Ooooo....for me!

     Yesterday was the opening of a brand new challenge at There She Goes Clear Stamps blog.
     This week our challenge is brought to you by our Trendsetters! We are challenging YOU to make a card or project with a “presents/gift giving” theme. That can be tags, bags, cards, whatever you like!!
     I've created my card using images from the Wrapped In Joy set.  I combined several of the stamps plus one of the sentiments.  I found this sketch in the Mojo Monday archives and thought it looked like a box with a lid on it.  The top panel actually wraps around and is tucked behind the main panel to make it look like a lid.
     To be eligible for the giveaway, create a card or project using this week’s challenge 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 the challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (September 24th). The winner will get a $15 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store
     By participating in this challengeyou 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 TSG173 so we can check out your beautiful work!
     Here are a few challenges I'd like to enter this card into:

Kaboodle Doodles--babies and/or children
Make It Monday--anything goes
MarkerPOP--color something

     Hope you're having a great week so far.  :-)
