Fetch A Sketch First Birthday Blog Hop

Good morning folks and welcome to the Fetch A Sketch blog hop to celebrate the first birthday of Jenny and Ruth's fabulous challenge blog which as I'm sure you've guessed is all about sketches! Happy Birthday Fetch A Sketch and my very best wishes to Jenny and Ruth for a second year of great challenges.
I'm thrilled to bits to have been asked to take part in the hop and have made some inspiration for you using a totally gorgeous image by one of the lovely sponsors, Christy of Tiddly Inks, together with papers from Polka Doodles also generously sponsoring the birthday hop.


I'm sure you can see now why I love the image being a little Alice fixated lol. I printed her out on to cartridge paper, colouring her with Aquamarkers and adding a little detail with Promarkers and Prismacolor pencils. I used the sketch from Week 15 as my inspiration and followed this using papers from the Polka Doodles Wonderland CD.
I made the faux buttons for the card using die cut flowers coloured with Distress inks and embossed with sparkly embossing powder. I pierced 2 holes in each and tied some brown linen thread through the holes. I made a computer generated sentiment cut out with the same die set and coloured with a blue Promarker.

If you're taking part in the hop (which you should as there are some fab prizes!) then you should have arrived here from Debbie's blog and now you need to hop on over to

Don't forget to leave a comment too so that I know you've popped by.
If, however, you've only just seen this then please click on the Fetch A Sketch link at the top for all the details.
Good luck!
