Freshly Made Sketches #200 - A Celebration!

Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches!  Each week, one member of our design team creates a sketch for you to try, the twist is to keep your project clean-lined and fresh! The "Clean Team" has come up with some "Freshly Made" designs to get you in the spirit! We are so excited to visit your blog and to see what YOU create with our sketch!

We are thrilled to be celebrating our 200th sketch and we wanted to thank YOU, our loyal followers.  You generously share your talents with us week in and week out.  You inspire conversations about "how did they do that" and you lighten our wallets because we just have to get that product you showed us.  To thank you, we asked some of the crafting community's best known companies to sponsor us this week.  Not to sponsor the team though...to sponsor YOU!!  We are so appreciative of all you give and share!  We are grateful to our sponsors and we can't wait to see the inspiration you will share this week.

  34. Congratulations on 200 sketches! What a fun party! I just linked up my card! I mentioned above that I'm new here and I noticed one of the guidelines is to comment on other entries, so I picked 25 of my favorites and left them some love. I am wondering if this is like a blog hop and if we are supposed to comment on all entries? Please let me know so I can come back and do that.

    It's a fun sketch - I love the DT cards - such gorgeous inspiration - I left some love for them as well! Thank you for a fun celebration!
