...Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #41 (MTSC41)

Happy Tuesday, everyone! It's time for another sketch challenge...are you ready for it? This post will be a bit longer than normal, because I am previewing one of the new stamp sets from The Greeting Farm (TGF) that will be coming out on October 1st. I will show Suzy's sample first this week, then add the details concerning TGF below my sample. Please be sure to read all the way down, because I will be linking the TGF design team with my card...but the Muses will be linked further down.

Here's this week's Tuesday Sketch #41:

Suzy's Sample:

My Sample:This is my preview for the new stamp set, Keep Cozy, from The Greeting Farm. This set has three of the cutest snowmen you have ever seen, and several sentiments to boot! I watercolored one of the snowmen, then used the snowflake image from the set to create my very own coordinating patterned paper. I combined Kraft Cardstock, Rose Red Cardstock, Baja Breeze Cardstock, and some patterned paper from the Signature Christmas paper pad from My Mind's Eye. I added stitching, piercing, stickles, a felt snowflake, a button, and a bit of "punchiness" with a Martha Stewart border punch. Would you like to see more previews of this set, or even one of the other sets being released? If so, you'll want to run by the other design members' blogs and check them out:

Now I know the Muses are excited about sharing their sketch samples with you, so let's see what they have in store for you (be sure to click on Jessica's and Cindy's links above):

And 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 MTSC41 when uploading to a public gallery. I will be checking out and commenting on every submission, so don't be surprised if I contact you about being a guest designer for an entire month of Tuesdays!

Happy Stamping!!!
