Yes, monday again.

And monday means a new sketch from 2sketches4you. This weeks sketch is made by Laura.



I didn't want to make just a card, but wanted to make something different. I decided to use a transparent and made a card for my good "old" friend Ciska, who is celebrating her 50th. birthday on september 5th. Used KI memories papers and crocheted around, which is one of my favorite techniques at the moment.
I didn't excactly copy the sketch, but hé that's allowed. So feel free to give a sketch your own turn.





And now a little funny story.
Last week when I'd just finished Ciska's card, the backdoor opened and she came in. She was about to leave for her vacation in Greece and came to bring something for my upcoming birthday. She wanted to give that to one of my daughters. Than suddenly I realised her birthdaycard was standing just beside her and with a little panic I told her she had to close her eyes, right now.
Of course she didn't understand why and when I told her there was something in the room she wasn't supposed to see, she closed her eyes and I could hide the card. LOL. Besides, I used this weeks sketch for her card and no one was allowed to see it. So Ciska, when you read my blog, forget about the card and let it be a surprise on your birthday!
