TSGBC02-It’s His Birthday, Again?

     Here we go friends!  This marks my first posting as a new Trendsetter DT member for There She Goes Clear Stamps.  I'm so excited to share my card with you and to continue the excitement, this month is a very special time for Jessica Knutson's amazing stamp company.

September marks There She Goes’ FOURTH year in business, and to help us celebrate, we are having a month full of FUN!! Starting yesterday(September 3rd), and lasting through Friday, September 7th, we will be hosting one challenge per day. Each day will have a different birthday related theme, and will have a prize for the random winner chosen on Saturday, September 15th one $15 gift card per day!! Each day will have it’s own Inlinkz for you to link your creation to, and then on Friday, we will post an Inlinkz for ANYONE who has created a card for each challenge. The random winner chosen from all those that have finished all FIVE of the challenges, and added their name to the Inlinkz, will be entered to win our grand prize drawing-a $75 gift card to the There She Goes store!!!!

Ready to get started???

Today’s challenge is brought to us by one of our NEW trendsetters, Stephanie Muzzulin! She has challenged us to make a card or project for the man/boy in your life, with a birthday theme of COURSE!! 

Remember to come back and add your creation to the Inklinkz for TSGBC02!! 

Here are the rules: For the daily challenge prizes of $15, you can use stamps from any company you chose, but we would LOVE to see you using your There She Goes stamps!! However, to be eligible to win the Grand Prize of $75, all your entries much use There She Goes stamps only! 

You will have until Friday, September 14th to finish this challenge, and the winner will be announced on Saturday, September 15th at 12am EST!! That gives you over a week to get finished!! If you happen to finish them all, and we hope that you do, you can add your name to the Inlinkz being posted on Saturday, September 8th to be entered to win the GRAND PRIZE!!!!
