SSW2 and Digi Stamp Boutique

Welcome friends!!  One week and it's Christmas!!  Are you ready...?  I do have a lot to do (putting up the tree would be nice...), but in the midst of all the Christmas bustle, shopping, wrapping, work... I am keeping the true meaning of Christmas first and foremost in my thoughts, the birth of Jesus!!  So thankful for this beautiful time of year and for the many reminders of why we celebrate...  because of that, I am ready!!

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 has a definite Christmas feel this week with so many wonderful Christmas cards created by the Design Team.  We have Sally-Ann of Digi Stamp Boutique as our Sponsor this week.  She has the most wonderful Christmas images as well as images for any occasion!!  I just love to browse through her shop.  I do hope you will visit and do the same =)

Here is this week's Sketch...

Even the Sketch has a Christmas feel to it!!

and...  here is my card using "Cheeky Monkey Christmas"

I'll tell you a little secret...  I have been so busy, and am getting over a sinus infection which was with me for too many weeks and left me just exhausted.  Well, I got up early this morning, put my card together, but because my lap top died, I couldn't print the image until I got to work.  So, I brought along some nice sharp scissors, some Copics and finished my card at work.  Well, what I forgot was to bring an appropriate marker for the little penguin's geek and feet...  so, Sharpie hi-liter's to the rescue.  I can't say I love the bright orange, but I am glad I was able to get my card finished and posted and No ONE will miss that little penguin!!

Well, that's it for this week's post, I so appreciate each and everyone of you that stops by!!

Blessings to you!!
