My new 2sketches4you card and World Card Making day 2008!

Finally I'm feeling better. The last two weeks weren't my best, but here I am again, the happy me! Let me start to say thank you for all your very nice comments on my "Officially Friends" post. I really loved reading them and you bet I'll cherish this new friendship.

And as you all know monday is 2sketches4you day. Time for a fantastic new sketch, made by Laura. This sketch was so easy to work with and I really enjoyed it.
I'm going to use this card as a birthdaycard and stupid me forgot to "change the age". And because I'm sure the "birthdaygirl" reads my blog, I just gave away a surprice. Oops.

This is Laura's sketch 10.

And here's my take on the sketch.

Last saturday, we celebrated "World Card Making Day". The whole 2s4y team made an extra card to celebrate that event. Both Laura and Kazan made a sketch and I played with Laura's sketch. I've used a piece of Hambly transparent, crocheted around it and used some KI lace and papers. You can see a lot of lovely cards on the 2s4y blog, so please take a look.

I hardly celebrated WCMD because I wasn't at home all day. I went shopping in Utrecht with my friend Anne and on our way home we bought some Indonesian food. We cooked some rice at home and had a lovely dinner.
After dinner, Anne wanted to scrap a card, her first one! We choose a not so complicated one and had a lot of fun, at least I had.
Of course I helped her a little bit, but she cut out all the flowers, choose the papers, used the Crop-a-Dile and placed the letterstickers. I'm sure the receiver will be highly surprised with this beautiful result.
Here's a photo of the result. Look how blissful Anne, the blonde one, looks.

I'm proud of you girl! Your first card made on WCMD.

What a gorgeous card, Joke! I kept "ooh"-ing and "wow"-ing over it when I saw it over at 2S4Y! LOL!

I love the colors, and the pearl stick pins are perfect! The person who receives this is going to be truly blessed! Beautiful work!

How fun to have been able to help Anne create her first card! It sounds like you had lots of fun together that day!

Thanks so much for sharing!
