Week #134 - 18th December - sponsored by Tickled Pink Stamps

Before announcing this weeks challenge, we have an announcement...

Sadly, today we bid a fond farewell to Catherine, who has decided to step down from the Design Team :(
I know that it wasn't an easy decision for Catherine to make and she will be greatly missed from our team.
This weeks card is her last one for Sketch Saturday, and is as fabulous as all her cards are.
Catherine, THANK YOU SO MUCH and we all wish you much love and happiness & best wishes for the future xx

On to this weeks challenge, which is our last challenge for 2010 because next Saturday is Christmas Day!! :)

We are very honoured to welcome a new sponsor this week, Tickled Pink Stamps

Here's a bit of info from our sponsor...

"Tickled Pink Stamps first started out as Magnolia Down Under in 2009, but in April 2010 Magnolia Down Under was taken over to Tickled Pink Stamps and supplied a larger range of stamps. What was the reason for this? I am Kellie the owner and founder of Tickled Pink Stamps and when I first started stamping I fell for anything and everything Magnolia, I had to have them. While I still share the same love for them to this day, I started to see more amazing stamps by talented designers world wide and I just had to share them around Australia and this is how Tickled Pink Stamps was born, aiming to be Australia's No. 1 Stamp supplier of all things cute and Tickled Pink....

Tickled Pink Stamps now has their VERY own range of cute and They are a tad different from the normal cute but we all LOVE to be different and stand out, and these amazing designs will make any creation GORGEOUS!"

Tickled Pink Stamps is home of the fabulous Lil Lolita and Lil Lad Ranges
You can see all the newest products available by clicking HERE
Tickled Pink Stamps is currently having a CHRISTMAS STAMP SALE! With 30% - 50% OFF ALL CHRISTMAS STAMPS. Better get in quick because once they are GONE they are GONE!

Kellie is so generous, she is offering this weeks challenge winner their own choice of 3 rubber Tickled Pink Stamps.

Absolutely fabulous eh?! Thank you Kellie! xx
