I can't help thinking this is how it ought to be...laughing on the park bench thinking to myself, hey isnt this easy...

Happy Tuesday, y'all! Did you have a great weekend? We did! I took the boys to the air show in Fort Worth to see the Blue Angels...so fun! Then we did a little trick or treating right before we crashed. WHEW! But I'm pretty sure you're not here to listen to me ramble about my weekend. I just happen to have have another Verve card for you today for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge for this week!

Here's this week's sketch:




And here's the card I created using Verve Stamps & October Afternoon papers:




Fun, huh? I love making Christmas/Holiday cards using non-traditional colors. The idea for pink & green came from the branch stamp...I thought it would be cool to fill in the circles, so I grabbed my Fruit Punch Stickles. Pretty! The striped paper is from the Be Good collection, which I don't see on their website...hmmm....wonder what's up with that? Then I added the polka dot pattern from Ducks in a Row. I love it!

Here's a closer look at some of the details:




Whatcha think? I hope you like it! And now it's time to visit Mercy's Blog to check out the eye candy she has for you. We're also welcoming a new Guest Muse this month...go say hi, k?
Have a fabulous day...I'll be back with some fun stuff in a little while!
