You Inspire Me! -Sketch Saturday Challenge #197 -Sponsored By Saturated Canary!!

Happy crafty weekend all! 
I hoping to get lots of crafty stuff done this week since hubs has both days off and we have absolutely nothing planned! So it's going to be a fun relaxing crafty weekend for me...or I hope!


I'm so excited to be hosting this weeks challenge at Sketch first time ever since becoming one of the Saturday Girls! One week a month Jo gets a little break and one of us girls step in to try our hand at designing a sketch for you all to play along with! We also get to find our own sponsor and I have got an amazing one for you this week!

Here my sketch! 
Hope you all like it?? :D

And have you guessed who our sponsor could be??? Yes! Krista from "Saturated Canary" will be offering one lucky winner their choice of 2 digis from her shop!! 

Her images are amazing, she is one very talented lady! I was so thrilled Krista agreed to sponsor my DT week!! If you haven't had the chance to play with her images yet, you are definitely missing out!! 
Sending a big thank you and big hugs your way Krista!

And not only that, but Cor* from "FancyFree4Ever" has agreed to be our GDT for the whole month of March!! She is also one very talented lady! So be sure to stop by hers and the Saturday Girls blogs for some amazing inspiration!

Krista was so very generous and offered all the Saturday girls a freebie of their choice to play with this week! And I chose "Penny Ragamuffin"!! Isn't she sweet?!!

No sparkles, bling or glitter this time around! I know...I must be crazy? I thought it looked best left all natural to match the chosen DP! I embossed the piece behind Penny with my Floral Screen Cuttlebug embossing folder...not sure if the pics really capture it or not?

This stunning handmade flower was not made by me sadly...but made by a lovely crafter over at Etsy! Her shop is called "ABespokeTouch" and she has a gorgeous assortment of the blooms to choose from!
