Sunday Sketch & Stamp #1

Well, it's finally here - our first every challenge! Are you as excited as we are?

This is our first sketch, designed by Maggie Bob:

Sunday Sketch & Stamp: Challenge #1

You can put your sentiment anywhere on the card, and rotate it round, even change the oval for another shape like a circle, but the basic elements of the sketch must be obvious. and don't forget - you must use stamping somewhere!

If you take part in this fortnight's challenge, you could win this fabulous prize, provided by our wonderful sponsors from Crafty Ribbons, who really do have the most amazing collection of ribbons I've ever seen. They've given us this wonderful prize for one lucky person to win:

That's a set of 6 (count 'em - 6!) of Crafty Ribbon's RibbonBoxes! Wow!

To enter the challenge, simply make a card following the sketch, post it on your blog and post the direct link to it using Mr Linky below. Don't leave your entry in a comment, although feel free to leave a comment if you've got something to say! If you don't have a blog, email a picture of your card to and we'll put it in our online gallery, and enter you into the challenge. Entry closes at midnight (GMT) on Saturday May 9th - good luck.

Now, here are the wonderful DT cards to give you some inspiration.

We hope we've inspired you, and that you have as much fun with the sketch as we did!

*** Congratulations to our blog hop winners Debra, Katie, Carol, Jenni & Nicki. Your prizes will be on their way shortly ***

If you are entering the challenge, please put your name and a direct link to the post with your challenge card in to Mr Linky below. Please do not just link to the main page of your blog, as this makes it more difficult for us to find your card - thanks.

** Challenge #1 is now closed. Thank you for all your entries. The winner has been announced in the Challenge #2 post above. **
