Missing in Action and Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge

Hello and happy Tuesday. You may not have known but I have been missing in action since last Wednesday afternoon. We went camping for six days and were without cell phone and internet service. YIKES!!! I did have some posts automatically scheduled while I was gone but not for Friday, Saturday or Sunday. I hope you missed me as much as I missed being here and talking to you and reading your very kind comments. This camping trip of ours had been planned since the Spring so when I made the Club Anya Design Team it did not dawn on me at first that our trip would be on the same week as my first release with The Farm. Do you know how sad I was to not be there for the Release Party over on PCP? I was actually very upset because I was really looking forward to chatting with you guys. My precious husband even asked me if I wanted to cancel the camping trip. He really loves me!! But I couldn't do that as my son was really looking forward to his fishing time. On that note, I want you to know that I WILL NOT miss the next five releases while I am on this team. This is a dream come true for me and I don't want to miss a thing. Note: I want to thank my most bestest (southern slang inserted here LOL) friend Mercy for taking care of my blog last Thursday during the Blog Hop and picking the winner for the stamp set from the contest we had. Hugs Mercy. Love you girl!!!

Now, on to Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge MTSC44. Since I feel like I missed so much with Club Anya this past week (bless me, LOL) I made another card using the Xmas Sweeties set from The Greeting Farm. This is such an adorable couple, don't you think??? I paired it with some candy cane patterned paper from their Merry Merry Paper Pack. If you get this stamp set, and believe me you will love it, then you have to have that paper pack too. They go together like "peas and carrots", isn't that what Forrest says? LOL. Kidding aside, I love each and every piece of this paper to use with my Christmas cards. Look for more of it from me in the near future. Now, here is my card .......



I used the Dots embossing folder on the background panel behind Mr. and Mrs. Claus and then added some Liquid Pearls to the dots to make it look like snow. I used the snowflake and sentiment from the Keep Cozy set, I love pairing stamp sets up. The couple have Diamond Stickles on the fur of their coats for some added sparkle and of course if you saw my "Signature Style" from the Blog Hop you will see that I used "my Copics, my Nesties, a Border Punch, and Rhinestones. I LOVE bling!!! Now, here is a pic of the sketch ......



We hope you can play along with us this week. When you upload your card to a public gallery please use the keyword MTSC44. And don't forget to upload it to Mr. Linky on Mercy's blog too. Now go check out the other DT Member's blogs ....
