Little Miss Sketches

Little Miss Muffet Stamps are sponsoring the new challenge at Sketch Saturday, (please pop over to Sketch Saturday for all the details) and this week, it's a special week...

Today, Sketch Saturday is celebrating 6 years!
I posted the very first sketch on the blog on 31st May 2008.
To start with, My intention was to just share my layouts with anyone who would like to use them to make a card. Then, just a few months later, Sketch Saturday had a design team and sponsors! Then it became a popular challenge blog loved by so many :)
I had a fantastic time in my 4 years there, and though I was sad to go, it was the right time to do so, to give SS a new injection of craftiness with a fresh design team and fresh sketches.

To help celebrate 6 years of sketches, we are having a Blog Hop! There are prizes hidden along the Blog Hop, so leave a comment at each stop on the Hop to maximize your chances of winning!

Hopefully you came here after seeing Jen's fabulous creation.

For my card, I used SS sketch #299...

This image is one of my faves, Birthday Bunny by Little Miss Muffet Stamps.
The pretty paper was free in a craft mag, it's from a pad called Bonnets & Bowties and is by Lili of the Valley & Nitwit Collections.
The sentiment is from Paper Smooches 'Sentiment Sampler' set
I used the smallest flower from my Die-namics flower and leaf trio die and added a blue flatback crystal to finish.

I'd like to enter this card at:
Lexi's Creations - happy birthday
The Pink Elephant - anything goes
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
Crafty Catz - anything goes

Please hop along next to Julie's blog, oh and don't forget to comment ;)

The sketch challenge (using any sketch between 215 and 311) and the Blog Hop end at 7pm UK/ 1pm US-CT time on the 6th June.
All winners will be announced on the Sketch Saturday blog, on Saturday, 7th June.
Good luck everyone :) xx
