Happy 3rd Birthday Sketch Saturday - Candy Alert!

Today is a VERY special day for Sketch Saturday as it's our 3rd 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 Sketch Saturday such a success, you can only enter our prize draws if you enter this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge #157. And here is the sketch:


The Craft Barn is sponsoring the main prize for this week's challenge and one lucky winner will win an amazing £50 Craft Barn gift voucher! WOW!



The Craft Barn is holding their June Extravaganza weekend on Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th of June.  There will be FREE craft demos from 24 demonstrators, with a theme of 'The Best of British' featuring designers and demonstrators from the UK and wherever possible promoting products manufactured in the UK.  Further details about their June Extravaganza can be found here: http://www.thecraftbarn.co.uk/section.php/570/1/extravaganza-june-2011

In addition, some of the DT are hosting their own blog candy draws on their own blogs, so make sure you visit all the DT's blogs this week once you've made your challenge creation to enter our draws!

~~ PLEASE NOTE You are only allowed to enter our individual DT blog candy draws if you have taken part in this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge #157 ~~


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

My Party Bag Candy prize is the bag I have made above filled with a few goodies, plus a FANTASTIC Whimsy Stamps Everyday Mini Postage Stamps rubber stamp set, kindly sponsored by Denise at Whimsy Stamps (huge thank you, Denise, *mwah*!).


If you would like to be included in the draw to win my bag and this awesome stamp set, please:

1. Make a new creation following SS Sketch #157 and enter it into the SS 157 challenge over at the SS blog.

2. Come back here and enter my blog candy draw by adding (a) the URL of your own blog post showing your Sketch Saturday #157 make, (b) your name, (c) your email address, into InLinkz below.

3. Leave me a comment (please!). This is optional, but also just in case InLinkz has a wobbly!


(NB One entry per person please. To make it fair, all entries that have not followed the above rules will be removed from the draw.)

My PBC draw ends at 08:00 (UK time) on Friday 3rd June 2011. I will draw a winner using random.org later that day.  All winners will be announced on the Sketch Saturday blog at 07:50 (UK time) on Saturday 4th 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,
