Kazan's Sketch 46



Kazan worked with the Birdhouse Digital image from InStyle Stamps

As we head into the second half of February we say goodbye to Valentines Day and welcome the arrival of new Cardmaking opportunities: St. Patrick's Day, Easter and Spring, among others, are great reasons to create handmade cards as well as any occasion in between. This week my card celebrates a new home or house remodel :) using the darling little Birdhouse from InStyle Stamps.

Speaking of remodeling; We here in 2S4Y land have done some remodeling of our own. Today we welcome three new Designers to our design team. Laura and I decided to do things a little differently and not have a DT call as we have in the past - between Christmas, New Year and CHA we thought it might just be a little too crazy! So we went back to the entries we received for the last call and we looked at our Card of the Week winners and found three fabulous designers to join the ranks of our exciting talented team. Will you please join Laura, Kathy, Sarah, Shanna and me in welcoming the following talented designers to 2 Sketches 4 You:




All of our Designers added their own personal style to InStyle Stamps and this weeks sketch with these gorgeous cards:
