{MTSC81 & Curtain Call Act 37} Good Day!

Hello Friends!  Did you think I had deserted you?!  Well, I'm still here and HAPPY to find some time to stamp it up today and join along in two of my FAV challenges ~ Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge and Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge.

This card is dedicated to Stacey Schafer from Stacey's Stamping Stage because this is her BIRTHDAY WEEKHappy Happy Birthday 2 Stacey!  :)  She's the one that comes up with these yummy color combinations week after week for the Curtain Call Color Challenge.

As you can see, I've used one of the Pure Innocence stamp sets and Mercy's FAB sketch for the layout.

Check out all the BLOOMING cardmaking inspiration

 I want to encourage you to play along with the challenges this week!  For all the details and the challenges, please hop on over to Mercy & Stacey's blogs! 

If you're wondering where I've been, my family was here for the long 4th of July holiday weekend and just left early this morning.  We had THE BEST time together, but it is never long enough!  If there was a *pause* button we could push at certain times in our lives, I would have pushed it over and over this past weekend.  GOOD TIMES!!   We had family photos taken and I'll be sharing them with you as soon as I get them back from the photographer. 

Thanks SO much for blogging by and do come back again tomorrow, as I'll be participating in the Color Throwdown 100 Celebration!   There will be countless give-a-ways and tons of FUN!!  See you then!!
