Some Exciting News!!!




Good Tuesday Morning Peeps!!! I have some exciting news to share with you. A while back I got an e-mail from Mercy Kerin asking if I would like to be her guest Muse in January. SHUT UP!!!! Me? LOL!! I was super excited and very honored! She is a fabulous paper artist and her Design Team are all top notch as well.


Here is the sketch we are working with this week:




My card is made with some new items from the SU Occasions mini catalog. I love this new Specialty Paper, Sending Love. My card base is real red followed by very vanilla and the Specialty paper. The main panel has letters cut from the "naturally serif" sizzlits strip die. The Hearts come from the "I (Heart) Hearts stamp set. I added some real red grosgrain and I used my MS lace heart edge punch.

Well, that is all for me today, be sure and check out the rest of the Muses' and see what they have created.
