Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #183 Sponsor Meljen's Designs

Good morning wow it's Wednesday here again and only 20 more sleeps until Christmas and I still have shopping to do!!! Oh why do I always leave to the last minute?  It's because I change my mind so much and procrastinate and if I buy things to early something better comes along later on and then I get disappointed.
Today being Wednesday means it's another wonderful 
Sweet Sketch Wednesday.   Congratulations to our winner and to our Top 3 cards awesome work ladies.  Before Arlana was taken sick she created all these wonderful sketches in advance for us to play with and this week is no exception.

I love your card Kathie! Beautiful details on it and that ribbon flower is out of this world! So perfect with this sketch and your pretty papers. I'm behind in my Christmas shopping too and a little more panicked seeing in your post here that there's only 20 more sleeps til Christmas! Not sure I'll get that many sleeps in with all I have left to do!

Have a great week ahead!

I love it when we use the same image. Great minds do think alike. I really love the netting you have used for the trim. So cool. I especially love the flower made out of ribbon. Such a cute idea. I hope you have a wonderful week ahead of you. I always look forward to your Christmas count down....I can't believe that is all the days left before Christmas. I have got to get busy.
Hugs, Nancy
