...Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #33 (MTSC33)

Happy Tuesday, everyone! You know what that means...it's time for another Tuesday Sketch Challenge, but this week I have a very special treat for you all! Each month I will be featuring a "Guest Muse" who will be creating a sample for each of the sketches during his/her month, and this month's lucky guest is none other than my talented and funny friend...Shannon Teubner, from "Pink Tulle With Feathers and Sequins".

Here are a few things you may want to know about Shannan from the lady herself:
"Hi there! My name is Shannan, and I'm so honored to be Mercy's first Guest Muse! I started stamping in July 2006, when my girlfriend gave me a hand-stamped coaster as a gift. I thought, "Hey! What a great gift! I can make some!" My shoebox of supplies quickly spilled into the dining room, and it now fills my former office/piano room. I now refer to that gift as my "million dollar coaster." In addition to crafting, I am a HUGE music lover, especially musical theatre. I've been married to my husband, Josh, for 7 years. We met in 8th grade and have been best friends since, so we go waaaayyyy back! We live in North Texas with our 2 boys, ages 9 and 6, and our 4 (YES FOUR!) fur babies."
Now for this week's sketch...
My Sample...
Shannan's Sample...
I was simply stunned by the creations each and every one of my Muses created last week, so let's see what they have in store for us today:

Now it's your turn! Create a card or scrapbook layout using the sketch above, and link your creation below in Mr. Linky. Be sure to use the keyword MTSC33 when uploading to a public gallery. I will be checking out each submission, so don't be surprised if I contact you about being a guest designer for an entire month of Tuesdays!

Happy Stamping! :)

What a beautiful Christmas card Mercy! I love the colors, the poinsettia, and how you've turned the sketch. What an awesome idea to invite Shannan to be the Guest Muse! Her card is just adorable and I really love the way she's gathered the ribbon under the image. I've got to try that!
Now, I'm off to see what stamptacular cards the other gals created this week!... :)

Love that little girl on Shannon's sample.Will try not to be so late next time, slipping under the wire, I hope.

Kathie Bailey said...

I posted my link but I have to confess that it's not 100% true to the sketch. :-)

I loved the original, but my card refused to cooperate. They do have minds of their own,I swear!
