2sketches4you

Yet another fab sketch this week over at 2sketches4you this time by the lovely Laura.
I do apologise for the bad lighting & shadows but it's 10.45pm here so I'm having to work by light & they never do look their best this way.
I had to slightly turn the sketch a little here so that my mini book is the part that sticks out when open...
I chose the wording "Made Just For You" as I send most of my challenge cards out to the troops in Iraq & Afghanistan so I thought this would be a really nice sentiment for someone to receive from a member of the armed services.

These guys and gals out there are doing a truly amazing job, be it what they believe in or not, they are following the orders that they signed up to take and for that I take my hat off to them...
Well I hope you like my card & I hope it makes someone happy somewhere when they receive it.
If you've not already joined in the fun this week created by Laura then hurry up & pop over now...
In the meantime, until tomorrow at least, happy crafting to one & all.

Great card and love the idea of hiding the sentiment. Would be great on a child's card too. Maybe hide some money or a gift card...
