This beautiful sketch that Christine created at 2sketches 4U here was really a pleasure to work with, as it is quite original, and not so common. Actually I opted to turn it 90 degrees to the right. This is the actual sketch she designed
Anyway this is what I came with, a Grateful defined card, showing apprecition to someone who has been kind. I loved this colour combo right from the start, and with some bits and pieces it was completed. I had nobody in mind while I was doing it, but I want to dedicate it to all who are a support to me personally, to my Community, and to our beloved kids.

This is the message on the inside of the card.
P.S. I want to dedicate this card especially to my dear brother and his wife that every year, kindly get me most of this beautiful stuff with them from the U.K. each time they come to visit, otherwise I wouldn't be able to participate to these challenges. (((( Hugs))) to you both.xx
I am a Religous Sister, and have been for the last 21 years. I have always had a love for drawing, collages, and anything to do with art and crafts. Some years back started to draw and paint posters, and cards once in a while. About three years ago I decided to have a go with real cardmaking, and have been hooked since! I also use this hobby to involve kids I take care of, and they love to make cards themseves to the people they love! :)
I think that when you give someone a hand crafted card, you are showing that you really care, and is worth to spend time and money on her/him to make him something unique.. a part of yourself!
Presently my days are full of kids, kids who live in a Children's Home, kids who are so energetic and burst with life.. and I really love each and every one of them. We make each other's day, and they are also so very proud of me and my cards!
