Sketch Saturday #300 Special Celebration with Simon Says Stamp and a Blog Hop

We  have  some exciting news for you today.  
This is our 300th challenge here at 
Sketch Saturday
How amazing is that!

We  are sponsored by our very special friends at
Simon Says Stamp
who are offering one lucky winner $25 to spend in store

AND
Jo Edwards, the founder of Sketch Saturday
has joined us to celebrate!
The sketch this week was designed by Jo
and was the very first sketch here at Sketch Saturday...

AND
To celebrate we are having a BLOG HOP!
There is a considerable amount of mystery CANDY hidden along the way so be sure to visit all of the Saturdays for inspiration and comment at each stop to maximize your chance to win some candy.  Do then come and play along with our sketch for a chance to win the fabulous prize from Simon Says Stamp.

18.45 GMT 14 Mar 2014        Edited to add: 
Our challenge at Sketch Saturday has now closed and my blog hop candy has also closed 
but don't let that stop you leaving me a comment!  I do so love to have visitors!

For my card, I used this delightful Sugar Nellie Simply Sassy by the lovely Krista Smith called Hippie Chick and coloured her with Copics.  My papers are Farmland by Crate Paper and the whole card is cut using Go Kreate dies.  I have a lot of these oversized Prima flowers which are sadly no longer in vogue but I thought it looked perfect with this large image.  I added some little star charms on chains given to me by our No 1 daughter.  

And here is Jo's very first sketch...
If you are hopping with us you should have arrived here from Carla and your next stop on the hop is Niki:
Then grab your stash and get creative.  We love to see what you come up with.
I am entering my card into the following challenges:
Anything goes at Papertake Weekly, Loves Rubberstamps, Crafts and Me and Creative Inspirations, and
Birthday at The Ribbon Girl;
G is for Girls at ABC; and lastly
Special Lady (or Mother's Day) at The Sugar Bowl
