  38. I’m not so late with my card this week.

    Thanks so much Beate!!


  39. Hi Beate,
    Thanks for another great sketch. I was actually able to participate this week.
    here is my card.
    I counted the posts, and I am post number 43

  40. Hi Beate – this is my first try at one of your WSC. It is the card of the eP birthday ensemble for Jami’s challenge. I guess I’m #46…


  41. #47 Thank you for coming up with a great sketch. I hope all your viewers will help me out by voting for the cutest, most antique and most unusual colored Valentine at http://www/


  42. I made one, but I think I blew it. I looked at the sketch, and then went into another room to make my card and forgot it was horizontal. I made mine vertical. It wasn’t until I got back to my computer that I realized my mistake! It’s uploaded to SCS here: Thanks for the challenge though!


  43. Somehow one of the panels is missing! It’s funny, I thought about putting one on behind the buttons but then I thought, “No it’s not in the sketch”. LOL, I should have done it!
