Kazan's Sketch 13



Thank you so much for the fantastic birthday wishes that I received from everyone. Not only was my b/day amazing but the whole week was filled with surprises and well wishes, many from friends right here at 2s4u - it was great!

Speaking of birthdays: Ingrid Danvers, a former Fall Design Team Member, celebrates her birthday this week too. Happy Birthday from all of us Ingrid - we hope it is a good one :) Right here in the U.S. we celebrate Veterans Day this week. I hope to thank a few of our brave men and woman as I run my daily errands this week.

This week our brand new Design Team shows off their fabulous work for the first time. I am so in love with all of their work and I know, judging from this week's cards, that the next 3 months are going to be a feast for everyone's eyes. And if you, like me, can't wait until next week to see more of the DT's work, be sure to pop into their blogs (they are linked in the sidebar) for some serious eye-candy!

We continue this week with Sakura of America sponsoring our Card of the Week. I personally am in love with Sakura Souffle and Glaze pens. Sakura Pens write effortlessly on all types of surfaces with amazing professional results. These gorgeous pens come in all sorts of colors and once you write with a Sakura of America Product it can become addictive - trust me I know :) Superior quality for our superior cards.
You can learn more about Sakura products on the Sakura of America Website where one of the most useful features I have found is their Store Locator button:

www.sakuraofamerica.com


and here is the prize that one lucky Card Maker can win this week, sponsored by Sakura of America


How to Enter:
• Please provide a link to your card by posting it on this thread
• Deadline for all entries: Saturday November 15th at Midnight (US Mountain time)
• Your card should be based off the sketch provided and can be of any theme
