...Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #68 (MTSC68)

Happy Tuesday, everyone! It's the first challenge of the month, so that means we also have a new guest designer!  I am so honored that April's Guest Muse has taken time out of her extremely busy schedule to grace us with her creations.  So without further ado...I am so happy to introduce my sweet friend and stamping mentor......DEBBIE OLSON!

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

"I live in the pristine Upper Peninsula of Michigan with my husband (who is incredibly tolerant of my many creative pursuits) and my fabulous ten-year-old son. My paper and ink obsession blossomed when I began my paper crafting blog Thinking Inking in September 2006.  I have been blessed since then to work for several paper crafting companies, and never lacked in an abundance of raw materials for creativity. I enjoy card making primarily, but also have fun with mini albums and altered art on occasion as well. When I'm not creating, blogging, or working on publication assignments, I'm home schooling; it makes for a full and interesting life!"

Now for this week's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #68:

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 MTSC68 when uploading to a public gallery!

Happy Stamping!
