  38. NUMBER 50! Wow, how exciting to get this in before the middle of next week!! Maybe this will be my magic number, now that I’m finally in the double digits, instead of triple!

    Lots of fun as usual, thanks for the awesome inspiration Beate.

  39. Hi! I just want to thank you for this sketch and your dahlia card. I had to make a teabag folding card for a swap I am involved in, and was totally blocked for any ideas with what to do with the fold we had to use. Nothing I came up with seemed to ‘fit’. Then I happened on your blog (am very new to reading blogs!) As soon as I saw your dahlia card with this sketch, I knew what to do with my medallion. I don’t have a blog, so have posted it on my Photobucket here so hope this is ok. Thanks again for your inspiration.

  40. Thanks for another fun challenge. It gave me the chance to try out my new Papertrey Ink stuff! Here’s my card:
