SPCC #39 and Mercy Sketch

Good morning!! Sounds like today is going to be another BEEEYYOUTIFUL day here in central Alberta with temps around the +14C mark! Wowzers! Spring is definitely in the air lately....

This morning was another early start :o) DH left around 5:30 so I got up and got the good 'ol coffee pot crankin' and my mouse was clickin' looking for more challenges. And boy oh boy, did I find some!

Mercy over at Lord Have Mercy has a FANTASTIC sketch challenge up for ya this week:

The Divas over at Scrapmaster's Paradise came up with a very bright and interesting color challenge this week:

...and, without further adieu, here is my creation:

I really am scared to admit this openly on my blog, but ...... I am *really* starting to think that early, early mornings are MY TIME to create! LOL...I guess I need to set my alarm and get up early EVERY DAY hey?! I totally *heart* how this card just fell together so quickly!
Stamps: Vintage Vogue; Paper: Razzleberry, Summer Sun, Cameo Coral, Whisper White; Ink: Summer Sun, Razzleberry; Accessories: Perfect Dots embossing folder, nesties, sponge dauber, paper piercer, dimensionals, butterfly punch, pearls
I am off to start the washing machine, get some chocolate chip muffins started and then the kids will be ready to start school. Today is gym day for me - lookin' forward to it - haven't been there since last week :o( Bad me..and let me tell ya, doesn't take long to "feel the absence."
I will be back later on tonight - DH is gone for a few days down south on a job, so I am looking at the awesome color challenge that Megan over at Picture Perfect Creations has up for us this week:

Take care - have a super Tuesday and happy CREATING!!! Enjoy the sunshine my PEEPS!
