(MTSC54} Follow your Heart ~

Y Follow your heart ~ it knows the way. Y

It's time to pack away my Christmas sets and move on to something new! Speaking of new, check out this spectacular NEW clear mount set from Stampin' Up!!! Did I say Clear Mount? Indeed, I did! Beginning January 5th, with Sale-a-Bration and the upcoming Occasions Mini Catalog, you will now have a choice between wood mount or clear-mount sets! Whichever one you choose, you will enjoy the same high-quality rubber and foam you've grown to *love*.

Today's card was created especially for Mercy Tuesday Sketch Challenge. I started with a 4-1/4 x 11" piece of real red cardstock, folded it in half and trimmed an inch off one end. The scalloped edge is a piece of very vanilla cardstock punched with the NEW Stampin' Up Pinking Hearts Border Punch. Do you like the paper and can you tell it's *sparkly*? It's the NEW Sending Love Specialty Designer Paper making its debut in the next SU mini catalog Jan 5th! The fancy heart brad is also something NEW to dress up your projects!!
Enough about my card, now, its time to hop on over and see what special treats Mercy's Muses have for you this week:

It's a BUSY time of year, but 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 MTSC54 when uploading to a public gallery. I can't wait to see how YOU interpret the sketch! :D

Quote for Today ~

We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love. ~Author Unknown
