Challenge 56 - A Sketch

Hi everyone. I hope you all enjoyed the Easter weekend and now we (in the UK) have another one to look forward to with a Royal Wedding as well!

We have some important news this week but first I want to announce the winner of our last 'Vintage' challenge. We had a fabulous number of entries and your cards were so beautiful. Random.Org was used to select a winner and he chose

No., 139, Jo-Jo's Scraps

Congratulations Joe-Anne. Please contact us (email in the sidebar) so we can arrange for you to receive your prize.

And so we get on to our 56th and FINAL challenge. Yes, that's right, this will be the last Truly Scrumptious challenge for a while. I started this challenge blog in February 2009 and I have been thrilled with the support it has received from the crafting community. But circumstances change and my family and new business are taking so much of my time now, leaving very little for anything else.

I would like to thank all the fabulous Design Team ladies who have worked so hard to produce beautiful cards for the blog. Also a big thank you to our sponsors who provide fabulous prizes for each of our challenges - thank you for your continued support. And a big thank you to everyone who has joined in our challenges. It has been wonderful to see your entries and visit so many blogs over the last 2+ years.

I do hope you will join in our last challenge which is a sketch:

Our sponsor for this challenge is Stitchy Bear Stamps. If you haven't visited their store then you really should. They have an amazing range of really gorgeous digi designs - you will be spoilt for choice. One lucky winner will receive a $10 voucher to spend in the store.

This challenge will run for ONE WEEK and will close at midnight on Tuesday 3rd May. Please use the Linky tool to upload your card. The winners details will be posted on the blog on Wednesday 4th May.

Before I sign off I want to say a big thank you to everyone who has joined in a Truly Scrumptious challenge over the last 2+ years. It has been wonderful to visit so many blogs and get to 'meet' so many talented crafters.
