Thanks! ~ Mercy's Tuesday Sketch

Happy Christmas Eve, my dear blog friends!! Today's card is in honour of all of you who have visited my blog...each day or once in a while or only once...you are all so wonderful :) Thanks for all the lovely, inspiring comments, always so kind and encouraging :) I love this retired SU stamp...it's so fun...this cute snowman giving his buddy the perfect gift ;) I love the smiles of delight on both of them. I love the panels Mercy's put on the sketch this week. I have a very large pile of Cosmo Cricket and Basicgrey dp on my desk and it was fun to pick through it and match up these 3 pieces. Whimsical stitching (what other kind do I do? LOL) was in order as was a bow and button (moved down from the sketch).

Okay, I'm really ready for Christmas!! The last of the stocking stuffers were picked up yesterday, the baking is packed and I was even able to play with my Slice to make a couple of tags for gifts. All I have to do today is make some appies for tonight and get ready for Christmas Eve mass. We will spending the evening with my family as well as tomorrow daytime. Then we'll have dinner with my husband's family. I wish you all a blessed Christmas. :D

Ink: Versafine onyx, SU soft sky, regal rose, summer sun

Another beauty - do you create anything but those?! Your bows really are perfection. One day, I'll have a beautiful bow/ribbon/button combo that you've got mastered.

Merry Christmas, Maureen! Have a fabulous time with your families!

Very sweet card! Love the whimsical stitching! It's perfect! This paper is so cute. I don't want to put it away... great idea to make thank you cards out of it! or a winter wishes card "just because"...

Merry Christmas, my dear friend! We'll talk soon!

I love the combination of dp you used! So fun! I love that little snowman stamp too. I never purchased it, but always loved it when my SU demonstrator buddy pulled it out for a card.

Have a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful Christmas Eve with your family!
