Tuesday Tips - 2 Sketches 4 You

True art is characterized by an irresistible urge in the creative artist. -Albert Einstein

Hello-- here is your tips for where to go to find some great inspiration this week. If you need to make a quick card, visit 2 sketches for you.  They provide a real easy (but great) sketch design for you to follow to make a card in minutes. My neighbors came home from the hospital with a new baby girl (I'm guessing from the pink balloons on the mailbox:) on Easter Sunday. What a blessing to bring a baby home on such a day-- one I'm sure they'll never forget (who am I kidding, after having a baby you don't really even know what day it is:). Anyway... I made this card for them tonight while I watched the late night news using Kazan's sketch.

If you are looking for a start on a scrapbook page, I found a site that offers a free sketch every week, 52 sketches 52 weeks. Check it out, this week's sketch is one I'm surely going to attempt (notice I don't 100% commit:) to check off my list.


Products: patterned paper (My Mind's Eye/Penny Lane), flower (Prima), rhinestone (Kaiser Scrapbooks), ink (Cat's Eye), stamps (Anna Griffin), glitter (Stickles), ribbon (scrap).
