A Spiral (and VIRAL!) MTSC sketch...

Hey everyone!

Sorry about my late post today...I have had some bumps in the road this past 24 hours, most of which included having to bring my computer to Best Buy for a MAJOR virus removal.   I don't know what happened but I'm really sad :(  Thankfully I have a backup to use until I get it back, which I've been told will not be for a while.  I guess it's a pretty bad virus cleanup AND it's tax-free weekend in Tennesee so they have 500 laptops to put software on as they are anticipating a big sale.  Our tax is almost 10% here so when buying a big-ticket item like that, it's a good deal...ugh-makes for a long wait for me, though.

Well, that explains the craziness, but let's get right to Mercy's Tuesday Sketch this week:

I am SOOOO glad to be back from CHA and spending time with my kiddos and family.  I had such a blast w/ my friends but it's so hard to be away from them!  In celebration of being home and my heart bursting as school started on Monday for the three older ones and my baby goes this Friday...I used one of my FAVE QUOTES EVER from MFT for this card and it really speaks volumes about my experience with motherhood.  Gosh, I love them so much!!!

I didn't buy much at CHA Super Show, and thankful that I didn't now that I owe Best Buy an arm and a leg :(    One thing I did get though was a few new DieNamics Dies from MFT-LOVE THEM!   I made these Spiral felt flowers using them (and you should see what they do w/ paper, too!):

I really like the way this turned out!  I used the Clearly Sentimental about Babies set to stamp the sentiment and I hope you like it, too.  Be sure to check out the blogs of the Muses this week:
Last but not least, a WARM fuzzy welcome to Angela Thomas, our August Guest Muse!   We are thrilled to have her on board!  See you back here soon, everyone and thanks for bearing with me!  I'll be around to your blogs soon-catching up is always fun, huh?  LOL!!!
