Kazan's Sketch 14

American Thanksgiving is such an amazing Holiday which I am proud to have celebrated for the past 10 years. It is a day dedicated to giving thanks for all your blessings. I wanted to share my list of 5 things I am thankful for and encourage you all to do the same. As you post your card this week let us know about your Thankful List - we would love to hear about the 5 things in your life that make it good.

5 things that make my life good:
1. Family
My Husband and my girls, my Mom & Dad and my Sister & Brother are at the top of this list and will always be.
2. Friends
That special group of people that I am proud to call my Friends
3. This Country
It is beautiful, it is great and it is my home
4. Health
I am thankful for my good health and thankful for the reminders at how precious this life we have is.
5. Creativity
It is me and I can express who I am by being creative. I am truly thankful for this gift and what it has brought to me

Our Design Team worked their own Creative magic to bring you these gorgeous takes on this week sketch:







Bonus Sketch & Card
Hanneke van Dalen

She may be the youngest on our team (only by a year or two *wink*) but her work packs in years of creativity. We love the energy and fun she brings to the team and to her designs and we love that sweet Dutch accent too :). You are amazing and we are so glad to have you on our team. You can see more of Hanneke's work right here: Scraps 'n Stuff

*Remember we would love to see your take on Hanneke's sketch however you are only required to make a card based off of Kazan's Sketch 14 to be eligible for this weeks prize.

In a Pinch Designs

Sheri and Judy would like to introduce you to In A Pinch Designs. They both wanted to start a kit company but one with a twist. All of their kits are PRE-CUT and the design is taken care of. All you need to do is follow the careful directions and you will have a page completed In A Pinch! We have all been there; a crop to go to and no time to prepare; lost your creative juices or just want to get a page done quickly. Well, they have the solution for you.
Both Sheri and Judy are thrilled to bring you In A Pinch Designs with the hope to provide inspiration through design, technique and color.

One lucky card maker can win two of In A Pinch Design Kits. I think this is such a fabulous time saving idea - this gets the scrapbook pages taken care of which leaves more time to make cards or you could even use these cute cut-outs to make a unique card! Here is what you need to do to enter:

How to Enter:

• Please provide a link to your card by posting it on this thread
• Deadline for all entries: Saturday November 29th at Midnight (US Mountain time)
• Your card should be based off the sketch provided and can be of any theme
• The winning card will be announced as the Card of the Week on Sunday, November 30th here at 2 Sketches 4 You.
• International Cardmakers are welcome to enter

Have a wonderful week and an even greater Thanksgiving
Hugs Kazan & your Rocking Design Team
