"Mercy" Me...LOTS going on this week!...

Hello again! 

Whew!  How about that CLUB ANYA blog hop last night?!  WOWZA!  Talk about a hoppin' hangover!  Not to mention the fact that I've been spending a lot of time here on my blog this week, and it's ONLY Tuesday!  You know what that means?   It's time for Mercy's TUESDAY sketch Challenge!..and it's a GOOD one (ok, are there ever NOT good ones?  No, but...you know what I mean ;)

Here is this week's MTSC52:


For my card today, I used the NEWLY released (and I mean NEW as in...TODAY!) Miss Anya LOVE set.  I {heart} this set like you wouldn't believe...in fact they just MIGHT be my fave Miss Anyas now and you guys KNOW I don't say that lightly!  You can check out Miss Anya LOVE along with the other Anya releases, available today at The Greeting Farm!  YAY!


I used some really fun DP from Imaginisce and the paper is SU-Riding Hood Red and Old Olive.   This deliciously BLINGY snowflake is from K&Co.  Isn't it FABBY????

I'm gonna keep this short today, but I do hope you'll stop by and visit Mercy's blog and the rest of her AWESOME Muses:
One more TEENY weeny thing....  ;)

I FINALLY took the plunge and opened my own SHOP.   I have been asked to do this by a few people and just didn't really have the time to sit down and plug everything in.  Before I started blogging and designing for stamp companies, I had my own website and it actually did pretty well, all things considered.   However, I want my Design work to remain the focus of my blog and stamping, so this is a happy medium, I'd say.

Anyway, I found an AWESOME site called SHOP HANDMADE that my friend Joni uses and I thought I'd give it a try!   I'll be adding as I go along but figured, why not, right?  So thanks for all your support and we'll see how it goes!  My Mom's friends will be happy, if anything ;)  Thanks for stopping by today, guys!  ENJOY this day!
