300

Sketch Saturday has its 300th challenge today!
WOW! that's an achievement eh? :)
As one the original Saturday Girls, I was asked if i'd like to be their Guest Designer for this momentous occasion. Of course, I said YES!  and not only that, my first ever sketch gets an airing too, although it has had a bit of a facelift, but then I would need one too if I reached 300! lol...
Obviously the new sketch is the one on the right. And here's my card using it...



The image is Birthday Candle Birdbrain, by From The Heart Stamps. I think that this is one of my favourite images right now, it's such a lovely image to colour. As usual, i've used promarkers here.
The papers used are both from MME's life of the party pad.
The pretty border is a cArt-Us die (fountain).

This weeks sketch is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, who are offering a very generous $25 gift certificate for the lucky challenge winner.

Not only that, to celebrate the 300th challenge, there's a blog hop too!
Hopefully you came here after seeing Jen's fabulous creation.
Not to worry if you didn't, here's the hop order if you need to go back and start over...

Lizy
Vannessa

There's mystery candy hidden along the way in this hop.
You won't know where the candy is, so to be in with a chance to win, all you need to do is leave a comment at each stop on the hop (including here), which is easy peasy as you're hopping along to see the wonderful cards made by the SS DT anyway aren't you? ;)

Please hop along next to Debra's blog to see what she has made to inspire you, oh and don't forget to comment :) Good Luck! x

Blog hop winners will be announced on Sketch Saturday next Saturday, March 15th at 7:20am.
