Mercy-ful Heavens, another Cheeky?!

Um, have ya heard the news?  I AM OBSESSED with the new CHEEKY CHERRY line from The Greeting Farm!!! 

Before I begin, though, I just want to say THANK YOU for the outpouring of support and LOVE I felt on my blog yesterday and the WONDERFUL emails I got (like 4 of them-I was FLOORED!) about sharing that video with you guys.  I know this might sound corny, but as much as I TALK about the kids, life, etc., I don't always know that I feel comfortable blogging about that deeper realm of emotion, but you guys really seem to know what I'm talking about and really made me feel happy that I did it, so THANK YOU!  I loved that video so much that I'm going to post a permanent link on my sidebar so feel free to visit anytime ;)  And HUG those kids!  And each other, too :)

Ok, so....

CHECK out Mercy's Tuesday sketch this week, MTSC61:

Isn't it awesome?  I took a little "creative liberty" this week and changed the squares to hearts and a circle cuz hey, it's Valentine's week and we are ALL about the love, right?  I used the snazzy little Miss Cheeky Rockabilly by THE GREETING FARM for my card today and finally got to cut into my "Love me DO" DP from My Mind's Eye again-it's been too long since I got to work with these bright and cheery colors!

I'm tellin' ya, I'm really ashamed that I've become such a DP junkie.  It's embarrassing.  Seriously, I used to be soooo good about not getting too much and then I dont' know what HAPPENED?  I love EVERYTHING I see now (well, almost ;) and man, my little trip to CHA didn't help because I KNOW WHAT'S COMING!  ACKKKK!!!!!   Off to SCS to look for a paper support group, LOL!

But before I go, don't forget to stop by the MUSES...they rock!


and our WONDERFUL February GUEST MUSE, the SUPER talented Anya Schrier!

See you back here tomorrow for a VERY colorful Dare...don't miss it!  Hugs and love to y'all!
xoxo
Jess ;)

Lisa Hjulberg said...

define "junkie," 'cause if it means you have enough paper to cover the walls of oh, i dunno, the great wall of china, then that must mean I'm a junkie, too! lol
