First Birthday for Sweet Stampin'

Good morning one and all. 

This is a very special day for Sweet Stampin'.  It is our First Birthday!  So we're celebrating., and WELCOME to the Sweet Stampin' First Birthday Blog Hop.  More about that in a minute. 

We have a sketch for you all this week.  I love sketches, it makes it so easy to combine lots of different elements, particularly if you go over the top like I do sometimes.  Our sponsor is Di's Digi Downloads, and this is one of her beautiful images.  I have coloured with Copics.  The papers are from Bearly Mine Designs using a couple of the Christmas ranges.  The flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, and the leaf and swirl die are Magnolia DooHickey's Cutting Dies.  I have embellished with some Swaroski crystals as well, but they don't show up very.

I also have some surpise Sweet candy on offer for one lucky blogger!
For the chance to win this candy... just leave a comment here and I will choose someone at random at the end of the week. If you would like to become a follower and pop back again from time to time, that would be even better.  Don't forget you need to enter this weeks Sketch Challenge at Sweet Stampin'  to be eligible to win any Design Team Candy!

Do check back to see if you were the lucky one.
