See and believe


     Have you guys checked out the great sketch inspired by a card from my team mate, Kim O., we have this week at There She Goes?  I decided to use these cute little porkers for my interpretation.  They're from the "Oh Crop" set by Melyssa Connolly.
     I splurged a couple of weeks ago and loaded up on MFT Die-namics dies.  I LOVE the Fishtail Banner set!  I also used some trusty Nesties and some fun Memory Box clouds to compliment my flying piggies.
     We'd love to have you play along this week.  Here are the deets about the challenge.
To be eligible for the giveaway, create a card or project using the provided sketch, 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 29th). 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 TSG178 so we can check out your beautiful work!
