...Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #70 (MTSC70)

Happy Tuesday and heads-up, everyone!  This is going to be a longer-than-normal post, because I will be previewing a new There She Goes stamp set for this week's Sketch Challenge.  If you've come here from Lisa's Blog, then you're in the right place!  Let's get started!

This Tuesday's Sketch Challenge #70:
Debbie Olson's Sample:
My Sample (using "Daily Grind" stamp set from "There She Goes"):
Let's see what the Muses have in store for your viewing pleasure:
I don’t know about you all, but my life is filled with chores, errands, all sorts of other responsibilities.  Sometimes it’s nice to escape and enjoy some of life’s simple pleasures…like a good cup of coffee, your favorite sweet treat, or spending time with friends.  This first new set that the Trendsetters will be previewing is called Daily Grind, and it celebrates some of our favorite things we enjoy during life’s down-time.

Daily Grind is a 6”X8” stamp set that includes a total of 35 of stamps, and will sell for $24.

Would you like a chance to win the Daily Grind set? Here’s what you need to do: go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Daily Grind Blog Hop Challenge post. After you have finished checking out the eye candy and have left some love, return to the TSG Blog and add your name to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this Blog Hop Challenge post. A winner will be chosen randomly using a random number generator to receive their very own Daily Grind stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday (April 24) during the Release Party Chat.

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 MTSC69 when uploading to a public gallery, and your next stop on the blog hop is Pam's Blog!

Happy Stamping!
