Morning Sketch Saturday Fans!

Thanks so much for playing with us last week. Don't forget to check the post under this one, to see if you're the lucky winner of a pack of FlexMarkers from The Craft Barn.

Of course you know us Saturday Girls insist that Jo takes the first Saturday of each month off, so this week it's my (Faye) turn to be Hostess with the Mostess. Hiya!

Our lovely sponsor this week is:

If you've not been to Sew Sweet before, you're in for a treat. The shop is crammed full of delish buttons, gorgeous twine and pretty ribbons. There is a massive selection of designer felt, cute brads and there are even Make Your Own kits. But don't take my word for it, go take a sneaky peeky...!

Sew Sweet are offering one lucky winner, chosen at random, a £10 Gift Voucher to spend in store.

And now, without further ado, from The House of Fluff, I bring you this week's Sketch:

Our Guest Designer for the month, is the owner of Sew Sweet and is also a (very talented) face some of you regular Sketchers will know from Sketch Saturday past. I am delighted to welcome Emma, with this fantabulous creation:

And here's what The Saturdays have created to inspire you:

Now it's the turn of you talented crafters to show us your cards,
