A sad day for Sketch Saturday :(

It is with great sadness that I now tell you all that Mariska has decided to leave our design team :(
This was not an easy decision for Mariska to make, she has thought about this very much over the last few weeks, but finally decided to leave the design team because of other commitments, as well as looking after her lovely children.
Mariska, as you all know, makes the most stunningly beautiful cards, but has had little spare time to enjoy her passion for crafting lately, especially to a weekly challenge blog like ours.

Mariska will be greatly missed as part of our little family, she will always be a dear friend to each of us on the DT, and will, of course, keep in touch with us, and even take part in our challenges when she has the time to.

Mariska... a HUGE THANK YOU for your inspiration, kindness, support, wonderful creations and most of all your friendship, Sketch Saturday most definately is a success because of your contribution and lovely work.

We all wish you the very best,

((( love & hugs ))) "The girls"

EDIT FROM MARISKA:

Thank you so much for your sweet comments and of course my buddies for their sweet words!! I've had so much fun both working with the incredible girls on the team as in the contact with so many wonderful participants. But I'm not going to miss you all since we are all going to stay in touch anyway :). Not dropping of the face of the earth, just taking it a bit down on the crafting.

Girlies on the team, I wish you all the best, I'm going to enjoy looking at your gorgeous creations each week as I always have. And you know you are the best right and I don't only mean in crafting!

And to the participants.. I'm one of you now :). Thank you all for your lovely comments each week, it has been a lovely time for a large part thanks to you!!!!

Take care!!

  6. I hope I can do this.
    I like the sketch a lot, but tweaked it a bit to make a masculine card (left off flowers, for one). Thanks for all the lovely samples to admire.
