Card of the Week & Fab 5!

Happy Birthday
to our very talented
*Kathy Martin*

ay Spring
has officially arrived and for the most part we have seen a few signs of it's beauty in the form of warmer days, budding flowers and longer daylight hours. Some of us have also experienced some Spring Snow storms which, luckily for us, have been fairly mild but still a reminder to not pack away those winter woolies quite yet!

This week the gallery was filled to the brim with Spring inspiration, so even though here in Colorado it is a Winter Wonderland outside all we need to do is to peek into the 2S4Y gallery to find all the beauty and freshness of Springs inspiration.

Thank you so much to Starving Artistamps for their fantastic sponsorship and for the awesome discount which is still available to 2 Sketches 4 You readers until midnight tonight!

The winner of 2 sets of Starving Artistamps goes to:

Card of the Week

I love clever cards and this one of Dora's is certainly all that and more. Not only is her stamp & coloring work ultra delicious looking but then she added the element of rain! Here is the clever part -the rain is in front of the card while the image is on the inside - which makes for a stunning illusion. Thank you so much for sharing this fun technique with us Dora. For more Dora fabulousness visit her blog at

Life with a Twist

Dora please email me your details so that I can get your prize off to you.

Fab 5!

Tomorrow Laura returns with an amazing sketch and you are not going to believe how gorgeous the DT cards are - seriously they ROCKED the sponsor! I get to play too so see you on the Gallery
