One year ago today...

I started my blog!! WOW! I can't believe I've being doing this blogging thing one whole year!

So I thought I'd do something special for this momentous occasion!! I'm going to do a sketch challenge in order to win this HUGE blog candy package I'm giving away!!

Rules- This challenge is on until Aug. 1st! that gives anyone wanting to try this 2 whole weeks to get the chance to play along.

Create anything you like based on my sketch- cards, altered, layouts etc...

The winner's creation will be displayed on my blog with the announcement! Feel free to link me on your blog, spread the word!!

Please leave a direct link to your creation in my comments section- Mr. Linky isn't being reliable so I don't want to use it. Any indirect links will be deleted. Thank you for playing along!!

This package includes lots of stickers, letter stickers, rubons, chipboard stickers, new and older product, an entire alphabet of 6 inch letters from Bobunny, chipboard and more. If I have over 25 entries in my sketch challenge, I will make another fabulous package up and have two winners!!

This is only the beginning in giveaways for me, I have pulled aside many many fantastic products to giveaway over the next several months! So please do keep coming back and checking to see when I post them!

Last but not least is our CardPatterns cards today! Our sketch was sponsered again by Odd Bird Planet, and I loved that I layered the vintage images on this card. I also made a sewing pattern paper flower- Dawne asked if I made one last week- yes - they are super simple. Simply take and cut out several circles from your sewing paper, I actually did three sizes of circles, cutting out about 3 circles per size, then punched a hole in the middle and added this great vintage brad from Bobunny. Then I scrunched the whole thing in my hand, and worked the layers a bit to make it look more like a flower. I finished it off with some stickles glue. I added some older Bobunny ribbon and my tiny type letters to finish the card.

Thanks for coming by today!
have a great Saturday!
