Beate’s weekend sketch challenge #40 March 21, 2008

It’s Friday and that means it is time for another one of Beate’s wsc.  Wow!  #40 for her sketches.  I started participating in her challenges back when it was at #5 (somewhere around there), and have added to my personal card collection tremendously.  These challenges have been very motivating so I hope you give it a try.  This weeks sketch is quick and fun.

    Hi Mj!
    I just sent off my Artisan awards stuff too. YOurs sounds like it will be more awesome than mine lol. I started about 2 weeks ago, didn’t buy anything extra (kinda like a ‘ways to use it’ challenge lol) and it only cost me $25 to ship overnight… I can’t wait to see what you have made. I loved the stuff you made last year (I was looking thru the pics 2 nights ago).

    I do feel your pain w/the no sleep kinda thing! I’ll be at convention so I can’t wait. Good luck!

    Bobbie *Ü*

    p.s. Thanks for sharing those AWESOME sheets you hand out to your customers. If I started handing those out they might want them EVERY time lol.
