Mercy's Sketch Challenge #32: Life is Full...

...and I am bursting with excitement because it's my first Tuesday as one of "Mercy's Muses" for Mercy Kerin's Tuesday Sketch Challenge!

This is a very exciting day as my friend (and now practically my neighbor!) and sketch challenge artist extraordinaire Mercy is finally back to being able to do her OWN Tuesday sketches again so we are picking up right where she left off...I bring you MTSC32:Isn't this a fabulous sketch? I had a blast creating from it and knew exactly what set I wanted to use as soon as I saw it. I used one of my new EK Success border punches, the double scalloped punch to create a softer edge for this card and wanted to give it lots of texture by using two of my favorite CB embossing folders, some yummy PTI Double-Stitched ribbon and some pearl accents too.

I chose to use a sentiment from my Butterfly Wishes stamp set, a set that I designed available now at The Greeting Farm. Our lives have been full of change lately and I really thought this quote was appropriate!I hope you'll join in on playing the sketch this week! We are so excited about this and can't WAIT to see your take on the sketches that we will have to show you week after week! If you choose to play, make sure you link your creation to Mercy's blog and also use keyword MTSC32 when uploading to SCS or PCP or any other public gallery. And hey! You never know, Mercy may be asking YOU to be a Guest Designer for us so make sure you get your submissions in and have FUN!

Last but not least, check out the rest of the Tuesday Muses! Not only are they my friends, they are FABULOUS! They are:
Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful Tuesday, everyone!
