Have fun creating! I can’t wait to see what you come up with.

SCS submissions

I haven’t had a chance to make a new sample yet. This week has been crazy with SCS work, kids school projects and prepping for Rebecca’s birthday. My baby is turning 9 today! We already made cookies to take to school. I am about to bake her birthday cake. We will have a party at home tomorrow with Cup cake decorating, hoola hoop contest, egg races and waterballoon fight.


I did use this sketch on Tuesday’s Inspiration challenge card.

I had a feeling I wouldn’t get to stamp much this week. I am sorry about that. Next week! I will stamp a lot next week! Hugs and smiles

    I love this fun sketch. I managed to get one done last night. here’s the link:

  69. #86 Here is my card. I am not sure it really meets the requirements. If it doesn’t, I am sorry! I was going to add a little rectangle behind my “Hi” but decided it didn’t look good! Thanks so much for another fun sketch though.

    Here is my take on your sketch Beate – I did change it a little though….LOL!


  73. This is the first time I have entered any kind of a challenge like this. I put my card on Splitcoast Stampers and put WSC45 in as the keyword. Then you talk about putting in the link into my comment.
    There it is. I wasn’t sure if you meant to put the link only if I have done my card on some other blog or website. Anyway there always has to be a first time to try something!
    I guess I am number 90!
    I love your stuff Beate!!

  74. Thanx for the inspiration! This one is my little gift card holder that grew! Here’s my take on the layout:

  75. #93 Hi Beate! Here is another card that I made, just in case the first one didn’t quite meet your requirements. I really enjoyed this sketch! It was lots of fun and I loved how I could make it as simple or complex as I wanted! Thanks so much for everything you do!

  76. #94 Here is my card:
