A+ Happy Birthday {MTSC99}




Hi there!!  It's Tuesday and it's time for another one of Mercy's sketches!!  Another great sketch this week, but I'll admit that my mojo has taken a vacation because I totally struggled with this card!!  I just couldn't make it work to my liking so I had to walk away.....hence the tardy post!  I finally sat down to finish it up and am still not 100% happy with it!   LOL

I needed another teacher birthday card so I pulled out my trusty Make The Grade and Extra Credit sets from Taylored Expressions.  I love the schoolhouse from this set.  It's fun to color and EASY to cut out!  I paired the stamps with some new October Afternoon Schoolhouse DP.  I could go on and on about how much I love October Afternoon, but I don't want to bore you!  These papers are awesome!  I only bought one pack and will definitely be picking up one or two more so I don't run out......

Anywho...I rounded all the corners with my Corner Chomper and layered the schoolhouse on a Nestability Lacey Circle.  Some stitching and buttons finish it off....

Don't forget to check out what the other girls did with this week's sketch!
