Good Luck to 2S4Y Founders 42

Mona Pendleton | Monday, January 17, 2011 @ 8:00 AM | , , , ,

***I have two posts today - so if you are looking for my Friends of Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Waltz post please click HERE*** I apologize for the inconvenience.

I am SURE many of you have either played along, guest designed or have seen the awesome sketches brought to us from Kazan and Laura, Founders/Owners of the 2Sketches4You Sketch Challenge blog. Well their creative journey has taken them in a new direction and this week's sketches will be the final sketches brought to us by the two of them. Along with the sketches, there is a theme being observed that being: "farewell", "good luck" or "miss you". Please visit the 2S4Y site for COMPLETE details and a WHOLE lot of inspiration!
 Although I am very sad that Kazan and Laura are "shutting down" 2S4Y but I am VERY happy for both of them and can't wait to see where their papercrafting journey will take them next! I made this Good Luck card referring to Kazan's sketch for inspiration. The sweet little rose is a gift I received from my sweet friend Suzanne and the pretty Buttercup seam binding is courtesy of Kimberly at My Craft Spot where you will find MANY beautiful colors for sale.
I inked up the GOOD Luck sentiment from Waltzingmouse Fancy Phrases and used a  to cut/emboss the image which is all showcased on gorgeous DP from the Pink Paislee Sweetness Collection.
That's all for today! Thanks for looking - Be Sweet! Please be sure to visit the 2S4Y site and leave some love :)
