  43. #67
    Nice sketch Beate, gave me the opportunity to use dramatic DP from “Urban Garden” which otherwise might languish in my cabinet, LOL. Thanks!

  44. I was going to be done stamping today and I had to browse over to your blog and catch this sketch. It kinda yelled to me, because I am a symmetrical kind of girl and I need to work through that! So I pulled out some papers and went to it. Thanks for a great sketch!
