Welcome To Our New Sketch Blog

We are so excited to introduce our brand new sketch blog to you all. 2 Sketches 4 You is the result of two friends, Kazan and Laura, wanting to combine their creative talents to bring to you a weekly sketch blog. A blog filled with fun, challenges, prizes, sketches and gorgeous cards.

Each Monday one of the sketch artists will post a sketch and give you the opportunity to link your card to that sketch. The Card of the week will be announced on the following Sunday and a link to all the artists cards for that week will also be provided.

The 2 Sketches Team is also excited to announce that within the first week of July they will be looking for a Design Team. Now is your chance to shine. Give us an opportunity to get to know you, drop on in and say hello, link us to your blog and post your cards...You just may be a future 2 Sketches 4 You Designer.

This week we would love you to make a card or two and post it either under Kazan or Laura's sketch. At the end of the week we will highlight the Card of the Week. Next week the challenges for prizes begin.

Have Fun - we can' wait to see your gorgeous work!

Kazan & Laura

Ok, so I'm a little late, but for good reason.... Anyway, I did a card for each sketch. The first card I really liked but I think I got too tired when I made my second card so I'm not super happy with it. Anyway, take a look at www.desiree-at-play.blogspot.com.
Thank you for two fabulous sketches!!!
