*2 Sketches 4 You is Two*
It is hard to believe that we are already celebrating our two year anniversary. It seems like only yesterday that Laura and I hatched this idea over a cup of coffee on a warm sunny day here in Colorado. We talked, planned and finalized our little baby and nervously pressed the 'Publish Post' button which was soon to become a fun gathering place for the most amazing talent on the web. We have loved bringing you every single sketch over the past two years and we have enjoyed working with some of the best product available to crafters. We hope that through our talented Design teams we have not only inspired you to create but also that we have opened the doors for you to experiment with your cards and to try new products. Thank you for your continued support in making this one of the best challenge sites to ever be a part of :)
This week we have something extra special planned as part of our two week celebration: Our Design team worked with the beautiful stamps from Wplus9 who is our sponsor this week.
But wait there is more..
The fabulous people over at Scor-it, together with Cathie Allen, have come up with a fab new tool called Position-it. Each of our Designers has created a fun tutorial demonstrating how to use this 'non-slip' positioner with their Wplus9 stamps. Links to these tutorials have been provided under each designers card.
Without further delay here is the 2 Sketches 4 You Design Team's cards for this week using Wplus9 stamps and the Position-it:
