I had so much fun the last two weekends checking out everyone’s work with the sketches that I posted, that I decided to post one every Friday! You guys are so creative.

I liked how my Monkey card turned out yesterday.








ย That’s where my sketch comes from. I love this layout. It’s definitely one Iย use a lot.


If you decide you want toย play, please upload your card on your blog or in your splitcoast gallery and add a link to it in the comment section of this thread.

I will randomly draw a winner on Monday Morning 9 a.m. Central time and send out a few monkey images with a bit of ribbon.

  3. thanks! I like this sketch, so easy to use. I need to make some thank you cards, and I am stuck on squares right now.

  4. I missed last week’s deadline and I was so bummed. I’m going to work on this tomorrow. I dislike working at night, the lighting needs to be natural for me. That’s my excuse, anyway!

  5. here is my entry #1…can we do more than one?? i love this sketch!

  6. I’d actually never made a square card before now (call me a traditionalist), it was fun to try something new.

  8. Oh Beate!!! You are just a doll to be doing these challenges. I LOVED this sketch layout and was actually thinking about case-ing it before you did the challenge. Now you forced me to do it. And, let me say, I am sending vibes out to be the winner selected by the random generator because I want to play with the monkeys!!!

    Entry #33

  34. Yeah..I got to play today! (although it wasn’t easy–I had way too many helpers!!)
    Here is my card–

    Thanks for the challenge, Beate!

    Entry #34

  35. Here’s my take on the challenge – I must have made the card too small because when I went to place the main image I realized that I would have covered up most of the lace doily, so I moved it to the side. Hope it still counts!! I did plan on piercing the olive frame around the girl and do a faux stitch, but I forgot and it was too late – try to imagine it there – lol! I’ve had this girl image a couple of years and this challenge got me to pull it out and finally use it!http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/567288?cat=500&ppuser=39038

    Entry #43

  44. I’ve been reading your blog for awhile, but I’ve never commented. (Guess I’m more of an observer, than a “talker”. I love your stamping style; it’s so clean and fresh. I really liked doing this challenge. I’ve been in a stamping “funk” lately, but I had so much fun with this that I did two cards. Thanks so much for the fun challenge, Beate. Here are my two versions for this challenge: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=567514&cat=500&ppuser=59528

  45. Beate,
    These sketch challenges are just so irresistible! Thanks for sharing. I love the little square card. Here is my sample…I couldn’t get a good picture of it and I like the colors much better in real life. Looking forward to the next challenge!

  51. Great sketch Beate! I took a little liberty with the sketch and did a oval for my image layer (it just looked better that way). I’ll definately be using this sketch again. I’m happy that you’ll be posting a sketch on Friday’s…gives me something to look forward to.
