CAS[E] this Sketch #252

I know you're all gearing up for Christmas, and I do want to wish you all a very, VERY Merry Christmas, indeed! 

There isn't a gift from any store that could compare to the gift you give me with each visit ... thank you, from the bottom of my heart!

Here is our Sketch - by the way it is a TWO week challenge, so you have plenty of time - perhaps you'll even have time to make more than one?  However many you make, know that we adore every single entry in our gallery... with that, here is our final for 2017, Sketch #252:


I think Chrissy was wrapping Christmas gifts when she dreamed this one, right?  This is where I was taken - from me to all of  YOU ...


Until next year, be safe, be well, and thank you for your kindness!!

=]  Michele

Supplies:  from E.H: Advent and Abstract Paint Strokes; Avery Elle Beautiful Bow; Delicata Gold ink; and Wplus9 black ink.
