Birthday Blog Hop with Sunday Sketch and Stamp

If you're looking for the Unity Blog Hop, click HERE!
Looking for the 3 Girl JAM "All Things Spring" Blog Hop?  Click HERE!
I haven't been on the Sunday Sketch & Stamp team for too long, but the blog has been going for quite some time.  In fact, today is a celebration of sorts.  Today starts the 200th sketch, and therefore, the 200th challenge for the blog.  Woah! That's a lot of sketches, challenges, cards, entrants, and prizes.  Congratulations to Marie, the mastermind behind the Sunday Sketch & Stamp challenge blog.
Here's the line up for the hop -- it's the current team, some past members, and a few surprises.
You need to hop along and visit everyone on the list to see what they've created with any of our past 199 sketches, and make sure you leave a comment at each stop because there are some hidden prizes along the way!!


For this challenge, we can use any of the past 199 sketches to work with.  Plenty to choose from, for sure.
I used sketch #53:
With it, I created this:

The papers were won as a door prize at my local scrapbook store at Crop Night.  I've been saving that cloud paper for a project just like this one!  The image and sentiment are by Unity Stamp Co.  It's an Itty Bitty Stamp called, appropriately, "Chick in the Rain". I colored it with Copic markers. I used a Spellbinders label die in 2 different sizes.  The umbrella is a die by Memory Box. The ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  
I hope you join us at Sunday Sketch and Stamp.  With 200 choices, you should find plenty of sketches that appeal!
Did you know there are prizes to be won? The prizes for the hop have been provided by:

 I Design for


as well as some mystery prizes!!!!

You've got to be in it to win it!! There are 3 prizes hidden along the way which could be won by anyone who leaves a comment - but no one knows where the prizes are, so you must make sure you visit and comment on everyone's blog. Then there are another 3 prizes for everyone who joins in with the 'Any past sketch challenge'. So - if you join in with the hop and the challenge, you could win more than one prize!!
Now, I'm sending you on to the talented Kathleen's blog.  Have fun hopping!
