I Heart U ~ Mercy Tuesday Sketch #58

Happy Monday friends!  I hope your week is off to a wonderful start.  This morning I got to enjoy a snuggle with my sleepy 2 year old and now I'm enjoying my morning with a nice cup of coffee so I'd say that I'm off to a great start.

This is what I came up with for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch using the Keys To My Heart set.  Sorry for the poor picture quality.  Not very many sunny days around here and no snow on the ground to reflect any light we do have. Yes, this card is very simple and could have maybe used some ribbon on the left hand side but I just didn't want to cover up the adorable argyle print that I carefully stamped (included in the stamp set).  My heart was pounding the whole time I was stamping that piece because it would only take one little misplaced step and then I would have to start all over again.  

I heart you
Paper:  Basic Black, Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Basic Grey, Real Red
Ink:  Real Red, Basic Black, Pixie Pink, Versa Mark, Going Grey
Accessories: Scallop trimmed boarder punch
Stamp:  Keys to my Heart (Practicing Creativity)

And here's another card that my daughter made.  She really likes seeing her cards on the internet so I've decided to occasionally post her cards as well.  I hope you don't mind.  She was thumbing through my Stamp It! Cards magazine and saw Dawn McVey's card "Thinking of You Butterfly" on page 22.  She wanted to make that one.  Of course I don't have all the materials so we had to improvise.  Here's what she came up with using my scraps and she made it for me this time!
