Hi everyone,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY A Die for a Sketch (Mid-Month Inspiration)

I have drawn the winner of my card I am giving away from the comments on my post on 5th May.  Eileen   can you drop me a line with your address please and I will pop it into the post for you.

I am here just to remind you all that there is a lovely Sketch at A Die for a Sketch challenge this month.  This month marks a very special occasion.  It is the birthday of the Challenge.  There are several sponsor's, Guest Designers and lots to see so please do pop across and take a look at the lovely inspiration and join in the fun of the Challenge.

Simply  follow the Sketch and include at least one die-cut details of which can be found here.   

The only stipulations are to follow the Sketch and to use at least one die.   I always love working to Sketches so this is just ideal for me, and this one was a joy to work to.

Here are our generous Sponsor's:
