Sweet Sketch Wednesday #184 - A Day for Daisies

Welcome Wednesday!!  Hope you have had a great week/weekend and are full swing into Christmas preparations and celebrations!!  I went on a local churches house tour this past Sunday afternoon.  So much fun going thru four houses and seeing the individuality in styles and decorations.  With Christmas being the celebration of our Savior's birth, I just love seeing all the different Nativitys!!  Each home had at least one Nativity set displayed, some in the kitchen, living room or dining rooms...  the one that struck me the most was on a dresser in a bedroom, very simply displayed.  The Owner told my friend and I that it was from Africa where her daughter had served as a short-term missionary.  The pieces are all crafted from corn husks - so very delicate. 

I love the simplicity of this Nativity!!

On to our Challenge... 

I loved all of your creations last week and would like to say a big CONGRATS to DEANNA #5, last week's winner!! 

Please pick FOUR non-colored images from Melissa's store HERE:, then email Dee at:
with your choices and she will take care of you.  Also, there were so many awesome cards last week, it was hard to pick our Top Three...  Congrats to:

          1. SARAH STONE #9

          2. CARLA SUTO #1

          3. CASSIE T #3
