jo, our tireless SS leader.  Jo, your commitment, support, appreciation and all-round awesomeness is SO appreciated by us all.  THANK YOU for being you!  You are Sketch Saturday, and we think you're AMAZING!

Hugs,
