MMSC30 Hark The Herold Angels Sing

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!!! 
24 Days until Christmas!!!  Are you going to be ready in time? 

Have any of you endured the madness of Black Friday and gotten some good deals or some "Hot, hard-to-find items"?

How many of you are taking on the challenge of making all of your Christmas cards to send out this year?  Well, why not use the MMSC challenges to help you along?  It sure is helping me.  There never seems to be enough time in all the hustle and bustle of the holidays to step back and enjoy just creating some handmade cards or gifts for all of our loved ones.  I do admit that I am better now than I used to be when my kids were younger.  There are so many things to fit into the holidays....baking cookies, decorating the trees...and the house for that matter, going to all the parties and functions, shopping for gifts, wrapping gifts, writing out our cards and mailing them along with any packages for those loved ones that can't be with us this year.  Preparing the big meal, and if you are "lucky" like me, you get to be the one to do all the cooking, and everyone else comes to your house to enjoy the meal.... taking the kids to see the lights and sites in the evening, playing in the snow, building snowmen and sledding, going to the candle-light church service on Christmas Eve....oh my, and the list goes on.   You get the idea. 

For now, why not kick back for a few minutes, enjoy the Christmas songs that I have loaded onto my site for you, and hopefully get some inspiration to create some wonderful Christmas cards for your loved ones. 

Here is what I have come up with for this week's sketch.  I hope you will enjoy it. 

I was hoping for a combination of the pink and purple feathers, but I had no pink :(  Oh well. 

Let's see what you come up with for this week.  I will be around to have a look.
