...Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #46 (MTSC46)

Happy Tuesday, everyone! You know what that means...it's time for another Tuesday Sketch Challenge, and this week I have a couple of special treats for you! First off, I am pleased to announce that our sketch for this week is sponsored by Whimsie Doodles Stamps! We will be showcasing one of the new digital stamps from their new "Muffin Tops" line called "Muffin For Christmas". Special thanks to Melyssa for the sponsorship and digital images...we love these images, girl! Please stop by the store and show them some love!

And as you already know, each month I am be featuring a "Guest Muse" who will be creating a sample for each of the sketches during their designated month. This month's lucky guest is none other than my friend from across the big pond, Vivienne Holden of Crafting Haven!


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

"Hi everyone, I'm Viv. (Vivienne is for when I get told off)! I took up cardmaking about 5 years ago and millions of pounds later, am still as addicted as ever! LOL! I love stamping and colouring images with my Copics or Promarkers. I don't really have a style, unless you can call 'eclectic' a style. I'm so pleased and proud to be asked by Mercy to be her November Muse, and working alongside some wonderful old friends again (And now some new ones, too)."

Now for this Tuesday's Sketch #46:


My Sample (Outside & Inside) :


Viv Holden's Sample :

Now let's see what the other Muses have created for our viewing pleasure 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 MTSC46 when uploading to a public gallery! I also have a surprise for one lucky participant this week! A random winner will be receiving the "Muffin For Christmas" Digi Set from Whimsie Doodles Stamps for FREE! We will announce the winner along with next Tuesday's Sketch Challenge.

Good Luck & Happy Stamping!
