Happy Monday Everyone!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!!! I know our family sure did! I am still trying to recuperate and am totally exhausted! After being gone all weekend and getting home in the wee hours of the morning from our trip, I am having a real difficult time accomplishing anything or getting back in the groove. There is always tomorrow, right?

I saw this awesome sketch from Mercy's sketch #53 and knew I just had to find the time to play along. I used the image Lili's Birthday Cake! Isn't is just the sweetest image? I colored her with my copics. The paper is from SEI Bisette. I just love the colors in these papers. The border at the bottom is made with a Martha Stewart Floral Vine Border. I added diamond stickles on the cake for some shimmer.

Here is the sketch:

Well, this is a short post since I am off to share some more family time with my girls and husband before Scott has to go back to work tomorrow. I will be back with a new Midnight Madness sketch in the a.m. Until then,.....have a great night!! Thanks as always for stopping by!!
