Mercy's Sketch Challenge Cards

Good Morning....
Or is it? Ugh! I found out yesterday that I needed to go back and do three more days of that course I did last month. NOT fun....it's clear across the city and I don't have TIME to do it. Not cool...I was so bummed about it yesterday BUT I still managed to stamp. I think stamping put me in a better mood and I hope you like my cards today!
Both cards use Mercy's MTSC34 that you can find on her blog here.
I love this bowl of cherries image from Taylored Expression's new set called Berries & Cherries. I stamped it on Choice Snow White with Memento Black ink and coloured with Copics. Did you see that Taylored Expressions carries Copics now?! Super cool, eh?
Of course I had to add Glossy Accents on the cherries again :)
Stamps: Berries & Cherries; Cardstock: White, Prism, DP; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Glossy Accents, Ribbon, Dimensionals
Here is a second card using Mercy's sketch. This one follows the sketch ;) I pulled out Loads of Love from SU!...it's a set I'll never part with....it's great for men!
Stamps: Loads of Love; Cardstock: Not Quite Navy, Old Olive, WW and DSP; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Mat pack and Paper piercer, Glossy Accents, Old Olive ribbon, Jumbo Silver brads, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today!

I saw the truck card yesterday, but I didn't see the cherries card yet. LOVE the papers on both cards! You totally reminded me that I still have that flower DP...need to pull it out for sure. It looks GREAT with the cherry bowl! Great coloring too! :)

Sorry you have to go back to THAT DARN course. Thankfully stamping helps calm the nerves.
Love your cards. The colours in your berry card are so pretty.

You must be the patterned paper queen. You always find the very best papers. I love the coloring on your cherry bowl. And the truck with shiny window is too cute.
