Happy holidays 21

Hi! Hope you are having a great week! Today I'm joining along with the PTI October Release Create Along With Us challenge where we are challenged to select something that the DT team has created during the release that inspired us and create our own version.
I was inspired by this beautiful card created by Betsy Veldman:
Here's my interpretation:
I combined a couple different PTI stamp sets including the PTI Wreath For All Seasons along with The Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers. For the focal point, I stamped then heat embossed the twig wreath from the Wreath For All Seasons stamp set:
Since it was rather a clean and simple card to create, I created a set of 4:
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current RetroSketches sketch challenge:
Up next is an 8" x 10" painting that I painted for my sweet sister who loves hummingbirds:
This is my first attempt at painting both hummingbirds and hollyhocks. I'm up against the clock to get this painting in the mail to my sister because her birthday is October 25th and she is the dear sister who is battling terminal breast / brain cancer.

I'm linking this painting to the current Paint Party Friday site:
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Be Sweet ;)
