Freshly Made Sketches #100 - A Sketch by Cindy

Welcome to the 100th sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week we've got a special celebration going on!  Cindy is our hostess and since she was the first ever Queen it is only fitting!  We hope you play along with us this week because we've got prizes up for grabs to random winners!

Hi!  Cindy here, and I'm both honored and excited to be hosting our 100th challenge!  Together, we've decided to use the first-ever sketch for Freshly Made Sketches that debuted almost two years ago, on September 7, 2011.  The sketch was designed by the incredibly talented creator of the Freshly Made Sketches challenge blog, Lesley Croghan.   CLICK HERE to see that first challenge, with both the Design Team's and participant's entries.  I still remember how thrilled I was to find out that I had been chosen as the very first Queen of Clean!

We hope everyone has a chance to play along this week because we've got prizes to give away!  Look at all the fantastic goodies donated by our very own FMS design team!

Linda Callahan - Just Thinking Stampin' Up! stamp set and 24 6x6 sheets of DSP
Allisa Chilton - Sweet Life Close to My Heart stamp set
Cindy Hall - Monster Munchies Stampin' Up! stamp set and 24 6x6 sheets of DSP
Jen Mitchell - Seasonal Sayings Stampin' Up! stamp set and 44 6x6 sheets of DSP

Linda Suarez - Silent Night A Muse Studio stamp set
Jennifer Timko - Dictionary Stampin' Up! stamp set and 24 6x6 sheets of DSP

To help us celebrate this milestone we've asked some dear friends, our previous designers, to join us and we're thrilled that they are here!

And, as usual, our design team has some beautiful cards to share with you, including one from our creator Lesley.

We have a few simple rules to keep things fun and fair for all of our players:
  1. Please use any crafting product you would like to use.
  2. Feel free to combine our sketch with up to THREE other challenges, except another sketch challenge.
  3. Please add a DIRECT link to your blog when adding your card to the linky below.  If uploading to a public gallery please use keyword FMS100.
  4. Please include our sketch and a link back to Freshly Made Sketches on your post.
  5. Have fun!
This challenge will end on Monday August 26th at Noon (PDT). On Tuesday August 27th, we will be announcing the winners of the prizes as well as the winner of this week's sketch challenge who will known as the "Queen of Clean" and each Design Team Member will choose one "Princess".
