Merry Christmas



Well hello Friday!  How's this Friday treating you?  Off to work and then it will be a cousin weekend with Pat's brother/sister-in-law and kids coming in for the weekend!  We're looking forward to lots of cousin play time in between baseball and lacrosse games for our nephew.  The whole gang is coming over Saturday night for a family/father's day cookout.  It will be busy, but fun for sure!

Before I go, I have a card to share for the current Retro Sketch. When I saw this card of Cristina's, I immediately thought of berries for a Christmas card. The sketch was the perfect chance to try it out.  I think I'll be making more of these!  And...this is also going to be entered for the Cloud9 Anything Goes challenge.
