Final 2 Sketches 4 You DT Card

It is the first time in months that the title of the Boomtown Rats song I don't like Mondays comes to my mind on Monday. Today I reveal my last card for the 2 Sketches 4 You Design Team. :-( Our 3-month DT term has come to an end. Yeah.....time flies when you're having fun..... ;-) I had such a fabulous time being on this amazing team. I would like to thank Kazan and Laura for this great opportunity. It has been such a wonderful experience. Kazan and Laura are great and inspirational sketch designers - I just love all their sketches - and they are so committed to their sketch blog. Their talent and commitment, and the fact that they always take time to leave everyone a comment is the key to their huge success. And....they both are so kind and sweet. I really cherish our friendship. Kazan and Laura, thanks for having me on your team. You are THE BEST!! I am gonna miss you, but of course I'll keep playing along each week.

Of course I would also like to thank Ashild, Carla, Christine, Joke and Lisette. These girls are so amazingly talented. I always get inspired by their gorgeous cards and projects. Thanks, girls!!

Well....over to this week's sketch by Kazan. We were challenged to create a Halloween card or - if you don't celebrate Halloween - a Fall themed/colored card. We don't have Halloween over here, but I enjoy using Halloween papers/colors and did create a Halloween card. Here's Kazan's sketch.....



Here is my take on Kazan's sketch.....



Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper Patterned paper: Scenic Route Salem Letters: American Crafts Chipboard Thickers Tools: Martha Stewart ZigZag punch, sewing machine Ink: VersaColor Pinecone #171 Other: organza ribbon

To see Kazan's gorgeous card and the cards by the DT go over to 2 Sketches 4 You. You should really give this week's sketch a try, because there is a great prize by Lil'Scrappers to win and....Kazan and Laura are both giving away a BOO-tiful RAK.

Next Monday the new 2S4Y Winter Design Team will be announced and I hardly can wait to find out who made it to the team.

Did I say we don't have Halloween in the Netherlands? Well....I do have a Halloween party on Friday October 31st. It is Fright Night at Dolls & Decorations. A Halloween Crop from 19.00 - 0.00 hrs. Entrance is free, but ONLY if you come dressed up! So....get your spooky costume, send an e-mail to Dolls & Decorations to register, come to Almere on Friday and let's have fun!!



O...and an update on the weight loss. I lost 0.7kg last week. Not that much in weight, but again my fat percentage decreased with almost 2% and I lost 9cm in the past 2 weeks. I am half way my goal now. It is not always easy, but the good result really motivates me. Besides, it is great when people compliment me on my weight loss.

Thanks for sweet comments on my digital layout!

Anja (scrappie) said...

Een prachtig kaartje weer Ingrid en jammer dat het er nu opzit maar je blijft natuurlijk wel kaartjes maken toch? En way to go girl met je lijnen je gaat als een speer.

Monique said...

Wat een prachtige kaartjes heb je gemaakt. En idd heel erg jammer dat het DT termijn erop zit, maar ik denk dat we toch wekelijks van je creaties kunnen genieten. Je was een grote inspiratiebron voor vele en zeker ook voor mij.
Ik heb dan wel niet iedere week meegedaan, maar je werk zeker elke week bewonderd. veel succes met alles wat je nog gaat ondernemen. Er komen vast en zeker weer andere leuke dingen op je pad, want iemand die zulke mooie kaarten maakt blijft niet lang onopgemerkt.
