SSS87-December 18....PRIZE WEEK!

Happy Saturday, sketch lovers! Christmas is only one week away....are YOU ready?? ;)

This week's sketch is our monthly sketch with a spin and PRIZE but this month we have something a bit different in store for you. My good friend Chris Dickinson is on the DT for the Technique Junkies Newsletter and a few weeks ago she emailed me asking if we would like to have a Technique Junkies sponsored prize for one of our upcoming sketches. I have been a huge fan of Technique Junkies Newsletter for years and have been a TJN vendor for almost as long as Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has been in business. I appreciate all of the hard work Pat Huntoon (friend and the owner of the publication) puts into the newsletter and love being a Technique Junkie myself :) so I was delighted to accept the offer. Here's a bit of info about TJN.....

The Technique Junkie Newsletter was started in 2002 as a resource for Rubber Stamping Techniques. The Newsletter is published every-other month, featuring 15 or more stamping techniques in step-by-step format. Each technique has a corresponding pictorial online, and a full page of inspirational artwork by the talented Technique Junkie Newsletter Designers. To date, over 600 Techniques have been published, by far the largest and most extensive library of rubber stamping tutorials available.

The fabulous prize they have for one of our lucky sketch participants this week is their brand new Fancy Folds and Motion Paper Crafts CD (Value $17.95) AND a one year on-line subscription to the Technique Junkie Newsletter!

WOW! What a generous prize! THANK YOU, PAT!

BUT there is a bit more :).....not only will this week's sketch winner receive the aforementioned prizes, but she will also win any TWO Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps clear stamp sets she chooses :)..... Just our way of saying MERRY CHRISTMAS and THANK YOU for playing along with The Sweet Stop :).

Now, before we get to this week's sketch with a spin, I have some wonderful cards to share with you from last week's sketch participants. Check out this eye candy......

Piali made this adorable penguin the sweet image and all that sparkle :).

Tracy made this precious Christmas card.....OMW, I love the image, her coloring and all the yummy extras :)

Sheena made this adorable Christmas card.....again with the super cute image and lovely coloring :)!

Thanks so much ladies for playing along!

Be sure to grab this week's sketch and play along......Next week we just might feature YOU......and if we do, not only will you get your moment in the spotlight, but you'll even get a nifty badge for your blog to let everyone know you were featured here :).

Now how about this week's fabulous sketch.....

Don't forget to include the spin (stitching) if you want to be eligible for the prize and......

Just a few things to keep in mind as you play....

~You do NOT have to use Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps images to play along, but we sure love when you do :).

~You may flip or rotate the sketch, change or replace the shapes, but please make sure the general layout is recognizable.
