It is such a busy week here in the US as we prepare for Thanksgiving.  And, it is such a beautiful time of year.  The best part is being able to be together with family and friends.
So, from all the gals here at 
Sweet Sketch Wednesday,
we want to
wish all of our American blog friends a Happy Thanksgiving.
We have so much to be thankful for.
We hope you will take a moment and reflect on the wonderful blessings we have even though there are difficult times throughout the world. 

We have a fabulous sponsor this week.
