Sometimes I can't hardly wait for that sweet, sweet someday...when I'll be swept away to another time and another place...

Happy Tuesday, y'all! I have a little surprise for you today...I am finally joining back in the fun of Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenges as a Muse! I have missed my girls! So excited to be back...thanks, Mercy, for having me!

Here's this week's sketch...what a great one!



And here's my take on it, using a stamp from one of Verve's new sets called Richly Blessed:



I had fun with this one! All of the papers except the card base are from Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding collection...still a favorite of all my winter papers. I have so many that haven't been used, so I'm trying not to purchase any new stuff this year. We'll see how that goes...*wink*

Anyway, I tried adding a bow, but the ribbon was just too wide...and I like how it ended up. I hope you like it, too!

Now go forth and check out the eye candy from Mercy & the other muses:

Have a fabulous day!
