Sugar and Spice.......FMS65



I kept the sketch real simple this week at Freshly Made Sketches because who needs complicated this time of year?!?  I am one of "those" people who refuses to do anything Christmas until Thanksgiving dinner has been cleared. So as the Polar Express heads toward Christmas, things at my house are bustling.  I am finishing cards, shopping, wrapping - and starting tomorrow - baking! This sentiment is so sweet that I thought it should take center stage on my card.  It describes the atmosphere around here perfectly.  No time to chat today - there is a freshly cut tree on my porch waiting to be decorated!

Great card, Linda. I love that sentiment too but haven't used it yet. It's perfect here as the focus with a sweet Gingerbread boy to enjoy it!
