Souffle Pen Set Winner Announced

Before I announce the winner I would like to thank Sakura for sponsoring this awesome prize. I really am a huge fan of these wonderful pens and use them on almost all of my cards and layouts. On Sakura's website you can order products, find a store in your area that stocks Sakura products, have your LSS order products if they don't already carry the range or be inspired by gorgeous works like that of Artist Sharon Silver. Please visit this great sponsor HERE - you won't be disappointed :) Thanks so much to everyone that participated in my Sketch Challenge to win a set of Souffle pens from Sakura. The cards are all very beautiful and creative. It was really exciting for me to check my blog and be surprised to find yet another gorgeous card - your work provides me with the inspiration to create too. Here is a list of everyone that entered and a link to their blogs, so that you can see, not only their cards for this sketch but also their amazing work:
Allison, Annie, Becky, Christy, Danielle, Deanne, Em, Giovanna, Heather, Ingrid, Jen, Krista, Lisa, Mamaluke, Michelle, Pam, Pearl, Qween Davia, Rebecca, Rima, Sharon, Stef, Steven, Sue, Teriberi, TerrieBx, and Tommieannie
A special thanks also goes out to my good friend, Lisa, who helped me select a winner for this challenge.
An honorable mention goes out to the youngest participant, Steven, who at 8 years old made two darling cards. Steven please have your mom send me your address so I can send you something special in the mail
(Steven's Mom contacted me and told me about his participation. Although Steven's card was not actually considered part of this competition, his mother and I have communicated. I offered to send them art products from me personally as a token of appreciation from me, for his efforts.)
The Winner of the Sakura Souffle Pen set goes to: Mamaluke Congratulations. We loved the colors, dimensions and details on your card. Please email me your address so I can get your prize off to you as soon as possible :)
Please stop by next week, on June 1st, for our big announcement. It is going to be super fun and exciting that I can promise you...

Thank you Kazan! He is screaming of joy next to me... by the way he woke me up at 7AM to see the challenge winner... He is going to write below and use his letter writing skills learned at school. :)

Here is a little note from him:

Dear Kazan,

I had a great time doing your sketch. It was easy and fun, because my mom let me use all her stuff.
