Mmmm mmmm pie!


     If you're like me, then every card is a learning process.  You figure out what works and what doesn't.  What looks better together and what doesn't, etc. etc.  This was definitely one of those cards.  There are still things I don't like about it and it's late getting posted today because I totally re-colored the image (still couldn't color her hair worth a plug nickel).  So here it is problems and all.  LOL  I've used some stamps from the "Poultry in Motion" set.
     We have a new challenge this week at There She Goes and it's a sketch challenge from our amazing Jessie.
     To be eligible for the giveaway, create a card or project using circles in any way you like, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (October 1st). The winner will get a $15 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!
     By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the lookout to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)
     You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG174 so we can check out your beautiful work!
     Have a great week!

Lynne Armstrong said...

Oh Tracy, there's absolutely nothing wrong with your hair colouring...or for that matter, any of your colouring! Your card is gorgeous but I do understand that process of not being happy with a creation...we all go through that at times. I think we're our own worst critic!! This is a fabulous card though :)
Hugs xx
