Sketch Saturday #312 Pick-A-Sketch Happy Anniversary Blog Hop

It's our 6th Anniversary today at 
We are celebrating with a Blog Hop with Jo Edwards who posted our very first sketch challenge back on May 31, 2008.

We are absolutely delighted to be sponsored by
Little Miss Muffet

who are offering one randomly chosen prize winner
a $25.00 gift certificate 
to the Little Miss Muffet shop!
also joining us in our Hop are the Little Miss Muffet Design Team.

As May is one of those months with five Saturdays in it - this week you can Pick-A-Sketch from any of Sketch Saturday's previous sketches between #215 and #311.  You can find our past sketches here.  You just need to let us know which one you used by including a copy of the sketch in your post.

I used #224 with this lovely Little Miss Muffet digi called Rosalie which you can find here.  I have a gift voucher for the recipient of my card which is long and thin and so I decided to make my card long and thin too.  My papers are My Minds Eye Collectable "Remarkable".  Rosalie has been coloured in Copics and Promarkers, the flower is Prima and the brad is from my stash.  The sentiment is by PTI.   I also made a little tag to go on the gift card holder using Stampin Up stash. I lurve my SU stash and I just don't play with it enough!

And here is the sketch I used for my card but remember you can use any Sketch Saturday Sketch from our archive.

There are prizes hidden along the Blog Hop
so scooch some space on your craft table, grab your stash and play along and leave a comment at each stop on the hop to maximize your chances of winning!   I am so struggling to include my Blog Hop list so if it is not here or if it is here twice I apologise.    You have until Friday evening to enter the challenge and the hop and winners and blog hop prizes will announced Saturday, June 7th at 7:30 am UK.

I have even more reason to celebrate this week because my Mum has now left the hospital and is back at home.   Thank you again to everyone who wished her well!

Edited to add:
Thanks to everyone who joined in our Blog Hop.  Feel free to continue to comment but the selection of hop prizes is now closed.

I am entering my card into the following challenges
Anything Goes with Little Miss Muffet and Simon Says; and
I'm entering my tag in Creative Inspirations
