Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #127

Betty #3

Lenny Thank You Freebie

Good morning to everyone.  Wednesday's seem to get faster every week, it's because time is flying by with me and we only have 6.5 weeks until Christmas.  I have only one present purchased and I haven't made my traditional Christmas fruit cake yet.  I seem to be getting slacker and slower each year.
I know that my best friend will have her Christmas Tree up and the house decorated during November ready for the
1st December as she is very traditional and just adores Christmas.

Congratulations to our winner this week and to our Top 3 there were so many amazing creations we were spoilt for choice.

Today is Wednesday and that means it's
Sweet Sketch Wednesday
and Arlana has another wonderful sketch to share.

Good day Kathie, what a fun post today and loved the video...can you say intimidation!! Rick loved it! What gorgeous cards, I really like those star gems and your ribbon on your Betty card. What a lovely thank you card and your coloring is fabulous. I hear you about the holidays...I always have had good intentions and this year is the same, we'll see if it all comes together. I need to do a card count and see how close I am, I do have my list made and some things bought and ideas for the rest. I am making a few of my gifts and need to get those started. My goal is to have the shopping finished by Dec.1. Have a great week.
Hugs, Patti
