2S4Y :: Rejoice



Happy Monday, Bleeps! It's hard to return to work after a four-day weekend, but also a bit easier than a typical weekend. So, I'm grateful for those additional two days off! Today, I'm sharing with you a card I made for this week's 2 Sketches 4 You layout. This week's sketch is sponsored by Starving Artistamps. These stamps are perfect for your holiday cards and to truly celebrate the reason for the season. So, join the 2S4Y DT this week and make a fun card using this week's sketch! Here's a peek at the sketch:
