Saturday posting - and a blog hop!

First of I want to welcome you to a blog hop over at Unscripted Sketches this week!
This is a very special day for us!
We are celebrating our 2-year anniversary,
this week is our 100th sketch!
So we're having a big ol' BLOG PARTY!

We know that, traditionally, gifts are given to the person having the anniversary, but since every week we already have the pleasure of having so many wonderful participants and followers (you're the reason we're here, after all!), we are going to give YOU something! That's right! YOU get the party gifts! You can qualify several different ways for several great prizes! If you're a stalker, this is the prefect time to come out of hiding and play along with us! :)

If you are just finding Unscripted Sketches, every Saturday morning we post a sketch for the week. Flip the sketch, rotate it… create a card, a scrapbook page, a wall hanging, digital, paper, fabric, paint, anything your imagination comes up with! There is no right or wrong way as long as you are using the Unscripted sketch as the inspiration for your creation!

This week is no exception! Plus, we have some special treats for you. Not only do we have another great sketch for you, the design team had adorable sponsor images to use! To follow with our party theme, our sponsor, Sparkle Creations, provided our design team with two super cute party images to work with.

YOU have a chance to win several prizes! Not only will there be several random drawings from everyone who posts a comment or a project, you can win one of two great rubber stamp prizes from our sponsor, Sparkle Creations! If you're a winner, one of these images will be mailed to you! Check out their website to see all the adorable stamps they have!

You can win one of these adorable rubber stamps from our sponsor in one of two ways:

The first way is to submit a project via Inlinkz at the bottom of the Unscripted Sketches blog by midnight EST on Friday, April 8th. One winner will be chosen at random from those who have posted their projects. (*Please see the prize disclaimer in the center panel.)


The second way is to hop through the designers' blogs for the blog hop and collect the letter clues along the way. Unscramble the letters and email the unscrambled phrase. DO NOT post it as a comment below. (Full details of the blog hop and word scramble game are below.)

You can also win a RAK! Names will be chosen from anyone who posts a comment or a project by Friday. These lucky winners will receive a special gift of goodies!

Post TWO projects (since it's our 2-year anniversary!) by Friday and you could also win a goody!

So, to summarize, here are the ways you can win a prize:

*win a rubber stamp from our sponsor by submitting a project via Inlinkz AND/OR email the correct phrase for the word scramble game.

*win a RAK by posting a comment or project.

*post TWO projects and you could win another goody!

*The deadline for all game entries, comments and links is midnight EST, Friday, April 8th.*


As you probably saw in the posts the last few weeks, we recently put out a call for new designers. We had a great response and there were so many talented ladies to choose from, the decision was not an easy one. But the decision has been made and we are thrilled to expand our team with eight new designers with a variety of backgrounds and talents. Our talented design team now extends from such exotic places as Australia to Estonia to the Netherlands- even Toledo, Ohio! :) Please take a moment to acquaint yourselves with our new designers. Click on their names to visit their blogs and find out more about them. Some of them were able to get a jump on it and are able to participate this week, but they will all have their big debut next week with sketch #101! We're excited to have them join us!

Please check on over at Unscripted to start the blog hop from the beginning. Here is the sketch and my card :

My clue is "K"

From here you will go to: Gardenia

Then this week over at Designed to Delight I have two cards for you. These are from a couple of the new images Faith has put out recently - the flowering water can and dancing in the rain.
