Stretch N' Bubbles 1st EVER BLOG HOP!!!


Welcome to the StretchNBubbles Sketch Challenge Blog Hop.
If you came here from Stretch N' Bubbles blog you're in the right place. If you stumbled upon this hop by accident, go to the SNB blog and start there. Be sure to leave comments on all the DTs posts along the way to be eligible for some great prizes!
StretchNBubbles is excited to announce their new Weekly Sketch Challenge. Each week there will be a new sketch designed by ME for you to play along with. You can use ANY StretchNBubbles image (if you don't have any, you can pick up a new freebie every Wednesday) combine that image and the SNB sketch with any other challenge of your choice. Post your entry to the SNB Sketch Challenge Blog and you're in the running for a weekly top three award. A random winner will be chosen each week as well and that person will win any SNB image of their choice.

As you can see on my design.. I flipped my own sketch..lol.... I wanted to use the Bird Balloon digital stamp which is new to Stretch N' Bubbles digital stamps.... for my project I cut my squares to 1 3/4 inches squared, sewed them down.. oh distressed them all first.. :) I wrote a few little words on some scraps of white paper I had, chalked the word BIRD in Bird-day with pink chalk.. I colored my digital stamp with copic markers, I then used a darker color copic marker to make the stripes and the swirls on the present.. I added 3d puffy paint to the balloon and added gems to the top of the card.. :)

Be sure to leave a comment here on this post. I'll choose a winner from all the comments on Wednesday, April 14th and that person will win the image I used in my card. Leave comments on all the DT's posts along the hop and you can win the images they used too. Once you've made your way through the hop, you'll be in the running for the overall blog hop winner which means FOUR SNB images of your choice.
Your next stop is Mia's blog..
After you've visited all the DT's blogs and left them comments, we invite you to play along in the first ever SNB Sketch Challenge. Hope to see you there!!!
