MTSC Miracle...

Hey peeps!

LITTLE slow on the uptake this morning-sorry I'm late w/ my post for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge!  Wasn't feeling too well last night and had a baby doll boy who had a LITTLE too much fun swimming yesterday and had a very bad earache last night :(   Whew!  This weekend, although long, really FLEW!

Anyway, how are all of you?  It's time for another installment of my sweet friend Mercy's sketch challenge-here's MTSC90:

I used one of my FAVORITE {Ippity} sets, "Delightful Little Things".  It's a sentiment/quote set-I know you're shocked, LOL!

One of my closest friends has a friend who is going through a very hard time right now and I made this card to send to her.  I LOVE the sentiment:  "Be Realistic:  Plan for a Miracle".  That is so uplifting and positive, don't you think?  I just adore it.

I used some October Afternoon Thrift Shop paper and Distress ink in Antique Linen.   So, it occurs to me that I'm REALLY bad about writing about WHAT I use to make my cards.  I get so wrapped up in rambling and I know you guys like that, but would you like MORE info on my cards?  Should I go back to doing "recipes?"    Let me know-I can't wait to hear from you!

For now, be sure to visit my fellow Muses:


And a BIG fuzzy welcome to Lori Tecler, our September Guest Muse!

I'll see you all very soon-big HUGS to all of you out there!
