Sketch 134 with ADFD....

Whew, can you believe it is the last Wednesday of 2011? I hope the past few weeks have been full of love, family, friends and enjoyable activities for all of you. Our holiday season has been wonderful!
I must admit that I am glad to be getting back in the swing of things and back to a routine and time to create and visit. I have missed you all during this holiday time.

Our sketch this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday

For my card this week I used "A Child's Prayer" from A Day for Daises who is this week's sponsor. If you are this week's Grand Prize winner, you will get a $12 gift certificate to use in Tammy's store, choosing your very own beautiful stamps.

Congrats to last week's winners and top picks, we appreciate you and your support.

I wanted to keep a monochromatic look for my card, so I used the black and cream for my palette.

Be sure and stop by the SSW blog to check out the teams beautiful work for this week and grab some inspiration.

Hugs to you all and wishing you a Happy New Year and the best in 2012!
Hope to see you soon.
