Freshly Made Sketches #100

Today is an amazing day at Freshly Made Sketches!  We've reached

Sketch #100!  

Wow!  What a milestone!  And I am so excited to join in this special celebration.  Our very own Clean Team designer Cindy Hall was the very first Queen at Freshly Made Sketches, so it is only fitting that she be our hostess this week.

And it is only fitting that the Clean Team chose to use the very first sketch at Freshly Made Sketches for the 100th sketch challenge.  Sketch #1 debuted almost two years ago on September 7, 2011.  The sketch was designed by the very talented Lesley Croghan, who is also the creator of Freshly Made Sketches challenge blog.

In addition, past Freshly Made Sketches designers were invited to help us celebrate.  And I am thrilled they are joining us.  To see their entries, go to the Freshly Made sketches challenge blog.

Here is my card using Sketch #1:

Last week I got my box of new A Muse Studio Holiday catalog goodies.  I've been waiting for this little fellow!  And I love that he comes with a matching die.  I colored him with Copics and added Fun Flock to his hat, beard and gloves.  And how about that cheerful sentiment.  It's just one of the fun chalkboard-style sentiments in the new It's a Wonderful Life stamp set.  And, of course, I had to use the Peppermint Swirl stamp again.  I am going wear that stamp out!

And here is the sketch that started it all:

I really hope that you will have time to play with us this week because we have prizes to give away!  I am donating the new Silent Night stamp set from A Muse Studio for one lucky random winner.

Be sure to stop by Freshly Made Sketches and check out the wonderful creations from the Clean Team!  And see the other fun prizes that will given away!  

And don't forget to submit your own creation for a chance to win!  I'd love to see your take (or re-take) on Sketch #1!   

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
