Week #188 - 31st December - Sponsored by The Craft Barn

Hello sketch fans!
Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas Day.
Did Santa bring you some lush new craft stash to play with?

So we wave goodbye to 2011 this evening

Personally, I'd like to thank my lovely friends, the totally awesome Saturday Girls (past & present), for their love, support and of course the outstanding work that they give each week, you girls are all amazing! xx

From the team as a whole, we'd like to thank our generous sponsors, our talented guest designers and of course we'd like to thank all of you, the challengers, for making Sketch Saturday all worthwhile.
A special thank you goes to Karita, who has taken the difficult decision to leave our design team for pastures new.
We are very sad to see her go, but we all wish her well in her other DT positions, they are very lucky to have her join them.
Karita, thank you so much for sharing your stunning creations with us, we'll miss you. Friends forever. xx

On behalf of all of The Saturdays... HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
We hope 2012 brings you good luck, good health and happiness.
