Happy First Birthday, Sweet Sketch Wednesday!

This sweet image is Ballet Suzie from Digi Stamp Boutique. I just had to use her for this week because It’s our one year anniversary. Are you ready for some fun? Yes!!! We are so happy to have you join us in the fun. Yes, it’s been one year since Sweet Sketch Wednesday arrived in Blogland. It’s hard to believe as the year has passed by so quickly. Thanks to all of our dedicated players and followers and to the best Design Team ever. Come on and let’s have some sweet fun.

So, pull up a chair, grab a refreshment of your choice and join us in Sweet Sketch Wednesday’s Anniversary Blog Hop. Digi Stamp Boutique is our main sponsor for this celebration…offering 12 prizes in all. Since it was our anniversary we decided to ask our past sponsors (Inktegrity, Bugaboo Stamps, Prairie Fairy Designs, Fresh Brewed Designs, Busy Beauties Boutique, Bee Crafty, Soft Pencil Digital Stamps, Delicious Doodles, My Grafico and The Stamping Boutique) and we were overwhelmed with their support to celebrate. They will also be adding their prize to this fabulous week. The winning images will be awarded at the end of the Blog Hop. Let’s get hopping!!!

Here are the rules of the contest for a chance to win:
1. Comment on each of the Design Team blogs and become a follower.
2. Comment on Digi Stamp Boutique blog and become a follower.
Return to Sweet Sketch Wednesday after you have completed the blog hop and leave a comment and become a follower.
4. By doing this, you will have a chance to win an image from Digi Stamp Boutique or one of our other sponsors image. That means you will have 22 chances to win a prize as there will be two prizes on each Design Team Blog.
5. After participating in the Anniversary Hop, create a card with the Anniversary Hop Sketch or create an altered item. Then post it on Inlinkz. Completing all five steps will qualify you for the Grand Prize from Digi Stamp Boutique on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog.

6. For those that complete 1 through 5, you can also have another chance to win another sweet prize by participating in Arlana’s “Blast from the Past!” Instructions for participating in the “Blast of the Past” are posted on Arlana’s blog at

This is the Sweet Sketch 53 that you will use for your card or altered item.

A special thanks to our main sponsor Digi Stamp Boutique and to our many other sponsors who are sponsoring us this week and who have supported us throughout the past year!
