Hello my friends! I'm back from vacation and ready to jump back in to the crafty card making world with you. ☺ Vacay was wonderful except my husband was unable to go at the last minute. (insert HUGE sad face here!!!) Some times those higher ups just don't have a clue. Nuff said.
The weather in Tennessee was beautiful. We got to see bears, deer, and turkeys (live ones) and had lots of fun shopping. Linda B., that store was a dream. I'll have to take some pics of the loot I found in an awesome scrapbooking store in Sevierville. Yes, I did say pics cause I doubt I can fit it all in one photo. I even used a bit of it on this card. The birdies hat fluff is some Flower Soft.
Guess I better get to the deets about this card. We have a new challenge up at There She Goes Clear Stamps and it's a photo inspiration.
I've used some images from the "Penguin Pals" set to create a little scene. The tree is decorated with glittery pink baubles to match the photo and the little bird is decorating the tree with candy canes, which are also in the photo. The sentiment is part of the set and was cut with a banner die from the "Just For You" dies set. I used an awesome sketch from the Inspired By Stamping Challenge.
This week our challenge is brought to us by Candace! She is challenging us to make a card or project using the provided inspiration photo.
To be eligible for the giveaway, create a card or project with the inspiration photo, 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 (December 3rd). The winner will get a $5 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 TSG183 so we can check out your beautiful work!
I have over 200 of your posts waiting for me in my reader. I won't be able to comment on each and every one, but I promise to check them all out and try to get on track this week. ☺
