Huge Success

Wow!  is the response we received from around the world after the first week of the 1st Annual 2 Sketches 4 You Ultimate Card Showdown.  We admired and were inspired by over 400 cards - each so creative and beautiful that it was almost impossible to choose 30 Finalists.   Luckily we had the 2S4Y Design Team (past and present) to help us select 30 very talented ladies who are now making cards hoping to be selected as the Top 20.  It is very exciting and so much fun.

This is the card I created for this weeks sketch.  I am so in love with vintage at the moment and take any opportunity when I am out and about to find something old and gorgeous to put on my cards.  This image came from a vintage card that I picked up in an Antique shop in Buena Vista, Colorado.

I hope to see you on 2 Sketches 4 You because there is another fab giveaway from a cool sponsor.  We are getting ready to head to the airport - My Dad arrives from South Africa today...whooohoooo!

Thanks for stopping by - have a great Monday!
