Happy 3rd Birthday Sketch Saturday... Candy to be won!

Happy 3rd Birthday Sketch Saturday!!
Before I go into the details of this fabby celebration, I'd like to send a HUGE thankyou to the wonderful JO!
 Jo... you are a STAR... Sketch Saturday wouldn't be what it is without all your hard work, and organisation...
You are wonderful to work with and I am honoured to be a part of this team.
Thanks for being you!!

okay...on with the show....
Want to help us celebrate and to be in with a chance of winning some fab prizes??
As well as the AWESOME prize for the main challenge (more details on the SS blog, and further down in this post) for this special birthday week...some of the design team have put together a small package to say thank you to one of our challengers, please go to each blog and put your name down on the relevant post to be in with a chance of winning a Prize (Party bag candy or PBC)

To keep it fair, there are a few rules that apply:
You are only eligible to enter each DT members PBC once, and ONLY if you've already taken part in this weeks challenge!
We want to thank Sketch Saturday challengers so this is why it's only open to SS entrants!
(we will be checking! and all entries that are not eligible will be deleted)

Each PBC will close at 8:00 AM (UK time) on Friday 3rd June,

However, the normal Sketch Saturday challenge will run until 11:59PM on the Friday evening as normal, so if you are too late for a PBC you can still win an AWESOME prize!

So, do you want to know what the fabulous prize is by The Craft Barn ?

Well, we have a BUMPER PRIZE for this weeks challenge winner!

Fabulous right???
Would you like to spend a crafty day (or two!) at The Craft Barn?
Over the weekend of Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th of June they will be holding another EXTRAVAGANZA weekend, 
They are really exciting weekends and are very popular, this year will be no exception, as they will have 24 demonstrators in attendance!
This year the theme will be 'The Best of British', focussing on products manufactured in the UK.The demonstrations are great for picking up tips and techniques, and best of all the demos are FREE, and run continuously throughout both days, so you don't need to book in advance - just turn up and watch! :)

HERE is the link again with all details about the extravaganza weekend.

OK, here is our Birthday sketch...

And here's my creation....

As I've mentioned before, I've been playing with my Sewing Machine alot...
so rather than make a bag out of paper, I thought I'd make an actual bag!
it even has a little pocket on the front... which fits an ipod!!
so its quite useful really!!
its only diddy, but is big enough to fit some lovely crafty bits in for one lucky winner!
Want to win my bag and its contents??
Enter this weeks Sketch Saturday challenge following Jo's fab sketch, and then come back and pop your name down with inlinkz below (please link to your entry, not just your blog)
remember this candy closes at 8:00am(UK time) FRIDAY
Good luck!!

OMG this one's brilliant. Such a cutie of a bag. I'm guessing you stamped & coloured on the front material - if so I'm amazed, colouring is perfect - How'd ya do that then? No bleed! Amazing! My effort this week isn't anywhere as stunning as yours, but here it is anyway,

Love these challenges, Jx

Heidi said...

Love this image and coupled with the yellow gingham it is perfect. This baggy would take me ages to make, but I too have just got my sewing machine out and have decided that I need to use it more than once or twice a year. Call it a late spring resolution or something. Hugs Heidi x
