{MTSC83 & CC39} Enjoy the Journey!

One glance at Stacey Schafer's Curtain Call Color Challenge this week and I was IN!  After all, according to my dear Shackie friends, I am the "Queen of GREEN"!   I didn't realize how much green I used in my cardmaking until someone commented on it one day.  And then I looked at my ribbon stash and it was obvious that I had far more green than any other color.   Look at this delightful room that Stacey chose as the inspiration photo for this week's color challenge.   I could make myself right at home there! 

This is a 4-1/4" square card with kraft (crumb cake) cardstock as the base.  The fun layout is for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge ~ the inspiration of Mercy Kerin of Lord Have Mercy.  Isn't it great?!  I love the unique open circle as the backdrop to the image.   I can't wait to see how everyone else interpreted this~! 

The cute little turtle image is from It's the Thought ~ a Hostess set in the Summer Mini Catalog. (see link on sidebar)  There are 7 stamps in this set ~ all just as sweet as this one! 

It looks like Mercy's Muses are all at it again!

Happy Stamping & Smiles 2 U!

Quote for Today ~   (wouldn't this be a perfect sentiment for the inside of my card?)

Your little turtle is too cute! You must be the Queen of Green, because I have a hard time mixing different shades of green but you do it beautifully!
