School Days are almost here!


Good Morning Everyone,

Can I just tell you something so awesome I have been giggling in excitement to myself !!?!!! I am excited to join 2 Sketches 4 You as their newest Design Team member!!! Here's how I feel inside:  :)

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so honored and grateful to join this team. I have always loved Laura and Kazan's  sketches and I had so much fun participating in the first annual Ultimate Card Showdown that they hosted in celebration of the first birthday of their sketch blog! I love that there is so much room for interpretation of the sketch and how sweet Laura and Kazan are with all of the people who play along! It always feels like a little world family to come and visit their blog every monday morning!!! And more than anything, I am so excited to be able to work with these two fabulous artists and the fantastic Design Team!!! 

This week, Laura has an awesome sketch to play with and the sponser this week is The Cutting Cafe which has an awesome selection of cutting files and templates that you can download and print out or cut out! I used the pencils and sentiment from the School Days printable stamp set and printed out a few of the pencils on different color cardstock and popped out one pencil and glitterized it :) 
Card Details:
Paper: the pencils are printed on colored cardstock from stash, the background paper is from My Mind's Eye (Dotty Dude)
Stamps: Cutting Cafe's School Days Printable stamp set
Ink: printer and Martha gray
Accessories: Ribbon from Martha, Spellbinders, Circle cutters from CM, Bazzil Embroidery thread, K&CO bling, glitter from Martha (Crystal Coarse), Stickles (Cotton Candy, Frosted Lace, Crystal, Orange Peel, button from stash, liquid glaze and dimensionals.

I really enjoyed working with this stamp set - it is totally perfect timing as both the kids are starting school this year and they both have teachers who are new to the school and who both are my friends - so I wanted to make a something for them and can't wait to make another one of these cards so I can have two for the both of them :)

Check out the amazing creations from the fantabulous DT and play along! Can't wait to see your wonderful creations with Laura's sketch!!!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog!
Wishing you a wonderful Monday and a great start to your week!!!

Big Hugs and sunny smiles!!
Sankari :)
