A Sweet Christmas Wednesday

Happy Wednesday everyone!!! Wow, was it ever windy last night! And talk about rain!!!The electricity was out for about 30 minutes, so Phillip studied by candlelight! But today is a new day and the sun is trying to shine. And since it's Wednesday you know what that means, it's a Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge day. Fun sketch, don't you think?! Now get your challenge hat on and play along because we have a wonderful sponsor.
Digi Doodle Shop is a fun place to shop. Such wonderful designs. The winner this week will receive a $10 gift certificate to shop away!!! Be sure and leave a comment on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog to be eligible to win.

Here's my card, using the image Nativity Scene. I absolutely love this image!!! I used my Copic markers on it, as well as a nestie to cut it out. Again, non-traditional Christmas colors as well. The sentiment comes from Clear Dollar Stamps' Our Saviour's Birth set. Please be sure and check out the rest of the DT creations here using this sketch. You will be so inspired.

It looks like you had a great time on your working vacation. I should take some of those....actually, that is what I always seem to do. I can never be totally away from my job. Glad you had a good time though. Your Christmas card is gorgeous Linda. I love the nativity too. You have done a beautiful job coloring it up! Have a great week! Nancy

Linda, the minute I saw your card....I just loved it! It is so beautiful! Your papers are so perfect and I love the three brads on each side of the image! Sounds like you had a good little storm. I am just a fair weather person...so I am having a hard time even thinking about winter but it is definitely on its way.
