Last Christmas Card and Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #88



Last Christmas Card 

Do you remember when Christmas lasted 
a whole week not just a day? 
I miss those days! 
 I have one last Christmas card to
see the Holiday Season off! 

Well we have Valentine's Day, Easter, Spring, and so much more 
to look forward to. I know I'm pretty excited for my 
birthday. I don't know where we are going I just
know we are going for a week! My DH is surprising me 
this year. I don't think he is going to give me any hints either.
 I will keep you updated if I learn anything new! 

Here's this week sketch:

Happy Birthday and Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge



Today is my DH birthday! 
Happy Birthday, A! Love you!

I probably should be posting a birthday card for this 
challenge but I'm not! Instead I made a Christmas card.
 I have to say I am a true red, white and green 
Christmas girl through and through but this black, white and red
combination is very pretty, too.


The paper pad I used is DCWV Candy Cane Lane. 
The stamps are from the $1 bin at Michaels, the twine is 
from Walmart, button is from my stash. 

Here's the sketch for the week! I love it. 
Hop on over to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Blog and join
