It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

This is Arlana posting this week from Snowy Utah. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas here. I thought I would show you a little Christmas from my house. I love to design all kinds of crafts. This is my snowman tree in the hall of my house. I need to give a big thanks to my son, Colton, for decorating my tree. I hope it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas at your house too. Christmas is one of my favorite times of year.

Just a little joy from my house to yours. Hope you have a very Merry Christmas.

I want to say a Big Thank You to all my dedicated followers. The ones who wished me Happy Birthday and all the ones who love my Sketches. It makes my day when I read your SWEET comments.

  20. Great sketch!! This time I made a birthday card and a christmas card with this sketch.
    Thank you Ladies for the lovely comments you always leave on my blog.

  21. Great sketch as always and the DT cards are once again stunning. I love Digistamp Boutique images and have a few myself. Great to see some non-Christmas cards from the DT too- I must get back to making 'normal' cards again soon, but some how the snowy scenes and festive cheer seem just right for the moment (the snow part at any rate). Thanks for sharing the photo of your tree with everyone- it looks lovely. I can't wait to go home to my parents to see the tree.

  22. Your tree is beautiful! Did you make the tree skirt, too? I love it! I think my cats would, too. It looks mighty comfy and they love to lay under the tree. LOL. Thanks, as always, for the inspiration from your DT. I love how they take the same sketch and yet each card is uniquely wonderful.

  23. Hi Ladies!
    I know it has been a while. I was in Hawaii, then had Thanksgiving and that flowed into Christmas shopping. But Im back! Thanks for the great sketch and wonderful inspiration!

  24. Congratulations to last weeks winners;)
