Hop on Board.... the StretchNBubbles Blog Hop!

Woo Woo!  Welcome to the StretchNBubbles Sketch Challenge Blog Hop! If you came here from Mia's blog, you are in the right place!  If you stumbled upon this Blog Hop by accident, please go to the StretchNBubbles blog and start from there. do be sure to leave comments on ALL of the stops along the way,so you can be eligible for some great prizes!

(ahem)  StretchNBubbles is excited to announce their new Weekly Sketch Challenge.  Each week there will be a new sketch designed by Alison, for YOU to play along with.  You can use ANY StretchNBubbles image (if you don't have any, you can pick up a new freebie every Wednesday!), and combine that image and the SNB sketch, with any other challenge of your choice.  Post your entry to the SNB Sketch Challenge Blog and you're in the running for the weekly Top Three Award. A random winner will be chosen each week as well, and that person will win any SNB image of their choice!

For this our momentous StretchNBubbles Blog Hop, the design team is using SNB Sketch Number 1, which you can see here.

I have created with the SNB image Spread Your Wings and Fly...   I have used only part of this dazzling image.... here it is in it's full splendour:   

Other ingredients I have used:
DCWV cardstock  (from the two Latte stacks), Giant Pink Bling, Flocking (Stampendous, in Lovely Lilac), Sakura Glaze Pens, Sakura Stardust Pens, and a Piggy Le Plume Pen (brown)

Here's my card!
Be sure to leave a comment here in this post... I will choose a winner from all the comments on April 13 USA Mountain Time (to coincide with the whole hop - I'm in Australia GMT +10, so it will be my April 14!) and that person will win the image I have used in my card (shown above).  Leave comments on all the posts along the hop, and you can win the images they have used too!  Once you have made your way through the hop, you'll be in the running for the overall blog hop winner, which means FOUR (4) SNB images of you choice! Woohoo!

Your next stop is at Jane's blog.  After you've visited all of the DT's blogs and left them comments, we invite you to play along in the FIRST EVER SNB Sketch Challenge!
