My favorite so far is from SCS, sketch SS175.
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=346067

The reason is because I was really happy with the card I created using this sketch.

I have just started doing sketches to improve my cardmaking skills. Thank goodness for them. Here is a weekend sketch from Beate that I liked the layout. It is pretty typical of what I usually do.

Congratulations on all your hits. One of my favorite sketches is one of Taylor's cupcake sketches. I have it posted here along with a card I made using her sketch.

My favorite of all time has already been mentioned. SC175.......I just love the flow of the half circles and have seen many great cards using that sketch. It would work well on a page I be thinkin'.

Nancy Riley said...

Silke, Congrats on the 80,000 hits! Very exciting, and you're celebrating generously, my friend!

I skimmed through my sketch book, and there are so many fantastic sketches out there! I guess the sketches I favor have multiple layers, and helps in creating a natural-looking layout, instead of looking like the card was created to fit the sketch ... kwim?

One of my favorites is Julee Tilman's Mojo Monday #25 ... http://poeticartistry.blogspot.com/2008/02/mojo-monday-week-25.html ... it offers a great natural balance!

peanutbee said...

Wow, Silke...GREAT blog candy! I'm sure a lot of people will be signing up for this (once they research their sketch, of course). I knew right away what sketch to give you....the one I always go back to: MOJO#12

Here's the link: http://poeticartistry.blogspot.com/2007/11/mojo-monday-week-12.html
