Under the Tree
Sweet Sketch 77

Well, it is Thanksgiving Eve and I just want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!  What a wonderful time to share and enjoy family.  Lots of preparations for me today.  I will me making apple pie, homemade rolls, cranberry sauce, cleaning the turkey and preparing the stuffing.  One year I bought Costco rolls and my family was so mad at me.  I just didn't know that it was a tradition!  We like pumpkin pie but they also prefer my apple pie over any pie. So that is a must too!  My daughter in law has a tradition of eating Chocolate Mousse Pie on Thanksgiving so she will bring the Chocolate Mousse. 
 Hope you have a delicious celebrations with your family!.
This is the fabulous sketch that my sister, Arlana, has for you this week at SSW!  I love the clean lines of this sketch and how it draws your eye to the focal point of your image!  I do hope you will take a few moments and look at what our DT has created for you this week at  SSW!

Bugaboo Stamps is our incredible sponsor this week!  I always have so much fun choosing a image from Jodie's store.  I love her style and the fun creations that she comes up with which are constantly being added to each month.  Jodie, the owner, at Bugaboo is offering
7 digi stamps valued at $21
to our Grand Prize Weekly Winner

The image I chose is called
A Kids View Under the Tree.

The one thing I want to share about my card is the embossing folder that I borrowed from Arlana.  It is called Cuttlebug Sledding.  I just love the look it gave.  If you will notice...the embossing is reversed.  Instead of being raised it is indented!  I just love the texture it gives.  I have looked at every craft store I have visited in the last two months...with no luck in finding it.  I will have to check the internet when I find a spare moment.  For my Christmas bulbs I used the Metal Dots...also one of my favorite embellishments!  The picture doesn't show it very well, but I also used puffy for his Santa Hat. Of course, the little star and button are from Arlana's Crafty Stash!
