Snow Buddy
Sweet Sketch 81

Wow, just a few more days until Christmas!  I do have to say this year has flown by for me.  The years are actually going faster and faster.  I do not think that I am imagining it!
I have tried to simplify a little more this year but I still need to learn, "How to Not Stress!"

This week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday our sponsor is Fresh Brewed Designs!  Oh how I love Heather's images!  Heather use to be on our SSW DT.  She is a fabulous lady who loves the Lord and promotes her products with that in mind!  She has even created some beautiful religous images...some of which I have happily loved using.  We also love her wintery images and for the second year in a row we are again showcasing her winter images...There are many more than our DT has used this week so please look around and enjoy Heather's site.

This is Arlana's new sketch for this oval inside a circle!

This image is called "Snow Buddy." 
When you look at this little guy, you feel like he could actually give you a big hug for the holidays!
For our lucky weekly winner...Heather is offering
