Lady Bird meets Mercy!!

Fabulous sketch this week from Mercy Kerin, and fabulous sentiment from Lady Bird Johnson that I purchased from Paper Makeup. I just love the sketch that Mercy gave this week. MTSC40. I just flipped it on its side to accommodate my sentiment. My papers are all Cosmo Cricket Something New and Something Old. Cardstock is Always Artichoke and So Saffron. Ribbon is So Saffron. Tiny twinkles were added as was the tiny crocheted flower. I also did some antiquing around all of the edges with my PTI Tea Dye and then I used my scissor to distress the edges a bit but you cant really see that in the picture. I think I was afraid to distress too much and ruin my work. I am a bit of a chicken when it comes to distressing. Hope you like this as much as I do.

So what are your plans for this gorgeous weekend? Me? Crafting!! I have some DT work to do and some fun challenges I want to play along with. The weather here is crisp so I will cook a hearty meal for my family again. I just love to cook in this kind of weather. Why is that??? It feels so homey to me!! Then on Monday I will fast on the Holiest Day in the Jewish Calendar...Yom Kippur....a day to repent for our sins....ME? SIN? Never!!!! Then we will be in Temple in the afternoon and break our fast with family in the evening.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a great one and I will be back again later or tomorrow with more goodies.

HUGS to you!!!
