…Mercy’s Tuesday Sketch Challenge #85 (MTSC85)

Hello, everyone!  This is the beginning of a new month, and it is time to welcome a new Guest Muse.  But before we get to that, I wanted to thank Peggy McCurry for being such a wonderfully talented addition to the Muses last month.  Week after week she produced gorgeous and inspiring creations.  Thanks for all of your hard work and your friendship, Peggy…we’ll miss you!

I would like to introduce you to our Guest Muse for August, Angela Thomas of Sparkle and Bling!

Let's get to know a little bit about Angela in her own words:

Hi there!!! Can I just say how excited I am to be Mercy’s Guest Muse this month??? I’m playing with some of the most amazing stampers out there!!! I’ve been stamping for about 4 years now after attending a Stampin’ Up party and then convincing my best friend, Kim Teasdale that we needed to make my wedding invitations. I never thought that my obsession with stamps, designer paper, ribbon and all things with “Sparkle and Bling” would turn into becoming a member of a couple design teams. I’ve met some of the most amazing people through cardmaking and love being able to share my creativity with others. I’m looking forward to spending this month creating alongside some of my stamping idols!!

Now for this week’s Tuesday Sketch Challenge #85:

Now let’s see what the Muses have in store for us today:

Now it's your turn! Create a card or scrapbook layout using the sketch above, and add your creation using the InLinkz linking system below.  Be sure to use the keyword MTSC85 when uploading to a public gallery.  Be sure that your link works before you leave the sketch post, and I will post “Mercy’s Magnificent Musings” on Sunday!

Happy Stamping!
