It's Birthday Bash Time!

CONTEST CLOSED. Thanks for joining us!

Welcome to So Sketchy!'s first birthday celebration! What you don't know is that it's MY birthday today too! Cool huh??!! I turn the BIG 33 today! So we're actually celebrating DOUBLE today.

So to celebrate both birthdays, I gathered together some of my fabulous designers from the past year and they have all created some fun birthday cards using their favourite card sketches from the blog.

And just for being here, you can WIN some fabulous prizes! YUP! All you have to do to win is leave a comment on EACH of the participating So Sketchy Sista's blogs and then come back here and leave a post with:
  1. your first name & last initial,
  2. your location (state/province & country) *open world wide* and
  3. some means of getting a hold of you (ie: email or blog link).
So make sure you have commented on all the Sista's blogs and then leave your information below. All comments are moderated first so if your post doesn't show up right away, no problem. Give it 2 hours for me moderate it.

The prize draw will take place on Thursday June 4 after 10pm MST so you have until then to complete the round of blogs. The winner will be posted on the blog sometime after the 5th of June.

So let's get along with the celebrating.....

Your first So Sketchy Sista's blog to visit is........KRISTII.

Just in case we get into some trouble tonight, here's the blog rotation just in case:
1. Kristii
2. Dawne
3. Virginie
4. Cherie
5. Jana (E)
6. Leah
7. Christine
8. Tonya
9. Jessica
10. Abbie
11. Nicole
12. Melanie

Good luck and have fun!!!

Ok, am I too early for the blog hop? The second person on the list doesn't have a post about it, and I'm not sure if the third one does or not because it's not in english. Let me know, thanks!
