SNSS Sweet Stop Sketch #12

Hello, and good afternoon! Nope! You're not seeing things! I'm sharing a Christmas Card today. There's a Christmas In July Celebration going on at Sweet -n Sassy Stamps!! These digital images are two of three that you can get for free. You can find all the details here.

If you like this sketch, please be sure to join us at The Sweet Stop and enter your submission. I'd love to see what you come up with with the same sketch! Sketches are so great, because the hardest part of the work is done for you. At least the layout is the hardest part for me!!

I tried to work this sketch with both the card and the gift tag. The gift tag was a little tricky, but I was happy with the end result.
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! We had a great dinner last night! Trevor cooked my ribeye steak to perfection. I seriously thought about the elk steak with the cranberry merlot sauce, but that ribeye was just calling my name!! We enjoyed a nice evening visiting with Mary Ellen and my sister-in-law, Kim who manages the lodge. Tonight we are off to a rodeo. My niece, Bailey is barrel racing. This will be the first time I've seen her ride her new horse. Oh yeah! I almost forgot! I need to share the pictures of Bailey's surprise!! I will try to do that tomorrow, and maybe I'll get some good shots of her tonight. I'm loading up on the bug spray, grabbing the lawn chair, and heading out! Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and God bless!
Love Ya!

These are both absolutely beautiful. I have to say that I'm especially fond of the snowman. I love the pretty glittery snow and snowflakes. Your cards always have such a warmth about them!
