I have exciting news about MTSC #46!!!!

As if yesterday's news wasn't enough.....I'm now able to tell you, Mercy Kerin has asked me to be her November Muse!!!
To say I was delighted to accept would be the understatement of the year!!  It's a great pleasure to be working with Mercy and the other Muses again. They are an incredible group of enablers.
 (Mercy's sketch challenges are amongst the best on the net and not to be missed).

As Guest Muse, I'm kicking off this exciting month with Sketch MTSC46, sponsored by Whimsie Doodles.
The image I've used is from a new set of digi stamps called 'Muffin for Christmas'. You can see it HERE.
The digi images are SO cute!! (In fact, I like them so much, I've made two more which I'll post soon).  

So, here is Mercy's amazing sketch, MTSC46......

And here is my card...

Isn't that just the cutest Muffin!
My CS is Ivory linen with a band of plain dark green.
I coloured the tree with Copics. (Not a bad match that green)!
The ribbon is from my stash as are the little red gems.
The greeting, (which I think is hilarious), is part of the set, coloured on the PC to match.
I simulated the 3 dots on the sketch, with the holes off the Fiskars Threading Water border punch.
I used gold Glamour Dust on the star on top of the tree.

I hope you like my d├ębut card and recommend you go look at the amazing samples by the other fabulous Muses.......You will not be disappointed! They are the BEST!

Wish me luck and thanks for stopping by. You are always welcome.
