Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch # 233 Sponsor DigiStamp Boutique

Welcome to another wonderful Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
I don't know why I'm even doing the countdown for 
Christmas as I'm just so disorganised this year.

Congratulations to our winner and to our top 3 cards great work everyone.

Sketch #233

Here's my card using a DigiStamp Boutique
WADDLE WITH XMAS PUDDING.  This sketch is really easy and a great way to use up those scraps.

Look I've stitched my first card, yes its's the first time I've ever stitched a card.  I had the sewing machine out mending my son's shorts so I thought why not stitch my card.

This week our sponsor is 
Sally-Ann Hancock to owner and designer of 
DigiStamp Boutique.

What a little cutie! Love your color combo as well as the stitching and one of my favorite things is music sheet paper. Just the cutest card ever.
Mia plays soccer all year, so she ( WE) never really get a break. Maybe about 4 weeks in late spring or early summer but her coach makes her train. I am very excited I head down to FL for the Soccer nationals with Mia the first week in Dec, so looking forward to the warm weather, it is too cold up here in the north! She will be doing all the work down there and I get to bask in the sun and read books! How are your boys? Do you get a break from school soon?
Hugs, Heide

Kathie, everything about your card says "Gorgeous" I love the image. Infact, it was one I was looking at to use. The brown and teal color combo is one I have always loved. Thanks Kathie, for always remembering me. You never forget birthdays, or other events in my life. I wish I was that good at remembering your Bday. You are a very special person and I love you for that. The other day when you said you were thinking about me at this time, it was just what I needed someone to say.
Thanks for very much..Hugs, Nancy

I don't know what I loved more about this card this week, the cream and teal color scheme or the name of the digi (who is pretty much THE cutest thing ever!) Who doesn't want to eat figgy pudding with "Waddle". Honestly, after Christmas dinner, I seem to waddle myself! Great job this week!
