Sketch Saturday's 2nd Birthday!!

WOW! I can hardly believe that Sketch Saturday is 2 years old!
Thank you to each and every one of the amazing Challengers, generous Sponsors, talented Design Team (past & present) as well as our fabulous Guest Designers for making this blog as popular as it is today :)

By way of a personal thank you, Sketch Saturday challengers are invited to enter in our personal blog candies!
Our PBC (Party Bag Candy) was so much fun to do last year!
Some of the design team have put together a small package to say thank you to one SS challenger, please go to each blog and put your name down on the relevant post,
PLEASE NOTE: 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 in your comment on each DT members blog that you visit)
We want to thank sketch saturday challengers so this is why it's only open to SS entrants!
(we will be checking!)
Each Party Bag Candy will close on the DT members blogs at 8:00 AM (UK time) on Friday 4th 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 SS challenge (open to all who leave a link on the main SS blog) will run until 11:59PM UK time on the Friday evening as normal

The sketch is the same obviously, so make your card/project & then leave a link on the main SS blog so you are eligible to win this weeks prize kindly donated by The Craft Barn, then, if you want to be entered into the party bag candy too with the chance to win an extra prize, leave the same link on the blog of each DT member too, if they use mr linky or inlinkz then please use that, if not then please leave a direct link to your work in their comments box.
If your entry can't be found easily then you could miss out on winning, so please do try to leave a direct link, thanks :)

Here is my PBC, it's a wallet,
but i'm not telling you what's inside, that's a surprise for the winner :)

I've used my lovely SU Tea Party papers again :)
The base cardstock is So Saffron, I've also used some Pretty in Pink & Certainly Celery cardstock too the lightest pink card is just a scrap piece (not SU)
I used my eyelet border punch to make the scalloped edge, my boho blossoms punch to make the flowers (I used just the smallest flower on the punch)
and the image is from SU's 'A flower for all seasons' stamp set.
I wrote 'For You' by hand underneath the image.

I hope you will join in with us this week! Not only could you win the main prize by The Craft Barn, but you could also win one of the PBC's made by the DT!
Just remember to leave a direct link to your own work to be eligible to win :)
Good Luck! xx
