Good Moms Let You Lick The Beaters...

ha! I love this image and sentiment! Cracks me up!
It's time for Mercy's sketch and this week we are working on MTSC64. It's a good one! As always ;)
Here I have used a cute stamp set I picked up called Mix It Up and it's from a company called Darcie's. I stamped the image in Memento Black and coloured with Copics. After trimming the image I added a bit of Espresso Dimensional Pearls to the spatula and splatters.
Here is the inside....see...funny eh?
Stamps: Mix it Up; Cardstock: Regal Rose, Old Olive, White, Georgia Peach DSP; Inks: Memento Black; Accessories: Copics, Pearls, Scalloped Edge Punch, Espresso Dimensional Pearls, Dimensionals
I loved the sketch so much I made a second card with some designer paper that Brian bought me. It's not my usual style(if I had one) but I like the end result too.
Stamps: Upsy Daisy; Cardstock: Old Olive, Vanilla, My Mind's Eye DP; Inks: Old Olive; Accessories: Nesties, Pearls, Martha Border Punch, Stickles, Mat pack and Paper piercer, Dimensionals

Ha - that is a funny stamp set. And the mom on that card front looks like the classic mom from the 60s. I love the sparklies on the second card that match the patterned paper.

these are great. It may not be your "usual style", but I just love all the flowery, glittery goodness on that second card.

I love this "beater" card! I should get that stamp set---my sister's claim to family fame is that she shocked herself (this is as an adult, mind you) by licking the beaters while they were still attached to the mixer! She would think this is a hoot!
Your green & pink card is beautiful! How nice of him to get you some paper!
