Challenge 1!

Welcome to the very first Fetch A Sketch challenge! Jenny and I (Ruth) have been on pins so we are quite glad today is finally here! We are a bi-weekly Monday sketch challenge and we hope that our sketches will inspire you to create! You can make anything you like as long as the sketch is followed!

For our launch we have two wonderful and very generous sponsors:

Anice from Funky Hand has offered the following as a prize:

Our Betty Clear Acrylic Stamps - Your Special Day
Button Pack - Remember December

And Nikky from Polkadoodles has offered the following prize:
Sugar Birdies Collectors Edition cd
Fairy Flutterby Rubber Stamp - Gracie

For our first challenge there will be two winners drawn randomly. The closing date is Sunday 10 July at 12noon GMT and the two winners will be announced on Monday 18 July.

The sketch that we are asking you to follow is:
You can rotate it, flip it, resize it and add embellishments or a sentiment where ever you want, just as long as we can see the elements of the sketch.
