Sketch Saturday 3 Year Blogoversary!!

Morning All,

Well as the title suggests today is Sketch Saturday's 3 Year Blogoversary, wahoo!!  Happy Birthday to us, Happy Birthday to us.....  And to celebrate this the DT have all made a gift bag / box / wallet using this weeks sketch with some lovely lush candy inside to give away to our loyal Sketch Saturday participants!  So if you play along this week not only do you have a chance of winning on the Sketch Saturday blog but you also have a chance of winning the mystery candy from the DT too - cool huh!  Ooooo I do love a celebration!!  This week we're sponsored by...



...The Craft Barn who have donated a MAHOOSIVE prize - a goody bag to the value of £50.00!!  (Yes that's, FIFTY WHOLE POUNDS!!)  Wow, wow, WOW  :o))  I wish I could enter myself, lol!!  But sadly only one lucky person will win and if that isn't you you could always pop along to The Craft Barn's June Extravaganza Weekend on Saturday 5th June - Sunday 6th June where there will be FREE demos by 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.  For more information, please click here!!


Here's this weeks sketch...






And here's my gift bag using this weeks sketch!  I have to say I was very scared about making a gift bag as I have never made one before but a quick search on the net to get measurements and I was away!.....and I really enjoyed it!  Hubby was so impressed he thought I'd bought it!!...






Close up of LOTV 'I Baked a Cake'.  I didn't stamp and colour but used one of their die cut sheets as my gift bag is 10" x 9" so a normal stamped image would look way too small.  This was the biggest one of the die cut sheet and I used a circle template to cut her out.  It made a change not to colour!...






And here's a side view...






Look forward to seeing you over at Sketch Saturday and back here too if you want to win my gift bag and candy!  To enter:


1.  Create a card using this weeks sketch
2.  Enter your card at Sketch Saturday
3.  Leave me a comment with a link to your entry (not your blog!) BEFORE 8am ON FRIDAY 3rd JUNE 2011.  Comments left after 8am on 3rd June will not be valid for my blog candy but can still enter at Sketch Saturday.


Easy Peasy!  Hope to see you celebrating with us  :o)
