Sketch Saturday ~ It’s Our Birthday!

Sketch Saturdays - Page 106 (1)

Sketch Saturday is One Year Old Today!

To celebrate with you, we have a wonderful prize from our generous sponsor the Craft Barn:


As a special thank you to all of our wonderful crafters who support us with their kind comments and inspiring submissions to our challenge, each of the DT have prepared a Surprise Gift Bag. We have each filled our bags with some of our favorite things that we’d like to share with you.

To enter you must complete a card based on this week’s sketch and then post a comment linking your card to the Sketch Saturday Blog posting  as per usual. Then you must go to the DT blogs and if you would like to enter for their particular gift bag, comment on the relevant  posting and link the card you have made with this week’s sketch. Hope I am making sense! We want the gifts to go to our Sketch Saturday participants!

To create my bag I used this week’s sketch and followed this tutorial for a Double Pocket Bag. I have filled it with some of my very favorite things. I know you will love it!

  • Stamps: Whiff of Joy Willow in the Summer Breeze SU Sentiments
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: SU Red Riding Hood, Sahara Sand, Bella Bleu DP
  • Coloring: Copic Markers
  • Embellies: Red Riding Hood Ribbon, Hero Arts Gemstones, SU Cord

I just want to say that I love being on the Sketch Saturday Design Team. My fellow DT are all kind, warm and caring individuals and it is an honor to work alongside their considerable talent. I also love being part of a challenge where so many talented and sweet people join in and spread inspiration around! I have happily gotten to know some of you quite well! Here’s to more fun-filled Sketch Saturday Challenges! A special thank-you to our leader and the creator of Sketch Saturday, Jo. I am so happy to be part of your fabulous challenge and you are so incredibly talented and a real sweetheart! MWAH! So I hope you enjoy our little party for you! Check out all the DT to enter for their Surprise bags!

Oh my, this is sooo beautiful! I like your photos so much, there is so much light in them.
If you are late commenting I can hardly find any time to comment at all nowdays. I have to choose between making the cards and commenting, little sad but thats the way it is when there is limited time for crafting. We will have great time with new WOJ stamps :)
