MTSC24: Beary Fun Beach Day...

Hey everyone!

The internet has gone out on my twice tonight so I hope this autoposts...not sure if power is an issue somehow but I know that there are outages all over-in fact at 9pm tonight as I write this it is still 87 degrees here in Nashville! Hot, Hot, Hot!

What a perfect way to tie in the summer heat by showing you my card today for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge!

Before I get into the deets, I need to share a SUPER AWESOME announcement on Mercy's Guest Designer this month...can I TELL you how excited I am to be working with THE Shannan Teubner? Shannan has LONG been one of my "stamping idols" and she just so happens to be SUPER sweet and hilarious, too! We are so excited to have her, so please join me in a warm, fuzzy welcome! You rock, Shannan!

I'm pretty excited about today's card too because I finally got to play with one of the ADORABLE new images from Stampavie, designed by Helz Cuppleditch. Have you guys seen the BRAND NEW Helz Cuppleditch line? These amazingly cute little critters are available at the end of this month and you can check out all 10 designs HERE.This adorable little bear is actually holding some wrapping paper and wrapping up a box of chocolates, but this week's challenge on the Stampavie DT blog is to create a Summer/Beach card so I cut off the bottom of the image and well...turned the wrapping paper into a beach towel! It works, right?

Well, my craft room is ALMOST unpacked, as is about 90% of the rest of the house, I'd say. I've been working like mad and not sleeping enough but I just can't stand the disarray. Things are paying off though, as I really love our new home. And, I'm really excited to be getting back into a routine...all of which includes stamping, of course!

Be sure to check out the rest of the "Muses", Mercy's Tuesday sketch Design Team to see what their takes were on this awesome sketch! I am always honored to be working with:
Want to play along this week? We'd LOVE to have you! Just link your project on Mercy's blog and if you upload them to a public gallery, be sure to use keyword MTSC34. While you're over at my girl Mercy's blog, be sure to leave her some LOOOOOVE and a HUGE congrats! Mercy is the new GUEST DIVA for VERVE stamps! Can you say FABULOUS!?!? Congrats, my friend!

Have a wonderful Tuesday, everyone!

I love it when a stamp can be morphed to fit in with a challenge, that shows you are a real crafter. Love the colours.
