2 Sketches 4 You Farewell

**This is my second post for today!  Scroll down to see the new DeNami Sketch Challenge! **

Yep that's right! Today we are saying goodbye to one of my favorite sketch sites, 2 Sketches 4 You! Laura and Kazan have decided to say goodbye today as they have some new and exciting things coming their way! I am so sad to have to say goodbye but so happy for them! I feel so lucky to have been invited to join the Design Team and had a blast while I was there!

Here is our final sketch...


And here is my take on the sketch...

I usually like to make my own spin on it, but today I stayed true to the sketch! All the way down to the heart! (With the little stiches that were inspired by this card! Scroll down in the post to see it!)  And I love that May Arts ribbon! It works so well for a fun embellishment!

So thank you for joining us today! And thank you to Laura and Kazan for this amazing and fun opportunity to join your team for awhile! I had alot of fun and Good Luck to you both!

Have a great day!
