Riding along in my automobile...my baby beside me at the wheel...

Hey, y'all, how are ya? I'm doing great...enjoying my clean(ish) craft room and ready to get back to creating! Of course, what better way to do that than to start with a sketch...could it be...Mercy's Tuesday Sketch?



Relatively easy one, right? Um...this one kicked my hiney! Of course, I had to make it hard and pick a big image and then squeeze it all into a 5 1/4" square card. But I do like how it ended up...check it out.



This cutie is Lovebeetle Huggabugg from Stamping Bella, and I colored her up with Copic markers on Bella's Bestest Paper. After digging through my (now sorted!) stash, I found this Basic Grey Urban Prairie paper that coordinated well with my image colors, so I layered it up, added a buttony-bow to the top, and piled on the Stickles. Just right! I really wanted to do some stitching, but I'll be honest, I was feeling rather lazy. So no stitching today. Maybe tomorrow.

There's lots more to look at if you want to check out Mercy's Blog, along with the rest of my girls:
Wanna play along with us? You know you do!!  Be sure to use Mr. Linky in Mercy's post, because she has a surprise for one lucky participant this week, so check it out. Have a fabulous day!
