Meljen's Designs - Sweet Sketch Wednesday

Hello there Sweet Sketch Wednesday friends!!  Hope you are all doing well and are enjoying some holiday crafting!!  We had a weekend of birthday celebrations in my family.  My daughter will be 28 on the 10th of December and my son turned 25 on the 19th of November.  We had a birthday dinner Saturday night and a party on Sunday for my Great Nephew Axel who turned 4 on Tuesday!!  Lots of fun seeing family and friends and celebrating together!!   I did manage to get some cards made but have also realized I have a long way to go with my Christmas cards...  and the beat goes on...

Melissa is giving 4 non-colored digis to this week's winner!!  How awesome is that??  So, check out Arlana's great sketch, get out your papers and get crafty!!  I chose this cute skating penguin taking a "break" to say hello to his little friend =)


Can't wait to see your creations!!  They always make me SMILE!!

                    Blessings to you all - have a great week!!


  1. This is so darn cute Sally! I love the "ice" done with the crystal lacquer, that hounds-tooth paper (I like hounds-tooth anything)and the distressing. Sounds like you've had a wonderfully busy time with all the family birthdays. I love family gatherings this time of year - really puts you in the spirit of Christmas. Have a terrific week!

  2. Hi Sally, I love the dark rich colors and papers you have used on this card. You can really feel the warmth. Such a cute image too. It is always so fun to get together with family. Birthdays are always a good time to do that. We have some coming up this month too. Have a blessed week.
    Hugs, Nancy

  3. Sounds like you have been busy with Birthdays!

  4. A month of celebrations!!! And what a darling card you've created too Sally! Cute image! Love the sponging and your ribbon & button. Perfect in every way. Enjoy the day.


  5. Wow a month of celebrations, it was my birthday last Friday and our Wedding anniversary next Wednesday 12-12-12 that will only happen once in a life time and all those fellow Sagittarian friend of mine and Arlana too. Very cute card this week and I just love those ear muffs with that extra bling and sparkle. This is a perfect masculine Christmas card and your added red button is the perfect embellishment for your design papers. Take care and have a wonderful week.
