...Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #37 (MTSC37)

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! As you already know, each month I will be featuring a "Guest Muse who will be creating a sample for each of the sketches during his/her month. This month's lucky guest is none other than my friend and very computer savvy woman...Suzy Tyler, from "Inky Rubber".

Here are a few things you may want to know about Suzy from the lady herself:

"Wow! What an honor it is to be tapped to be the Guest Muse for September. I have been in love with Mercy’s sketches for a while now and cannot wait to see what everyone comes up with. I am relatively new to the stamping community. I fell head-over-heels in love with stamping the first time I put rubber to ink back in early 2007 at my first (and only) Stampin’ Up! workshop. For those of you who know me know that I don’t do anything half way. I jump in head first and keep going. After that first encounter with Stampin' Up!, I signed up to be a demonstrator and haven't looked back. I recently converted our spare bedroom into a stamp studio for all my stamping needs. When I’m not stamping, I work full time outside the home as the Administrative Manager for a local law enforcement agency here in North Texas and I also go to school part time. A friend recently asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I just laughed and said, “I want to be smart!” I have an Associate’s Degree in E-Commerce and I have a freelance Web Design/Development Company, but I’m working on that Bachelor’s Degree to go with it. My family consists of me and my husband, of almost 12 years, and my three fur babies; Pootie (canine), Baby (canine) and Pudge (feline)."
Now for this week's Tuesday Sketch #37:
My Sample :
Suzy Tyler's Sample:
I don't know about you, but these Muses have been inspiring me in ways I couldn't even imagine! To add to this talented lineup...we are welcoming a new Muse as well. Remember Shannan Teubner from last month? Well...she is stuck with us now, and she will be joining us every week as a permanent Muse...WHOOHOO! We love you, Shannan...welcome! Now let's go see what these lovely ladies 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 Mister Linky. Be sure to use the keyword MTSC37 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...I already have a list of future guests! I also have another surprise for you all...one lucky participant this week will win the Butterfly Wishes stamp set from The Greeting Farm ...designed by our very own, Jessica Diedrich. We will announce the random winner along with next Tuesday's Sketch Challenge.

Good Luck and Happy Stamping!
