Amber made me do it!....but Girly, you ROCK!... (hee hee)

Hey, everyone!

It's time for another Mercy's Tuesday Sketch challenge and I have some fun pics I took from over the weekend, too.  We FINALLY seem to have gotten our computer issues under control...OH MY what a fiasco that was!

Well, I'm glad to be back and as always, Mercy has a fabulous sketch to share with us this week:

I used another Cheeky Cherry stamp from The Greeting Farm, Cheeky Rockabilly.  She is SO cute, isn't she???  Super fun to color, too!  Following the sketch and using the UBER cute "Be Loved" DP from My Mind's Eye, I whipped up this card:

Want to play along?   Just visit Mercy's blog and let Mr. Linky be your guide!    A SPECIAL thank you to ANYA Schrier for being our amazing February Guest Muse!  Was SO great to work with you, Anya!  And visit the rest of the Muses, too:


Well, that's it for me and my card, but I want to dedicate it to my friend Amber Hight who I was SO lucky to get to meet over this past weekend!  Amber and I design on the Unity DT together, but I have been following her blog for about 2 years now...Actually, her, Amy Sheffer, and our own Shannan Teubner's blogs were three of the first blogs I discovered when I stumbled upon Verve stamps one day...and here we are!   Awesome this little world of ours, isn't it?

Here we are at Michael's shopping like fools...FUN!!!!

And HERE is the LOOT that ended up following me home yesteday while out on our SUPER fun excursion:

Crazy, right?  All I have to say is...

 AMBER MADE ME DO IT!!!!  HA!   Check out her blog cuz she's got more of the same and a pic of HER loot, too!   She is the MASTA enabler, LOL!  We had SUCH a blast; she's a SUPER awesome gal and I hope to get to hang with her again before she heads back home to Okinawa-yikes!   Well, at least for a little while longer....so here's to you friend, girly, you ROCK!!!

Talk tomorrow!
xoxo
Jess :)
