Ingrid said...

Dear Kazan and Laura, thank you SO MUCH for your lovely words. *blush* It's been such a great pleasure and amazing experience to be on this DT. Your sketches are THE BEST, and you both are so wonderful, kind, inspirational and talented. I regret to say goodbye to the team, but fortunately I don't have to miss 2S4Y as I will keep participating in the weekly sketch challenges like I used to before I got on the team. Thank you very much for this opportunity. I had a blast on this amazing and talented DT. And of course a big thank you to the other DT girls.


Lisette Gibbons said...

Well, it's definitely been a whirlwind three months for me. I'm grateful and want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to be part of 2S4Y. I'd never made a card along a sketch before your blog launched and since then I've learned so much. Kazan and Laura, the pair of you are amazing at what you do and hopefully 2S4Y will continue with a new fantastic design team. xox P.S. Thanks for your sweet words.

Petra said...

I love al the cards that have been made for this week! Thanx to the DT members for all their inspiration!!! I'm curios to find out who is in the new team....
You can find my card here:
Hugs Petra

Leontine said...

We will miss all of you aswell!! The sketch again is great....hopefully I have some time left tonight. Hugs, Leontine

Made by Mandy said...

I would just like to say that I am truly amazed each week by all the DT's cards and it will be sad to see you go. I hope we will see you posting your gorgeous designs anyway. You are all so talented and that is something to aspire to.

Also, Laura & Kazan, I think it is wonderful that you have individually acknowledged each departing DT member, the camaraderie and family feeling you give to this blog is why it is so popular and people come back for more.

Åshild said...

Thank you, Kazan & Laura - it's been amazing to be a part of your DT! I love the way you host this blog and the way you inspire all of us with nice words and beautiful creations! I'm so H*A*P*P*Y that our roads crossed like this :) A HUGE hug to you both!

And to my super talented DT fellows: You're great! You inspire me big time every week and I've learned so much from you. Thanks to each of you *hug*

I'm just SO curious about the coming Winter Team... :) Can't wait to see who you are and what you'll create for 2S4Y the next months.

I have just one more thing to say:

2S4Y totally rocks!

Hugs & love,

Christine said...

Kazan and Laura,

Thank you so much for your sweet words...the admiration I have for you two is mutual! ;-D It has been such a fabulous experience being a part of your Fall DT! I am so very grateful to the both of you for giving me the privilege to be a part of it, and I will never forget the pleasure I've had working with the both of you and your terrific sketches each week!

I hope and pray that the success you've experienced with this vision for inspiring other cardmakers around the world continues! Your weekly sketches are always so awesome, and it's obvious that so many people enjoy them just by seeing the list of participants each week! :-D

I look forward with anticipation at seeing who will be chosen to be on the new team. I can't wait to see their work, and be inspired each week by them! That means that I intend to still be around and taking part each week as can't get rid of me that easily! {wink}

Hugs and blessings,

~dawne said... sweet is all of this!! I'm definitely going to miss this group of ladies, but I stalk their blogs, so I know I'll continue to see their work. Thank you ladies for all the inspiration you gave!!

Dear Laura and Kazan, this has been an amazing 3 month! I liked every single minute of it and I want to say thank you for giving me the opportunity to join this amazing DT.

Be sure I keep visiting your awesome blog and that I will participate as much as I can.
And I want to say thank you to my fellow DT girls. We've had a great time together. I love your work and I will follow you too!

Love from Joke.

It's such a pity that we have to say goodbye to this talented team but I'm sure they are not going to leave. I'll follow them anyhow. And I'm very anxious for the new team to come. The cards are again amazing as the bonussketc. Sadly I'm caught with the flue so I'm not sure if I'll be able to play along but I'll give it a try.
