YaY! It's time again for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge!
I thought I would surprise you by making a graduation card instead of a Christmas card this week. My nephew Jon graduated this past weekend from the California Art Institute in San Diego so I wanted to make him a "special" card. I sure wish I could have been there to celebrate the occasion, but they did send me a few photos and here is one of my favorites. This is my brother-in-law Ken, nephew Jon and my sister Judy. My sister said it was the BEST Christmas present ever! :)
Ok, back to the card details . . . I've used a retired Stampin' Up! set ~ GREAT GRADS, stamped and embossed in black. The basic grey cardstock 5-1/4" x 10-1/2" folded in half. The assortment of black and white designer papers are all from the Holiday Mini Catalog, page 11 - Night and Day.
Isn't this a terrific layout? I know, I say that about each one of Mercy's sketches! :) But, it's true! Now, be sure to blog on over and see what special treats Mercy's Muses have for you this week:
Mercy Kerin (Queen Muse)
Jessi Rone (December Guest Muse)
We know it's a BUSY week, but if you have the time, we would *love* to have you participate in the challenge. All you have to do is create a card or scrapbook layout using the sketch above, and link your creation to Mister Linky on Mercy's blog. Just be sure to use the keyword MTSC53 when uploading to a public gallery. I can't wait to see how YOU interpret the sketch! :D
My dear blog friends, I want to wish each and every one of you a very Merry Christmas! May your holidays be filled with happiness and peace and may the true meaning of Christmas bless your heart and home.
