Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #65

What a fun sketch Mercy has this week!! I had to play along!!



supplies:
  • card size: 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
  • stamps: Izzie had a daisy,
  • paper: Basic Grey Euphoria (I've almost used up my whole 6x6 pad, yay!! first time I've ever used a whole paper pad!), SU cardstock,
  • ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU lavender lace,
  • others: copics, nestabilities, CTMH ribbon, stickles, CTMH pearls,
Don't forget to check out the Makeup 4 The Weekend challenge Friday and play along!

And for those who asked~~ yes, all those goodies were mine. I didn't win them. Buying stamping stuff is how I cope with Sam being gone...not the best way but it is what it is. You'll see my spending slow down drastically when I have my hubby home (and when we don't have the extra pay coming in that we get from him being gone) --I'm just thankful to have an understanding hubby!! (and yes, he is aware that I spend...hehehe)

Ohhh....did I tell you all we're getting a puppy?? Yup, a German Shepard puppy. Should have her in June!! We're so excited!!

Congrats on using up a whole pad of paper! And I'm serious about that:) I was just looking through my nearly-full pads of papers, thinking how much I like them, and wondering why I don't use them!

Awesome job Danni! Wow, you have alot of amazing things about to happen huh? New puppy, hubby coming home...how much better can it get? I hear ya on the spending. The way I see it, I don't really have any other expensive hobbies..I do read and love photography as well though :)

Teresa said...

Congrats on the puppy!!!

Hey, buying paper is much better than coping with booze, right?? And look at all the beauty you create! I wish I was more prolific with creating things instead of just collecting materials and feeling like nothing I make turns out nice. Everything ends up with a crooked slant, sigh.

Kimberly S said...

Adorable image, love her hair, and how exciting for you to have a new puppy on the way, lovely!

Debby said...

A puppy yay! Girl or boy? I buy stamping stuff too to cope with life. I don't know why but it makes me feel beautiful. All that pretty, glittery, shiny stuff. Who could resist?
