2 AM and I'm still awake, writing a song...if I get it all down on paper, it's no longer inside of me, threatening the life it belongs to...

Hey peeps, happy Tuesday! I hope you all had an awesome start to your week. I'm fighting the crud, so this will be a short & sweet post. Of course, Tuesday's are Mercy's Sketch Challenge days. She went easy on us this week:



Yep, easy, huh? I actually made two cards for this one, but will show you the other one later. Here's my favorite:



Isn't she a doll? Her name is Ella Lollipop, and she's from Stamping Bella. I stamped her in Memento Black ink on Bella's Bestest Paper and colored her with Copic markers. I cut and embossed the image with my Rectangle Nestabilities, sponged the edges with Close to Cocoa, then added a scalloped Chocolate Chip mat. I cut a panel of Bo Bunny Ocean Dot paper, sponged the edges, then wrapped some Melissa Frances lace around the bottom. I adhered it to my Kraft card base, then popped the main image up on dimensionals.

Now it's time to head over to Mercy's Blog to see her card, and then don't forget to check out the creations from the rest of the girls:

  • Cindy Haffner

  • Pam Speidel

  • Pam Varnell

  • Julie Lacey

  • Crystal Birr

  • Jessica Diedrich

  • Vicki Burdick(January Guest Muse)


  • Have a wonderful day!
