Challenge Rules

A new sketch will be put on this blog every Saturday morning at 08:00 GMT and will run until 19:00 GMT the following Friday evening. All times stated are GMT (UK time) and you can find out what time it is in the UK by looking at the clock in our sidebar.

You can rotate the sketch and you can resize the elements if you want to, but please don't move the elements around too much, as long as the original sketch layout can be recognized then that's fine. If we don't recognize the sketch then you cannot win the prize, after all this is a SKETCH challenge blog.

Only NEW work is allowed to enter our challenges. Please do not back link to earlier work.  You can use any materials you like to make anything you like, a card, a box top, gift bag, scrapbook page, an ATC, etc. Whatever you make is fine as long as we can see the sketch design in whatever you make.
You can have up to 3 entries each week, but each entry must be different (and the sketch must be used each time) and each entry must have its own blog post too.

You MUST add a link back to Sketch Saturday within each post to be eligible to win our prize.
Please leave a link on link up so we can see your work. If for any reason you don't see a link up box at the end of the post, please come back a little later, as any problems will be hopefully sorted within a few hours of the challenge going live.

PLEASE NOTE: Only DIRECT LINKS to your entry (actual blog post, not just to your blog address) will be eligible for the prize. Links to blogs that do not comply with this easy rule, and/or would have to search & scroll to find your entry may be deleted. If we do decide to keep the link, then you will not be eligible for the prize and another number will be drawn.

Please Be Aware:
Some entries left on our link up are direct links to other crafting communities. Some of these communities require people to log in or (sign up) to see the card entered for that weeks’ challenge. If you are a member of such a group, please be aware that others may not be members and cannot see your entry. Unfortunately, if we cannot see your entry, you cannot be entered into our prize draw, sorry, but we do thank you for joining in with us and hope that you understand why.

Winner Info
Each Saturday the winner of the previous weeks challenge will be announced at 7:30am GMT - 30 minutes before the new challenge goes live.

Please scroll down to see if you are our winner and then leave a comment on the winners post. This ensures that we know that you are aware you have won and that we can expect an email from you and can check our spam folders. You have two weeks from the close of the challenge to claim your prize for that challenge.

We hope that you enjoy working with the sketches, and please remember to check out the awesome work by our Design Team. Also, please check out the links from our generous sponsors. Without their support, we could not continue.
