Sweet Sketch Wednesday 215 ~

Happy Sweet Sketch Wednesday 215!  The ever faithful monthly sponsor for this challenge is DigiStamp Boutique!

Well, Merry Christmas in July to you, and if you are one of my close personal friends I hope you are sitting down!  I say that to all others out there, because I typically don't do a whole lot for this particular holiday normally.  I usually choose to celebrate it in a small, personal and private way, since the commercialism of it all makes me a little crazy!

Anyway, I do make cards to send and give to close friends and family, so now I've got one done, hooray for me!  I was trying to make the flowers look like some pretty red and pink poinsettias that I saw last year, but I'm not sure I accomplished that?

Jasper the mouse and his little birdie friend were just too adorable to pass up, and I had a really fun time with this sketch.  I know you will too, and I can't wait to see what you come up with!  Don't forget to check out the rest of the Design Team Diva's creations as well, and show them some love.  The Grand Prize winner will receive 6 free digital images of the winner's choice.

Jasper is Adorable. One down is good, a start for the year. (I used to make at least 50 handmade cards. The number is way down now! ) Happy Hump Day and stay as cool as possible. hugs

Hi Jeannie I love your Christmas card, this is a great image and I've used it so often and it always looks awesome. Love your design papers and your great add embellishments. You're so organised making Christmas cards in July, I've got three birthday and two get well cards to make in the next week and go away for a few days with the family. I just wish there more hours in a day and days in a week LOL. Take care and have a great week.

Your flowers are beautiful Jeannie.

I've been trying to put off starting on Christmas for as long as possible, but I think I am going to have to start. I have such a huuuge family that I should really have started in February.

I love your papers and your glitter.

Have a great week.
