For You

Hi all! Here's a card I made for Mercy's Sketch #85. Have you ever met Mercy?...my goodness what a riot she is!! I was lucky enough to meet her at CHA along with sweet Pam Varnell.



My stamps are from JustRite's Victorian Nested Frames, Borders & Centers. I stamped the sentiment and frame in black craft ink and heat embossed them with detail clear EP. The edges are sponged in So Saffron ink. The nested frame is up on foam tape.

Here's a picture of me with Mercy and Pam! This photo was taken by Sankari Wegman (thanks, Sankari!...you're a sweetheart!).....luckily she got a clear photo because mine came out all blurry...



Have a great day!
