...Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #50 (MTSC50)

Happy Tuesday, everyone! It's sketch challenge time again, but I have a couple of announcements to make before we get started. First up, I have a new sponsor for this month's sketches!


Beth Schultz, from StampInsanity, contacted me a while ago to see about sponsoring the sketches for December...and I was so thrilled...especially when I saw her images! They are so fun and so easy to work with! I am a huge fan of high-quality red rubber stamps and/or acrylic stamps...and these deeply-etched red rubber stamps are WONDERFUL! Thanks for the sponsorship, Beth! Now be sure to stop by her store, and show her some love!

As you already know, each month a "Guest Muse" is featured, and they create samples for each sketch during their month. This month's lucky lady is none other than my sweet Yankee friend, Jessie Knight of Can You Say Addicted To Stamps? I had the privilege of meeting this sweet and goofy woman a couple of months back when we got together for a weekend of stamping, laughing, and eating. I fell in love with her spirit and personality immediately...it was as if we had known each other forever...kindred spirits.

Now it's time for you all to get to know a few things about her...in her own words:

"Hi everyone!! I am thrilled to be December's Guest Muse for my dear friend Mercy!! It is an honor to be a guest for her and to work along side all the AMAZINGLY talented Muses!! A little about me....I am a 31 yrs old and I live in Carmi, Illinois. I work as a manager for a local convenient store chain, as well as working part time for the USPS. I have been stamping since 2001, but didn't really get hooked until 2007 when I took a break from work and decided to check out the daily challenges on SCS....and the rest is history. Although I don't have as much time as I used to, I still love to stamp, and it is my way of staying sane!! Well, sort of....."

Now for this Tuesday's Sketch #50:

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 MTSC50 when uploading to a public gallery! I also have a surprise for one lucky participant this week! A random winner will receive the "Morgan's Star" stamp set from StampInsanity for FREE! We will announce the winner along with next Tuesday's Sketch Challenge.

Good Luck & Happy Stamping!
