My last Monday as a 2S4Y DT member :( Waaaahhhhh!!!!!

Good Morning Everyone!

Its with a heavy heart that I write this post - today is the end of my 6 months with the 2 Sketches for You Design Team :( waaaaaah!!! I can't believe how fast my time on the DT has flown. A huge thank you to Laura and Kazan for all that they do to create such a wonderful community over at 2 Sketches 4 You - they truly are such sweet inspirations! To have been a part of the DT and to have worked with such wonderful team mates as been such an honor and a wonderful experience - I am truly honored to have been part of this amazing team and still can't wait for every Monday to see what the DT has created and what wonderful sketches Laura and Kazan will come up with!

Today, Laura has a wonderful sketch for us to play along with (Laura's Sketch #45) and this week's sponsor is Sakura of America. I wanted to make something special for this week's card sketch since it is my last one - so I thought I would make a thank you card - for Laura and Kazan and for all of you! I am truly so grateful to be part of this cardmaking community in blogland and just wanted to say a big thank you for all of you who read this blog or leave comments - thank you so much for all of your support, encouragement and sweet wishes!!!

For this week's sketch, I rotated the sketch and did a horizontal card with the sentiment: I'm so grateful"

Card Ingredients:
Paper: Prism paper and BG Lime Rickey
Stamps: Up, up and Away and Thankful Hearts from Verve
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and Lady Bug red
Accessories: dimensionals, Sakura clear, white glaze and metallic pens, copics, dimensional pearls, corner rounder, spellbinders and kaiser bling.

I used the uber cute stamp set: Up, Up and Away and the wonderful stamp set Thankful Hearts from Verve. I love all the different sentiments - but this one that says "I'm so grateful" really was the perfect one to describe how I am feeling.

A HUGE heart hug to my dearest 2 Sketches 4 You Design Team members and dearest Kazan and Laura for everything - you guys have no idea how much fun and joy I have had being on the DT and creating cards with your amazing sketches!! I truly adore you both and can't wait to ALL hang out together!!!!

Hop on over to 2 Sketches 4 You and check out all the wonderful creations by the DT with this week's awesome sketch!

Big hugs to all - I am so grateful for all of you!!
Much love,
Sankari :)
