Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #43

Ok. I think I'm officially three weeks behind on my Mercy sketches. How in the world did that happen?! I'm sure moving and being sick had something to do with it... but three weeks?!

It felt wonderful to sit and stamp again today. We are suspecting that I may have just survived the h1n1 virus (aka the swine flue), and spent the majority of the week in bed. The good news is that I am doing much better and am hopefully heading back to work tomorrow for the first time in a week! I do miss my kiddos, and it's so rough on them to not have me there.

I pulled out some more of my new paper from the scrapbook convention last weekend. This is the Wisteria line by Basic Grey. I was going to just pick up a few sheets, but this whole pack is gorgeous! I had to have it all! I kept my card rather soft, elegant, and dare I say shabby? Weird for me, I know, but I really like this card! More than anything, it's just good to get back into a card-making rhythm.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great rest of you Sunday!
