Mercy-ful heavens what a whirlwind few weeks!...

Hi everyone!

Miss me?  LOL, I guess it hasn't been THAT long since I posted but I feel like it has!  Ever since CHA and dealing w/ my computer woes I've just felt like a mess!

I'm back today with a card I started coloring while my friend-the incredible amazing Jen Shults was here visiting me this past weekend!   We had a BLAST!  I am utterly and totally exhausted after CHA, the 1st week of school, and our awesome visit but man was it FUN!  We even drove down to Knoxville one day to meet up w/ another stamping friend, Peggy McCurry!

Some of the highlights of our visit included making homemade Gino's Pizza with the kiddos, shopping at the Apple store :), comparing scrapbooking/stamping supplies and laughing at how different our tastes are (LOVE that!), singing in the car, and coloring together!   It really was fun :)

Anyway, today is Tuesday which means its time for another one of Mercy's brilliant sketches!   Here is MTSC86:

My card today uses one of Jen's Wildflower Kid images, Poppy Window.  Isn't she pretty?  I colored her up to match the My Mind's Eye paper I have been itching to open up!  I LOVE this "Bloom and Grow" line of paper and finally got my hands on some! Here is the card:

Be sure to check out the rest of Mercy's Muses today to see their take on this super fun (and versatile!) sketch:



Last but not least, here's a pic from our little visit:

See you all back here and PLEASE know that I totally plan to leave you all some love SOON.  it's been CRAZY catching up but I am looking forward to getting back on track here!  Hugs!
