  70. Beate, your sketch helped me out in a pinch. I had my open house Friday and Saturday but I didn’t like my second make-n-take. During my open house on Friday my Stampin’ Up! supply order came with my Sale-a-bration stamp sets. I grabbed your sketch and new Sale-a-bration set and whipped this out. Thanks so much!

  94. It’s 8:47 CST, wasn’t sure what time zone you are in, so this may be late. I had this done a couple of days ago, but couldn’t get a good picture of it due to our weather.
    Anyway I love how it turned out and was excited to be able to do another of your sketches.
