...Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #73 (MTSC73)

Happy Tuesday, and welcome to a VERY SPECIAL edition of the Tuesday Sketch Challenge!  I have been looking forward to this post all weekend!  As many of you know, Nashville was recently devastated by flood waters.  The affects of this natural disaster can be seen HERE on this YouTube video.  These images were captured by some of country music's biggest stars, and some were taken by the everyday citizens of the great city. 

Our fellow-Muse, Jessica Diedrich, lives just outside the downtown area that was hit head-on.  She has been doing her best to gather clothing and personal items from her neighborhood and volunteering some of her own time to help out in the relief effort, but she still doesn't feel as if she's doing "enough".  Needless to say, she was so thrilled when she received an email from her friends Jen Shults and Betty Roberts over the weekend asking if she could get "a few stampers" together to help promote a new digi stamp set in which 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the the Nashville Flood Relief Fund!  So I am proud to present:

The set is called "A Helping Hand" , designed by Jen Shults, owner/illustrator of Wildflower Patch Kids digital Stamps, and Betty Roberts of Simply Betty, a new stamp line debuting June 1st.  The set will retail for $15 and 100% of the proceeds are being donated to the Nashville area Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund.         This particular set went on sale yesterday at the Wildflower Patch Kids store.

I am so proud to be working in conjunction with some amazing stamping SUPERSTARS today to promote this new digi set with this week's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #73:

Now let's see what the other Muses have in store for you 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 MTSC73 when uploading to a public gallery.


Happy Stamping!
