Sketch Saturday BIRTHDAY BLOGOVERSARY Challenge #157

"Happy Birthday to Us!"

Sketch Saturday is 3 years old

You'd better grab a cup of coffee and sit down, cause are you in for a LONGGGGG we go......

Thank you to each and every one of our amazing challengers, generous Sponsors, talented Design Team (past & present) as well as our fabulous Guest Designers for keeping this challenge blog going for another year :)

By way of a personal thank you, Sketch Saturday challengers are invited to enter our personal blog candies! (our Party Bag Candy or PBC)
Some of the design team have put together a small package to say thank you to one of our challengers, please go to each blog and put your name down on the relevant post to be in with a chance of winning a PBC.

To keep it fair, there are a few rules that apply:
You are only eligible to enter each DT members party bag candy once, and ONLY if you've already taken part in this weeks challenge too (please provide a link to your work for each PBC you enter)
We want to thank sketch saturday challengers so this is why it's only open to SS entrants!
(we will be checking! and all entries that are not eligible will be deleted)

Each PBC will close on the DT members blogs at 8:00 AM (UK time) on Friday 3rd June, please note: FRIDAY MORNING. No entries will be accepted after this time, sorry.
This is so that the DT members can let me know their winner's name so that I can get the post ready for the following morning to announce the winners :)

However, the normal Sketch Saturday challenge (open to all who leave a link on this blog) will run until 11:59PM on the Friday evening as normal, so if you are too late for a PBC you can still win a super-amazing prize!

The sketch is the same for both obviously, so make your card/project and leave a direct link here so that you are eligible to win this weeks fabulous prize kindly donated by The Craft Barn, then, if you want to be entered into a party bag candy prize draw too giving you the chance to win an extra prize, leave the same link on the blog of the DT member too, easy eh?

REMEMBER, as is normal with our challenges, please link back to us in your blog post and please leave only a DIRECT LINK to the post of your card/project, links to just your blog will not be accepted, so if you come back and notice that your entry has been deleted then that will be the reason why.

So, do you want to know what the fabulous prize is by The Craft Barn ?

Well, we have a BUMPER PRIZE for this weeks challenge winner!

OK, on to this weeks challenge, and this the fabulous birthday sketch that Jo made for us to play with.......

And this is what I made for OUR BIRTHDAY CHALLENGE

How about some butterflies......just love those butterflies and lots of glitz and I punched out a few of them and placed it on the Party Bag Candy....

I have colored this georgous girl from Sarah Kay and used my copics for it, placed her on a nestie and the borders are worked on with Star Dust Stickles.....

So this is the front of my Party Bag Candy.....the lovely lace is from my own stash...just love this lace....very vintagy......and all the borders are worked on with the paper distresser......and I placed the sentiment also on a this is the front but every front has a back doesn't it??

I had a handmade stamp for such a long time I just love those little butterflies and thought that I would use it on the back of the PBC....the border is from the EK Succes Punch.....and I love it......

And here is the whole PBC when it is ladies wanna join into OUR Birthday or Blogoversary Challenge? You do eh??? I bet your very curious what I got in the PBC LOL, not gonna tell cause I am keeping it a if you join into the challenge and would like to join into the partybag candy that I made, place your name into the linky and don't forget to check out my teamies blog and PBC.......and offcourse the Sketch Saturday Blogoversary Challenge #157.
