'Shop Till You Drop' Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #76

Lulabelle Shopping
Connie with Present

Good morning and it's a glorious hot spring morning in New Zealand we have had such amazing weather for Spring this year so I'm so looking forward to summer. Christmas is just around the corner and I've hardly done any Christmas shopping, I've been quite slack really. My boys are at that age I don't know what to buy them Liam is 11 and Ryan is 9. I'm thinking of a Table Tennis Table, and some new Cricket gear for Liam, but they would like a PSP each we'll see!!!
It's another wonderful Wednesday morning and that can only mean one thing that's right it's
Sweet Sketch Wednesday and this week Arlana has designed another one of her wonderful sketches.

Love both your cards Kathie!!! Aren't Sally-Ann's images so easy to work with??

It is a Canadian winter wonderland here - almost fit for Christmas. Right now (though the sun hasn't risen yet), it is -18C out. Good thing I got my snow tires put on!!

Have a great week.

Hi Kathie! Two fabulous cards you've created here!! The colors are what grabbed me right away with them both -- the striking black and teal of the first one and the fun festive orange of the second one. Fun, fun, fun!!! Have a great day!

Both of these cards are just delightful Kathie! I love the black and white - that splash of teal really makes the image pop. And the colors of the second are dreamy! Love all the bling you've added - a girl just has to have lots of sparkly bling! You sure have a flair for pulling together interesting papers and colors. Great job!
