SWEET Sketch Wednesday!!

Merry Christmas!!!  What a wonderful few days this has been...  Great to see family, we gathered at my brother and sister-in-law's house on the Cape Saturday.  Love to get pictures of the next generation, they are all growing up so fast - this group ranges in age from 7 months to 10 years old!!

We were missing the newest member of the family, Jack just 6 weeks old - he arrived with his parents in New England on Christmas Eve!!  I was so excited to finally meet him!!  We had our Christmas Eve gathering at my sister and brother-in-law's house... complete with a visit from Santa!!

Before the gathering, we had a wonderful Christmas Eve service where we celebrated the reason for the season - the birth of  Jesus who came so that we may have life... eternally.

My heart is full and my body is tired, and I am thankful for so many things one of which is that tomorrow my office is closed =)

Lots to do...  Before I go on babbling, let me share this week's Sketch with you from Sweet Sketch Wednesday - Our Sponsor is Jodie over at Bugaboo Digi Stamps!!  LOVE her stuff!!  Be sure to visit and have a look...  always something new to see =)

Sweet Sketch Wednesday and Pattie's Creations

Welcome friends!!  How is your December going??  I just love this time of year!!
I've been having some computer problems, so I'm a little late with my post for this week's Challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday, sorry about that...  This week our Sponsor is Pattie's Creations!!  Pattie Gomez Bio:
"I am an Internet Technology Professional and an Artist. I always dreamed of being an artist, but I found out quickly that I needed another field to support my family so I pursued a Degree in Information Technology. I love to use Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Fireworks to enhance my work.
I created a character called Pattieboop and her cat named Allie. I have had so much fun coming up with different images so I also created a site to sell them. You can go to my store to find out more about Pattieboop & Allie. I know you will just love them when you see them."
Pattie has so many wonderful images, be sure to head on over to check them out!!

Here is this week's Sketch...

...and here is my card =)

This image reminds me of my Mom.  She loved to keep her bird feeders filled and watch for the cardinals, her favorite!!  I colored the image in with Copics and added some Stickles.  The papers are a new pad I just got from Kaiser Kraft.  The ribbon, netting and flower are all from my stash.

Thanks so much for visiting.  I hope you visit Sweet Sketch Wednesday and see the rest of the Design Teams cards.  I would love to have you play along with us!!

Blessings to you!!
