Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #120

Merry Christmas
Milly and Presents
Welcome everyone, did you know that we only have 13 weeks to go and we'll be celebrating Christmas for another year and 2012 will be just around the corner???

  New Zealander's are really getting behind the Rugby World Cup.  Small towns are really getting out in force promoting their adopted team, cars going past with flags flying to whom they follow.  My boys are just loving it and watching what games they can on Television.

Today is Wednesday and that means it's Sweet Sketch Wednesday congratulations to our winner this week and our top 3, awesome work and there is just so much creativity our there it's amazing.  Arlana has another wonderful sketch for you to play with this week and the design team are always so lucky to play with our wonderful monthly sponsor Sally-Ann Hancock the owner of

Sketch #120

This week the design team have been lucky to work with Sally-Ann's images from DigiStamp BoutiqueSweet Sketch Wednesday are so lucky to have Sally-Ann as our monthly sponsor. 
Sally-Ann has so many amazing images to choose from to cover every ones taste, style and occasion.  When I went to make my card I realised I hadn't ordered an image from Sally-Ann, I'm doing an Arlana trick this week,  but I knew I had a lot of images on my computer I could choose from.

This image is Milly with Presents I love this image but noticed that Sally-Ann has this image as one of her retiring images so pop over to DigiStamp Boutique and pick it up now for only .99p.  There are plenty of images to choose from.
This week DigiStamp Boutique are offering our very lucky winner

Hello Kathie, yeah you did a Christmas card. Love this adorable mouse and your papers are so pretty. I really like the die you framed him with. Once when I was young, my best friend Mark and I talked his mom into letting us buy a white mouse. She made me call home before she would get it while we were out shopping (pay phone as this was before cell phones,lol). We took turns a week about keeping him. Can't understand whatever got into me, even at that age. So now I just get my kicks with stamped mice. Hope you have a great week.

Peace & Luv,

Yikes!! When you say 13 week until Christmas, it makes me realize I better get hopping and start my shopping. Your mouse card is so cute. This is an image I have loved for a long time. I love the little pom pom you have added and your die cut is darling.
Your papers and ribbon are perfect. The Rugby sounds like a whole lot of fun. I bet your boys and DH are really enjoying it. Have a grat week Kathie.
Hugs, Nancy

Awk Kathie, I didn't want to think about how quickly Christmas is creeping up lol!!! Your card is gorgeous, beautiful papers & fab die cut. I had a pet mouse in my early teens (not as cute as this one) I used to take it everywhere with me in my pocket, now I'd run a mile if a saw one lol!
