Stella Stole my Heart...

Hey peeps!

You know what's better than making a card for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge?   Getting to make it while STAMPING with Mercy!  (and Pam and Jessie too, LOL!)   I admittedly did NOT get much done this weekend...I was too busy eating, laughing, spending money at Michael's and well, eating again, haha....

Today's MTSC is another AWESOME sketch and yet another that I FLIPPED :)  Here it is, MTSC57:


I used the sweet new STELLA Sprout from The Greeting Farm for this card using a bunch of brand new PRISM papers that I got from DieCuts R US!  There is also a FABULOUS challenge going on over at the DCRU DT blog, and I will be posting my card using THAT sketch challenge tomorrow because I'm not feelin' so hot and need to get some rest!


Oh, and did I TELL you that I am in LOVE with Be LOVED from My Mind's Eye?  Yeah, you'll be seeing a few more creations with that DP through Valentine's day...probably beyond , LOL!  I just adore it and the colors are so beautiful together!   Another fun new thing I got to use was this fab new Martha Stewart mega border punch.  LOVE it!  They were on sale for 30% off at Mike's so I had a blast shopping with the girls AND getting a bargain or two!

Well, be sure to check out the rest of Mercy's Muses and see what they've all been up to with this great sketch:


and our WONDERFUL Guest Muse....Vicki Burdick!

See you tomorrow for the Diedrich Dare!
