Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #118-49

Congratulations On Your Engagement

Two Hearts Beat As One

Good morning everyone, it's count down here in New Zealand and it's only two days to go until the opening of the Rugby World Cup being held in the main cities in New Zealand.
It's 23 years ago that it was here last and that New Zealand won the cup.  We have one of the best Rugby teams in the world the Might 'ALL BLACKS'  and we haven't won the cup since so they have every advantage this year as they are the home team and have the home crowd to back them,  so hopefully the World Cup will be ours again by the end of October as it only happens every 4 years.

  My boys can't wait.


Today is Wednesday and that's got to mean two things it's the middle of the week and it's

Congratulations to our winner this week and our top 3, wow what a job having to choose from all those wonderful entries as there were so many amazing cards and such talented ladies.  I was absolutely stunned with everyone's creativity.

Both of your cards are gorgeous, Kathie. I love the pink one with the added little hearts. So cute. But, I would have a hard time picking my favorite. They are both so adorable. I love how you added your original card from the past. What a great idea. Have a great time watching the Rugby. I hope that the Mighty Blacks win. That would be awesome. Have a wonderful week.
Hugs, Nancy
