The Sweet Taste of Peppermint and Hot Cocoa

It's really cold outside at my house so I could use some hot cocoa about now. I was way behind on doing my card this week. So much to do and so little time. I was asked to start teaching craft classes at my local Roberts crafts stores. I was asked last Wednesday and need to figure things out and have some displays ready for my first class. I will have another blog called Sweet Things Handmade. I hope you will follow me there too. I don't have any posts on there yet but will be getting that done in the next few days. There you will find my class projects for sell. Everything in a kit ready to put together. Also I will be selling some of my hand made cards.

Well on to this week's sketch . We are on week 81 with our sponsor Fresh Brewed Designs . Heather has so many adorable designs. She has added alot to her collection since she last sponsored us. You will want to go over to Fresh Brewed Designs and check out her SWEET Digis.  I fell in love with this adorable digi. It fits so perfectly with all of our snow as we just got dumped on today. It's really looking alot more like Christmas every day. Heather will be giving away 3 free digis to our lucky winner.

I just want to wish all my followers and players of Sweet Sketch Wednesday a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Hope you are able to relax and spend time with the ones you love.  Thanks for being such a sweet part of my week. Merry Christmas!!! Now why don't you bug on over and check out Sweet Sketch Wednesday!!!

  2. Hi Arlana, I have been wanting to call you but it has been so busy here I don't know which end is up. We may be getting snow tonight. And, We are going to Phoenix to see the Forgotten Caroles tonight. I always look forward to that. Your card is so cute and I don't know how you got it done in time.
