Good morning lovely bloggers!

Are you ready for some fun? Yes!!! It’s our one year anniversary. 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.

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 prizes to this fabulous week. The winning images will be awarded at the end of the Blog Hop.

Here's the sketch Arlana has whipped up for our anniversary blog hop!

Don't you just love these sketches? It takes all the guess work out of what to do with your canvas.

Digi Stamp Boutique is sponsoring this blog hop anniversary and you have the chance to win free digi images as the grand prize.

I really enjoy Sally Ann's digital images, as they are so much fun to ink up. I chose Malcolm Mouse - isn't he a cute little fella? I have to admit, trimming around that tail was real close to getting nipped off...hehee...but the square I'd originally cut around him didn't work with the sketch. But it worked out okay. :-)

Enjoy hopping around!

Happy Crafting! :~)

Hello Terry, This paper is so fun and I love how you used it behind the mouse too! I am always amazed at how you cut out your images. I am with Deanne....the tail would have been gone long ago if I was cutting around the image... That definitely takes skill! Happy Anniversary!
