Mercy's Tuesday Sketch #77

Good evening, everyone! I apologize, yet again, for the extended silence here on the blog. The only thing I can blame it on is life. And unfortunately, life takes a slightly larger priority over stamping. I know. So backwards and unfair. :)

Life over the last week and one half has consisted of having my sister in town, throwing her a bridal shower, cleaning, dishes and more dishes, having two colds in a row, a mild head bump (can I ever get hurt in a glorious manner?), report cards, end of the school year duties, and getting ready for a wedding. Craziness, in general. But all wonderful life things... Well, except the mild head injury, lol. Totally whacked my head getting into my car Friday morning. So silly.

So today, I finally sat down to stamp once again. Ah, how wonderful it was! I got a new stamp set about a week and a half ago and it was just begging to be inked up. I stamped "Happy Days" in the license plate frame since my happy summer days are just around the corner! Only 5 more days of school until summer break! I am so incredibly excited to sleep in more that two days in a row, have some more stamping time, read a few dozen books (The total for the last month was 5! Thank goodness I have book club on Monday!), and attend a few weddings. It's going to be wonderful.

I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch to get my stamping feet wet again after yet another break. I had Terracotta Tile stuck in my head, so out came my Autumn Abundance dp. I tattered and antiqued this card up a bit more than my normal, but I like the look of it. It kind of fits the old car, no?

I'm hoping to get to church tomorrow morning... We'll see if I can lick this latest virus before then. Otherwise, the only plans for the day are to finish report cards and put together my parent volunteer gifts. I've almost got everything ready to go for them.

Thanks for tolerating my long silences and coming back yet again. I'll be back soon with more!

  1. Your life sounds as busy as mine! Sorry to hear you got sick, twice!, and had to deal with a head bump - been there done that one myself LOL!

    You lucky girl you with only 5 days of school left! My kids have 12 more days - not counting weekends - and are pumped. I, on the other hand, am in deep denial LOL! Takes about a week or so to get used to having them home 24/7 but after that we have a great time together. I remind myself that they are only going to be home for about twelve more years so I need to pour all I can into their lives while I can. SO many things to prepare them for in life and most importantly, a firm foundation in Christ and His Word.

    Your summer sounds wonderful :D A great mix of things to do and I look forward to seeing more of your fabulous creations. Love the car and how you used Mercy's sketch! Get better soon (((hugs))).

  2. Beautiful card. Great design and your coloring is always so wonderful!

  3. LOVE the vintage look of this :) Happy Days for sure... 12 more here, but reports are done so it's just fun stuff until the end :) But these last weeks drag :) are the weddings at the beginning of the summer? Hmmmm, sleeping in....can't wait!!

  4. This is great!! Lots of fun patterns here!
