A Sincere Thank You

Well friends, today's post will end my month as the Guest Muse on Mercy's blog. I feel truly blessed to have been given the opportunity to work with Mercy and her Design Team. What a fabulous bunch of talented, supportive ladies!

I had the group in mind when putting together my card for this week - ladies, I cannot thank you enough!

Here is this week's sketch - I *really* like this one!

And here is my card:

*happy sigh*

That fancy, beautifully intricate circle is part of the Faux Fun Circles set from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I stamped it in Versamark and embossed it in gold before cutting it out with a coordinating circle nestability. Isn't it perfect? The sentiment is from Say It With Style and was also embossed in gold. I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink and added some purple rhinestones. I have been in a purple mood recently.

The patterned paper is from the Guide Lines collection from Papertrey Ink. I pulled out the purples - Lavender Moon and Plum Pudding - for the rest of my card. Some curvy crazy stitching along the bottom and purple satin ribbon finish it off.

Thank you, Mercy, for a great time this month! I loved working with you. And thank you for your visit - I am always so glad to see you. Thank you also if you stopped in yesterday for the first Waltzingmouse Stamps Customer Blog Hop - it was a great time, you all did a *fantastic* job! Whew! I have a lot to be thankful for.

Have a great day, my dears!
