Kazan's Sketch 25 & DT Farewell

Who would have imagined that 3 months would fly by so quickly but that has been the case here, especially for us working with such a fabulous team. The 2S4Y Spring Design Team has delivered the most gorgeous cards week after week. Their enthusiasm and amazing talent has been on display for the past 3 months for your inspirational pleasure and we are really going to miss them. Please join us as we bid farewell to your 2009 Spring Design Team.


Berdien has been one of the loyal 2 Sketches 4 You players from our inception in June 2008. Her amazing talent and cards are instantly recognizable through her signature style. We love her quiet enthusiasm and her ability to make the products shine! We will miss you Berdien but look forward to continuing this journey with you as you become a 2S4Y Alumni. Groete & Liefs!


Dawne has a very impressive resume yet she is one of the most humble & kindest people we have met. Her quiet yet impressive nature shines through in her work and we love it! Another very loyal follower of 2S4Y, Dawne is no stranger to challenges and fabulous cards. We know we will see a lot more of her work out in cyber-land and on magazine pages. For now we are happy she is part of our 2S4Y family and look forward to having her part of this group for many more sketches to come! Hugs to you always!


Ewonne has a dynamic personality that matches her gorgeous work. Always funny and ready for a challenge. We loved working with her and could not wait to see what 'Ewonne' touch she would add to a product each week. Her work is undeniably stunning and it has been a pleasure having her on our team. We will miss you Ewonne but look forward to seeing 'Ewonne Favorites' for weeks & weeks to come. Hugs to you our friend!


When we first laid eyes on Julies work we were smitten. She is such a talented cardmaker with such a range in creativity that we were instantly blessed to have her on our team. We will always consider Julie a friend and someone that will be part of 2S4Y forever. Always a kind word, always enthusiastic no matter what the demand ;) Julie you are the best! We will remain loyal followers of your work here and on the printed pages. Hugs to you from us!


Lulu (Laura) has virtually shot to fame, it seems overnight! We were drawn to her amazing talent and the most beautiful cards imaginable! Seems we were not alone because suddenly everyone seemed to recognise Lulu too - from 2 Peas to magazines galore. We are thrilled to have you on our team, to be part of your success and to get to know the very cute & funny cardmaker behind all that talent! We loved having you on our team and we look forward to seeing a lot more of your work here & everywhere for years to come. Hugs to you from all of us!

Bonus Sketch & Card

This week the bonus sketch and card is brought to you by the very talented Savitri. Those of you who are fortunate enough to know Savitri know that she is an amazing ball of energy and passion which she brings to her cards and photography. She is very talented and super witty & funny too. You can see more of Savitri's fabulous work on her blog: Scrappin and Stampin with Savitri. We look forward to continue to see your work here and of course catch glimpses of your fun life on facebook. Hugs to you from all of us!
