It’s Goodbye

Missing You
Sometimes good things must come to an end. It’s sad but life is about having the courage to decide when to stop and move on to something new.

After two years 2Sketches4You is closing. Laura and Kazan have invited all past design team to participate in this last post and this is my take based on Kazan’s sketch.

I know I have participated in their challenge in ages but 2S4Y will always be my favorite card sketch challenge. Their sketches are always fun, Laura + Kazan were awesome to work with and best of all, I’ve met some great craft friends while playing along. I also think that 2S4Y was my first big DT gig (I don’t keep up with this stuff but I am almost certain) and I remember being super happy when I received the acceptance email.

I will miss seeing their sketches and cards created using those sketches but I know that whatever Laura and Kazan do next will be fabulous. They’re two very talented ladies, not just in crafting!!

My card is very simple. I pretty much stuck to the sketch, even the butterfly. For this card I used two stamp sets, one is one of my favorite from WPlus9, Woodgrain Silhouette Addition and Guiding Light Sentiment. For the colors I chose Dawn’s Color Cue for this week: Aqua, pink and white. I skipped the neutral color.

Missing You

I’ll give you another view from a different angle.

Missing You

On the ribbon… Laura is probably my favorite ribbon bow maker. She makes the best looking bows I think. One day I asked her what her trick is and she said to pull very hard. Laura, if you’re get to reading this part… I pulled and pulled, oh, watch your video too, and still, I don’t get no Laura style bow!

Missing You

Ok, that’s it. Will miss them guys!! Have a great Martin Luther King day!!

    It’s so, so sad! 2 Sketches 4 You has, always, been my favorite sketch challenge, too! Your card is beautiful, though! How can you go wrong with this soft palette, that super sketch, and those fabby, stamp sets?! Way to do it up right!

    Sweet and simple card. I’m going to miss 2S4Y a lot :-( I have tried to take part in many of their sketches and I always waited for Monday evening (Indian time) when their sketches would be put up! Too bad nothing lasts forever! :-(

    Oh, my gracious! I came to look at your Waltzingmouse card and scrolled down to look at your beautiful layouts and adorable young ladies and realized that this card must’ve stuck with me. I’ve been playing with those same stamps all week, even for this same challenge. Probably should say thank you! So, thank you so much!
