Fetch A Sketch is One!

It's our First Birthday over at Fetch A Sketch!  Time really has flown by and we've shared some fab sketches along the way and also been very lucky with some generous sponsors.

And because it is our Birthday, some of the generous sponsors are offering some prizes to some lucky commenters!  We have 5 prizes so that means 5 comments will be randomly picked from the challenge blog.  If you want to know more about the prizes, just pop over to Fetch A Sketch!

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning one of the prizes is to leave a comment on each of the blogs in the hop and finally back at Fetch A Sketch.  If you fancy being a follower then do so, but it is not a requirement.

The closing date for comments to be left is Tuesday 3 July at 12noon GMT so that gives you just over a week to get hopping!  We will announce the winners on Wednesday 11 July.

The regular Fetch A Sketch gals are joined by previous (and current!) Guest Designers and the hop list is:

Don't forget to leave a comment as you pass through on each blog otherwise you won't be entered into the draw for one of our sponsor prizes!
We've also looked back through our back catalogue and picked a favourite sketch and by using sponsor images and papers we've created something.  I've gone for the sketch from challenge 6:

And used Harold Hammock from Dude Time Doodles who has been coloured with Promarkers and papers from Polkadoodles - Britannia download.  I've used a Nestabilities die to cut the shape and added some buttons and embroidery thread from my stash for detail.

Good luck with the hop and don't forget to leave a comment!
