  2. Another great sketch, thanks Beate! Hope you are feeling a little brighter today :)

  3. Beate, I loved this sketch and will use it over and over again . . . thanks so much for all the contributions you make to the stamping & blogging world. I’m so sorry to hear about some hurtful accusations towards you . . . please enjoy some well-deserved downtime with your book & kiddos today. Big hugs!

  4. We LOVE you, Beate! Great sketch too!

  5. Thank you for posting the sketch today. Was afraid you might not after yesterday. Don’t know if I could survive without your sketch! Big, big, big HUGS, Beate. We love you more then you could possible know!

  6. Thanks for the sketch! I had fun with this one.


  7. Fun sketch Beate, I hope to play. DH took my camera on a motorcycle trip, but I can have my card ready for when he returns.

  8. Thanks Beate for another awesome friday sketch. I really enjoyed this one and, like mentioned, I will be using it again for sure. Hope you have a wonderful day my friend:) {{{HUGS}}}

  9. Awesome sketch, Beate, thanks!!

    Here’s my Ants in a Picnic Basket card:

  10. Hi Beate! FAB sketch girl! I love the clean look and it’s gotten me back to simple…love that!
    I’ve made TWO and put them in the SCS gallery and will upload to my blog shortly. Don’t need to enter me in the draw…I just LOVE to participate!
    Hugs to you…hope your day is going better!

  11. Hey Beate – here is my submission for your WSC51. Great Sketch!!!

  12. Hope you are feeling a bit better today …love& smiles

  13. This looks like a fun sketch-great for a longer card. I LOVE your work, Beate! My friends call their cards “kindergarten” cards compared to yours! One note on the mix-up over at SCS–it seems that three people editing and changing the directions on a tutorial does NOT sound intentional. I’ve only been reading these blog sites for about six months. I have learned through your entries that you are an honest and caring individual. The fact that you are saddened by all this proves it. Keep up the great work!!

  14. Glad you’re back today! :) Here’s my card:

    I’m #12 this time (I think?)

  15. Thanks for the challenge Beate! :) Here’s mine:
    Lucky #14!LOL

  16. What a wonderful sketch Beate! Thanks for all you do! Here is my sketch….

  17. Hi! This is the first time I’ve posted an entry to your sketch challenge, although I like to try them when I can. Thanks for a super-simple sketch. Mine is posted on SCS.

    Thanks again, and have a great weekend!

  18. I think this is the first time I participated in your weekend sketch challenge, Beate. I combined it with SCS Limited Supplies challenge. Here’s my card —

    If the numbering is correct, I must be #19, after Rhonda.

  19. Thanks so much for this great sketch Beate! It really was great! I too will be using it more for sure! It would have been very easy if I hadn’t decided to paper tole everything and add wire to a tiny space! LOL! Here’s my card:

  20. here’s mine- have a great weekend

  21. 22. Here is the links to my cards. Love the sketch and had lots of fun playing!!! Have a great weekend!!!

  22. I can’t wait to get to try this sketch. I love it!! I’m stuck in a hotel though this weekend ’cause we had bad storms here and the power has been out for almost a day (some say it was a tornado, but I don’t think it was loud enough). My poor stamps are at home all alone. Oh well, at least I have a great sketch to try when I get home!!! I don’t know how you do it, week after week! Thanks, Beate!

  23. Thanks for a great sketch! This is my first time to play on the actual weekend that you’ve posted! Ha.

    I guess I’m #24, but I’m a demo and don’t mind being left out of your drawing.

    Hi Beate! Thanks for a great sketch. I used this layout to create two very similar cards….one card I used Copic Markers and the other card I used Prismacolor pencils. Kinda fun to compare the two mediums.

  64. #74 – Thanx for the regular source of inspiration, Beate! Sorry to hear about the SCS accusations – it was unfortunate and I’m for one SO GLAD you take the time to do so much for us!
    Here’s my take on this weekend’s sketch challenge:

  65. Here’s my first ever Beate challenge! Just what I needed, a little early morning inspiration! Thanks to Christy S. for putting me on this site!

    Here’s my SCS submission:


  66. #77 I haven’t done one of your challenges in a long time. I really had fun with this sketch, and combined it with Sharon’s stamp simply challenge. Thanks, Beate, for sharing your sketch!

  67. Hi Beate! I hope you are having a FABULOUS weekend, my friend – sun and the beach should be on the agenda along with a good book :-)

    Here is my take on the sketch – it is fabulous, and I will be using this one again! No need to enter me in the drawing, I just like to play!


  68. #80 Hello Beate! I love this sketch! Thank you so much for sharing it! You can see my card here!

    Thanks for looking!

  69. Hi Beate, I started off doing your sketch. But then the owl was too big… and the I added the big circle sentiment…. and then I added the diploma… and the 3 panels are too similar. I love your sketch though and plan on trying again soon. If you’d like to see my evolving run-away sketch, it’s the 2nd card in this post.

  70. Hope you are having a great weekend. Here’s my shot at the sketch challenge:

    Thanks for the inspiration!

  94. #112 A last minute entry, Beate. It seems that I’ve been “late” all weekend. Thanks for a fun sketch challenge, that made me use some old papers and neglected stamps.

  95. #113 Heres my card using the sketch. Had to move the image to the left a bit to cover up an ink smudge. oops, LOL!

    Thanks for the challenge!

  96. #114

    Good Morning Beate. Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Here’s my card.

  97. Hi Beate, Thanks again for a wonderful Challenge! I had great fun playing with this one.
    Here are my creations……and thanks again!

  98. Sneaking this in before the deadline. #117….Thanks for a great challenge.

  99. Hey Beate :-)

    My card can be found at

    Thanks again for another great challenge!!

  100. Well, better late than never! Here’s my card. Have a great day.


  101. #120. I think I made it in under the clock. Thanks, Beate, for a great sketch.

  102. Well, I didn’t quite get linked up here in time before the drawing, but here it is anyway! lol!

    Thanks for the great sketch!

  103. #121 Hi Beate, so sorry about things that were said last week that made you feel bad. I don’t think most people felt like you did anything wrong so try to brush it off (easier said than done sometimes, I know!). Here’s my late entry for the challenge. I appreciate all the many things you do.

  104. Hi Beate,
    Hope you are feeling in better spirits today and also hope you AC is working! WAY toooooo hot out there for no AC. I know my card is late, but with DH health issues, I don’t get to stamp as often as I’d like (or as quickly). Anyways, here is my card for your fantastic sketch challenge: I hope you like it!! As you say, Hugs & Smiles!!

  105. Better late than never… Thanks, as always, for sharing your talents with us peons. :-)

  106. Well, better late than never, eh? I did have the cards made over the weekend but didn’t get them posted till today. For some reason I thought we had till Thursday to post. Oh well, I’ll share for your enjoyment.

    Thanks for always posting these great sketches!


  107. WSC51 Another late card, but they say “better late than never”. I have found that I love trying out some new layouts and love the challenge of doing someone else’s layout.

    So here’s mine:

  108. Loved using your sketch for my GSG swap, Beate! Thanks for the inspiration!
