One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Freshly Made Sketches # 10

Here is the sketch for this week.  I turned it on its side and decided to do another Christmas Card...I am really working on getting a good stash of these cards made.  I pulled out my Papertrey Ink Stamp "Believe".  I paper pieced the Santa using some paper from the PTI Fall Prints & Patterns Package...the paper on each side of the Santa is also from that same set.  I love this Santa...He is just so country to me...and I do "Believe"!
Would you like to join in the fun at Freshly Made Sketches?  Go here to check out the cards made by the design team and you may find yourself a "Perfect Princess" for a week...I can give you first hand experience that I am getting a LOT of attention from the DH... I was a Perfect Princess last week (what a surprise for me!) and he keeps making comments about taking care of the "princess"...come on ladies, give it a try...I am shooting for the Queen spot...can't imagine how he will react if I were to ever win that honor!!  Of course his comment was:  "Do these ladies know what they are doing to all the husbands who have to live with these "Perfect Princess's or the Queen"...Ha ha...I think it is fabulous!!
