MTSC35: Trying to Capture this Moment...

Hey everyone!

Happy, happy Tuesday to you all! I am in such a good mood this morning! I got AWESOME news yesterday about how well my DD is doing in school that I'm just on cloud nine! This move has been SUCH a blessing so far I can't even begin to explain, and it just keeps getting better!

Other than this wretched cold I'm fighting, our week is moving right along and I am thrilled to be bringing you another fun sketch by Mercy Kerin, for our Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge!


I LOVE this sketch, can I tell you!? I will most definitely be using it again and again. I used my Take Flight set by Gina K Designs which I LOOOVE and don't get to use as often as I should to create the background behind my sentiment, which is from my Butterfly Wishes set that's being sold by The Greeting Farm :)I bought a ton of this "Once Upon a Time " DP from DCWV on sale this past weekend...I LOVE it. It's so whimsical, elegant, almost vintage looking and has a ton of sparkle which I adore (I know, you're shocked right?)

My sweet friend Janna had given me these adorable Creative Options butterfly brads and I thought it would be perfect for this card. Hope you like it!

Don't forget to mosey along from here and visit the rest of the "Mercy's Muses" Design Team and also our FABULOUS Guest Designer this month, the incredible Shannan Teubner!

Our awesomely talented "Muses":
Now that you hopefully have a little inspiration, we'd LOVE for you to play along this week! Be sure to visit Mercy's blog to add your creation to Mr. Linky and if you upload to SCS, use keyword MTSC35.

Hope you enjoyed my post today and I'll be back soon! Have a great day, and tell someone you love that you appreciate them today! Unfortunately, I've had some events occur these past few days that are really letting me know who my friends are-just tough to deal with jealousy and the inability to be happy for people's successes, but at the end of the day, it only makes me more grateful for the real support system I have in my life! So whether you're a friend I talk to every day or just a fellow blogger who enjoys coming here and that I'm getting to know, please know that you are appreciated and I am super grateful!

Hugs,
Jessica :)

Love your card Jessica, and especially the butterfly embellishment on the flower. I really enjoy reading your blog, not just looking at the pretty pictures (which you have many of.) I hope you know your readers and your team really appreciate you.

Ooh la la! Jessica, this is just SO pretty. I'm glad I clicked to see a larger version because I would have missed all the extra detail...the subtle butterfly background behind the sentiment, all the paper piercing and that awesome butterfly in the flower. This is a beauty!

Hi Jess,

Cool sketch, and just love your card! The butterfuly brad is a really nice touch too.

I'm sorry to hear you're having some difficulties with friends. Maybe some time apart is the key? I'll pray for you on this.

Thanks for sharing!
