Sweet Sketch Wednesday #80

Happy Wednesday!!

Oh, are you counting down the days till Christmas? Well it is hard to believe we only have 9 more shopping days left! I do have all my shopping done, and managed to get a few presents wrapped yesterday, with more to do today. Then the next few days will be filled with baking as I have a cookie exchange on Saturday with friends.

Well let's get on to the new sketch this week at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. Arlana has another fun packed sketch for you again this week and it is another one that I have added to my  favorites files.
