Sketches in Thyme using the following sketch. This past Thursday, one of my favorite days of the year occurred. Our local radio station changed over to 24/7 Christmas music. I love Christmas. I actually love the lead up to Christmas more than anything. And one of the things I loved to do when my girls were little was to dress them up and take their picture for our family Christmas card. This particular year was one of my favorites. I loved their velvet black dresses, their curls, their innocence. When I saw the Carta Bella Christmas Delivery collection, I instantly thought of these pictures. I completely adhered to this sketch because the design allowed for the use of a variety of papers.
