Stuck on U Sketches BLOG HOP


Hi everyone...if you have arrived here from SYLVIE's BLOG you are on the right track...if not hop on back to the Stuck on U Sketches blog to get the list. 

We are extremely excited to have you all visiting on a historic
day for Stuck on U Sketches! 
Today's post marks our 100th sketch!
How awesome is that, right?
And to celebrate in a big way we have invited our entire Design Team
to join in our sketch challenge! 

Now we just couldn't let a big day like today go without a bit of a treat
for you all so we have a few wonderful sponsors for our hop!

Our very own Lisa Norris of Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon

Regina Easter of The Cutting Cafe

And two stamp sets from Stephanie of Whimsical Designs:


Our only expectation is to be a follower of Stuck on U Sketches
and leave a little love along the way for each team member (this will take
some time so our hop is a week long!) We have 3 sponsors and will
pick 3 winners and we'll have those to post for you on Friday, February 8th. 

And some additional sweetness...many of our Design Team
members will be offering blog candy on their personal blogs as well!
So the chances to get a lil' something is pretty awesome, not to mention
all the eye candy with the great projects to see! 

Here is our sketch designed by Leah Schaeffer


and here is my take on it.


a couple of close ups:


I also have my own BLOG CANDY to give away....all you have to do it become a follower of my blog. I will announce my blog winner on Friday Feb 8th so make sure to check back and see if you win. Dusty Attic chippys and Prima masks. YUMMY!


well thanks for stopping by and your next hop along the way is
