Spotlight on Mercy Kerin

I have been wanting to make a card using one of Mercy's sketches for quite some time and finally got to do it late last night! My son is diabetic and I had to stay up late so that I could check his blood glucose 2 hours after he had given himself some insulin (he uses an insulin pump). Since he went to bed a bit later than ususal, that meant I had to go to bed a bit later too.

The first time I saw this sketch, I thought it was neat how it makes it easy to use scraps of papers. It also came together so quickly!

You can see Mercy's sketch here. I am also including a link to her awesome blog on my blog list. Go check it out! She has a lot of fun sketches and ideas!
So, I got to play with a stamp set from Close to My Heart called You're a Hoot. It has 5 cute owls and a small branch along with a couple of sentiments (Woohoo and You're a Hoot)

Recipe: Stamps by Close to My Heart - You're a Hoot

Papers: Sahara Sand, So Saffron, Delicate Dots Designer Series (from SAB)

Ink: Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue,
Certainly Celery and So Saffron

Accessories: Ribbon by Bazzill, Gems by paper Studio, Piercing Tool and Mat Pack, Pop Dots, Pastels by SU!

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy Sunday!
