Every year my husband's parents have a a tradition to give all the grand kids pj's. I remember how much the kids loved that tradition. Now that they're older they still give everyone something that matches. This has always been such a fun tradition.

So when I saw this adorable image I knew it was the one I needed to do. Don't you just love how cute this image is? My inspiration can from a polka dot Dixie plate...Looks just like the pj bottoms. Our sponsor this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday  is Whimsey Doodle. We love Melyssa sweet images.

  1. Gosh Arlana this is so darn cute! I just love this darling girl in her PJs, especially in these fun and bright colors. The squares on your card look like little packages bundled with that wonderful bakers twine. I love your story on the Christmas PJ tradition - how wonderful that is. Want you to know that I'm thankful to be on your team - it is such a great one and fun too. Have a terrific Thanksgiving!

  2. Oh Arlana! This is so cute. I love the vibrant colours & her wee pjs are very sweet. My girlies love getting their new pjs on on Christmas eve ready for Santa coming. Hope you are well :)


  3. Arlana, your card is absolutely precious. I do love your color scheme. It is so bright and fun. I would love to see this card for real. I am sure the camera doesn't do it justice. The added twine makes everything pop. Such a nice contrast. I have been doing the PJ gift giving with my grand kids for Christmas each year. It is a fun tradition. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family. Love ya, Nancy

  4. Oh I loved reading about your family holiday tradition with the pj's! And you're right, an absolutely perfect image!! Adorable card Arlana. Happy Thanksgiving.


  5. Hi Arlana - your chosen image is so sweet and coloured in lovely. I love the citrus colour scheme you have chosen as well. Gorgeous. Happy Thanks Giving - Michelle x

  6. awwww, how adorable Arlana, I love the bright colors and adding the twine to your ribbon just gives it that extra cuteness.

  7. Hey Arlana, I am sorry to be visiting so late...hope your holiday was wonderful. I would love to have a pair of pj's just like these!! Your colors are beautiful and great paper choices. Tfs

  8. Hi Arlana, Sorry I'm so late this week commenting it's been one of those weeks. Love your card especially the colours and image I know the tradition it was PJ's at Easter they were better for you than Easter Eggs from an Auntie and as we were going into Winter it was a great idea. Take care and have a lovely week.


Have a Sweet day!!!
