SS152: Sparkle Creations 'Charlotte with a Rose'

Sparkle Creations Charlotte with a Rose rubber stamp
Distress Ink Pad 'Vintage Photo'

Happy Easter Saturday everyone! Today I have my Sketch Saturday #152 make to share with you.

I was a very good girl this week (hee hee!) and didn't turn or flip Jo's fabulous sketch (and I even added the sentiment!):

This week we are being sponsored by Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps, and one lucky winner will win TWO SCRS rubber stamps - Scooter Chloe and Cruisin' Chloe.

I have used the darling Charlotte with a Rose for my card.  I paired her with some of the gorgeous and *NEW* Echo Park 'For the Record' 6x6 paper (available HERE from Elaine at Quixotic Paperie, along with all the other scrummy Echo Park 6x6 pads).  Regular readers of my blog will know that I LOVE Echo Park paper and have been not-so-patiently waiting for these paper pads to arrive here in the UK.  Well, I am not disappointed - they are even MORE gorgeous than I could have imagined!  Each pad contains 24 double-sided sheets of wonderful quality Echo Park paper with reduced patterns - perfect for us cardmakers. 

Guess what? There are 3 ways to win 4 different SCRS rubber stamps at the moment! WOW! Not only is Sparkle sponsoring today's Sketch Saturday with 2 Chloe images, she is also giving away a Charlotte with a Rose stamp for this week's Friday Freebie!  So be sure to hop on over to THIS POST and leave a comment by Sunday at midnight EST to be included in the draw!

Also, this week's SCRS challenge #39 is still running until Monday evening (handmade embellishment), and if you join us you will be popped into the draw to win a Travelling Josh rubber stamp.  So why not get your SCRS stamps out, follow our fabby Sketch Saturday sketch and combine challenges!

Finally, Sparkle is running a special Easter weekend sale, where everything is 15% off...

So all that remains is for me to wish you all a wonderful Easter!  I hope you have a fabulous time, whatever you're up to!

Thank you, as always, for taking the time to drop by - it's so, so appreciated!
