    Hi Beate: Thanks for another great sketch! I’ve been wanting to use my Eastern Blooms set for so long now but didn’t know quite where to begin with it – this sketch gave me a great starting point, thanks again 🙂

  2. Yeah & welcome back! I hope you had a terrific time with your hubbie. We wish him all well. I get to play- how fun is that? For the record, I thought I followed the sketch pretty well- and now I’m not sure, but hey- that’s alright…the point is I tried! It’s a very simple card, but I like it! I’ll be using this as one of my Stamp Camp’s stamp-a-stack…
    Here you go:

    Oooh! Lucky number 7! I love this sketch! I was trying to figure out what to do with all the long notes I have accumulated that are no longer in the SU catalog, so this sketch was PERFECT! Thanks, Beate!

    Two for the price of one from me today :-). I thought the sketch flipped round was perfect for a stamp I’d promised to use for DH, and then I made another one without flipping it today. Thanks, Beate, for providing just the perfect sketch for the card I needed to make!
