{MTSC #34} Please Pass the Salt!


YaY! It's time for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge and you're *all* invited to join in the FUN!

The designer of this terrific layout is none other than *thee* Mercy Kerin of Lord Have Mercy fame. If her sketch isn't inspiration enough, you really must blog on over to see what Mercy's Muses have created to get your creative juices flowing!

AND, along with this super line-up of card-making talent . . . each month Mercy will be featuring a "Guest Muse" who will be creating a sample too! This month's *special* guest is none other than mega-talented Shannan Teubner, from "Pink Tulle With Feathers and Sequins". I've always been a huge fan of Shannon's and it is such an honor to be working with her on Mercy's Challenges!

Remember, you are ALL invited to play along in these challenges. . . see Mercy's blog for all the details!

Thanks for stopping by today!
Smiles 2 U!
