...Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #63 (MTSC63)

Happy Tuesday, everyone! It's the first challenge of the month, so that means we also have a new guest designer! But before I announce the lucky lady, I need to answer a question about my sample for last week. I have been asked by several people about the image that I used on last week's sample. I used the digital image from All That Scraps called "Baby Bunny Chick" designed by Amy Young for her Sweet November stamp line as part of C.C. Designs. It is also available in rubber. Go check them out...there are several to choose from.

On to our special guest! Hold on to your hats, because this guest is going to take you for a ride with her breezy and cheerful designs! I am so happy to introduce my friend and March's Guest Muse (and one of my favorite Canadians! LOL!)......DAWN EASTON!
Let's get to know a little about Dawn in her own words:

"Hello! I was so excited when Mercy asked me to be a guest Muse for the month of March! I remember when she asked me sometime ago and it seemed like forever away and then last week I realized, yikes it's almost March! LOL! I'm a 38 year wife and mother who recently just went back to work full time after a 10 year absence. It's been a little bit of an adjustment but I think I've finally found a balance between everything. Stamping is something I enjoy doing daily, if time allows. Thanks for inviting me, Mercy!"

Now for this week's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #63:
My Sample (and pic of Copics used):

Let's see what the other Muses have for us to drool over 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 MTSC63 when uploading to a public gallery!

Happy Stamping!
