Sketch Saturday - Sketch #300 and BLOG HOP!

Simon Says Stamp is sponsoring a very exciting sketch week for us at Sketch Saturday!  Jo Edwards, the creator of Sketch Saturday is with us as a Guest DT member and we're bringing back the very first sketch that kicked off the blog to celebrate the Sketch 300th sketch.













I wanted to use something extra special this week because 300 sketches is quite a testimony to the longevity of Jo's original idea for the challenge.  I decided to color up the gorgeous image Hydrangea Fairy from the Etsy shop, Aurora Wings.
To mark this celebration, Deb has organized a BLOG HOP with candy hidden along the HOP.  You just have to visit each stop and leave a comment.  One person will be chosen from each of the hidden candy blogs and announced in a special post at 7:20 a.m. UK time on March 15th.

 Clicking on the picture below will take you through the Hop.  If you arrived here from Vanessa's blog, the next stop is Alex.  Be sure to leave a comment on each blog (including mine) - you won't know whose blog has candy until next week's post.  Good luck and have fun hopping!  After you are inspired by the DT, make your own card and enter the sketch challenge HERE!
