It's Sweet Stampin' saturday- Sketch!!

Good morning sweet stampers..

We hope you are well and that you enjoyed playing in the mud with us last week lol!!

I didn't play in the mud...however I do have a little story... We took my 17 month old Nephew to a play centre... what fun...until that is we gained an older child who told me he knew 'the best way' to the BIG slide..now for a kiddie play centre this slide was like a death slide lol... Now in my head I though best way = quickest way...well 20 minutes later and whole circuit of the play centre I (lets just say VERY red faced ) made it to the slide lol... Hmmm kids eh??

So this week team Carrie are playing with one of Jo's wonderful sketch's. Now before I show you the sketch I will just let you know about this weeks prize!!

Spotlight and Three Prize Winners. Woooo Hoooo!

Happy New Year Sweet Stampers!
The spotlight is a little bit late this week because as Carrie mentioned, I was set free for a couple of days for good behaviour. That behaviour didn't last so I have been re-captured and am back to write this post!!!
So........as it was a two week challenge running over Christmas, we need to pick out two Spotlight winners. Arrrrgggggh this is so hard as we had so many FANTABULOUS entries and two pick just two is quite frankly a nightmare.

Now onto the winners of our fantastic sponsors
prizes and we have not one, not two but THREE to pick out this week.

So we have some very exciting sponsors...

This months sponsor is Whimsy stamps


Whimsy Stamps is a family owned business and online store located in the United States. We carry a line of whimsical and fun rubber stamps made from deeply etched red rubber and mounted on EZ mount foam. We also have a digital stamp collection with new releases on the 1st of each month. We've recently added an online gallery for our DT and registered users where you can find lots of samples using our stamps. We also have an inspirations blog with daily postings and product info and our featured stamper Saturdays!



And this weeks sponsor is Tiffany Doodles who are also opening there new online store today!!

Hi! I’m Tiffany Richards, owner of Tiffany Doodles. My background is in Web Design & Development as well as Photography. I have been self employed for eight years and have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my work!

Since childhood, I’ve always been creative and taken great pleasure in drawing and painting. A little more than a year ago, I discovered the stamping and paper crafting world and just fell in love!! In a very short order, I began transforming some of my drawings and doodles into “digis”. It has truly been a joy to share them with folks. I get so thrilled every time I see something new that someone has created with one of my stamps!! Each design is like a child of mine and it’s really neat to see it all grown up and out in the world being all it can be…LOL! I offer a new freebie every Thursday and we do a new card challenge every 7th of the month!

All of my digital stamps are originally created by me and of the multiple styles I offer, most are hand-drawn images. Some are brushed up in Photoshop using the pen tool to produce very clean lines and others are left with a sketchy, rustic, hand-drawn look. An additional digi-style is one that I’ve dubbed as PhotoSketches and these are images from my own photographs which I transformed into sketches with a little help from Photoshop. These beauties make splendid realistic images for stamping!

Who are offering 5 images to the winner!!

So onto the DT's creations...

Lynn our wonderful Guest spotlighter:
Snow Patrol's Chasing cars (the line -Show me a garden that's bursting into life)

Alie: Twinkle twinkle little star!!

Cheryl Ann - with Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville!!

Val - With Chris DeBurgh's Lady in red!!

Fi: - Pussycat Dolls with Jai ho!!

Faye(Fluff) with it's my party (and i'll cry if I want to)

Jo with 'Get this party Started' by Pink


And Me (Carrie!!) with Eliza Doolittle's Skinny Jeans!!

Now we have set Loopy free this weekend so the Spotlight will be coming on Monday this week...so pop back then to check out 3 winners and the spotlight!!
