Beate’s weekend sketch challenge #62 October 17, 2008

I do apologize.  I have been missing in action lately with no real time to post what I’ve been up to (or reply to emails).  I feel like I should explain.  The 6 week Stampin’ Up! Business Boot Camp that I joined ends this week; SCS Fan Club gallery released this past Wednesday; holding workshops; picked up more hours working at the hospital; working on monthly project to submit to Stampin’ Up!; and finally, I have a presentation tomorrow for fellow demos that I’ve been spending a lot of time on.  Sigh!!!  I’m so thankful for my family.  They see me working hard trying to meet deadlines, and they offer help wherever they can:) 

I always look forward to Fridays and Beate’s wsc.  Here is what I came up with for today:

Honestly, took about 20 minutes to make this one.  I think I may post a revision next week with more details/features lol.   Gasp…I even cut the ribbon a little wacky:) at the top.  I’m seeing a lot of black and white cards lately, so I gave it a try with a splash of pink. 

Check out the sites of these amazing stampers for more takes on the sketch:

Cambria Turnbow, Charmaine Ikach, Jenn Balcer, Laurie Schmidlin, Lori Craig, and Sharon Harnist.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a relaxing, wonderful weekend!

    I do miss seeing your work when you don’t get to post often, but I’m very glad that the reason you’re short on time is because you’re doing so good with your business!

    I wish I could live close enough to hear your presentation. I’d love to hear what you’ve prepared!

    Good luck and have fun!

    I love this MJ. I love the pink and black! The butterfly is awesome. I had to laugh at your comment about posting a revision. I have 2 cards sitting at home that need ‘revision’ before I can post them. This week has been crazy busy. LOL!

    Here’s to a slow down and some happy stampin’ time!
