You did it!

Happy Tuesday everyone! A couple of things before I get to my card. 1. My grandmother is still very sick so if you would continue to pray or keep her in your thoughts I would appreciate it. It's very up and down right now and we're still now sure she's out of the woods. :(  2. I now have a way for you to subscribe to my blog right over here (<---------) on the left top side of the blog (see it? click it!). So now when I post, you can know about it. :)

Ok, so today's card is for Mercy's Tuesday challenge. Fun sketch..see it here:




Here is my take on it:



I just went wild with the patterned paper, eh? I just could not stop myself. It was a fun, but tiring, card to make. I wanted to make it seem as if there was wallpaper behind her so what I did was to stamp the image on white cardstock, then paper piece the rug and chair. Then I cut out the entire image and put it on the polka dot paper and then paper pieced the lamp and leaves so that they would not look "polka dot"-ish, kwim? I like the way it turned out,but I doubt I do that again anytime soon! haha

Well, that's it for me today. Don't forget to subscribe! ;)
