2 Sketches 4 You: Keep Calm and Carry On



Happy Monday! Although I'm afraid it's really not happy because this will be the final week for the 2 Sketches 4 You blog. Can you hear me boo-hooing?! After two wonderful years, the uber-talented Laura and Kazan are exploring other options, which I totally understand and wish them all the best. I cry for myself and my own selfish reasons! ha! ha!



I hope you'll play along with the week's final sketches! Laura and Kazan both posted a sketch and all of the design team members, past AND present, have made cards to share with you. You'll definitely want to check it out! This week's theme is appropriately: goodbye, farewell, good luck, etc. When I heard the news, I knew immediately which stamp I would use: Keep Calm and Carry On!



Since I'm on holiday today, hopefully I'll get a chance to make a second card using Kazan's sketch and share it too. I look forward to checking out your creations with this week's sketches! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!



Edited to add: I bought that fun stamp at Archiver's in Missouri over Christmas break, but if you google that sentiment with rubber stamp, you'll find some sites that have it! :)

LOVE this sentiment...so very British! I am SO sad about 2S4Y! It was the first challenge blog I ever participated in, & it's always been my fave! I'll be boohooing right along with you!

Love this card! Awesome sentiment and ruffles. I recently saw "Keep Calm and Craft On" and loved it. I've enjoyed your 2S4Ys. Sad to hear they're ending.

So sad about 2S4Y. I turned to them for inspiration all the time. But everything must change.
This card is so fun! A nice mix of color and pattern.

Such a cute card! And what a perfect sentiment for the final 2S4Y challenge! I'm really going to miss 2S4Y!! You did a fantastic job on their DT, Angie! Thanks for all of the inspiration!
