TSG Spring Fever Blog Hop!!

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Hello and welcome to the first of three blog hops for the April There She Goes releases!

This one is for the new 6"x8" Spring Fever set! If you've hopped here from Pam's fabulous blog, then you're on the right track, but if you haven't and would like to play along with us, just hop on back to the TSG blog and start your journey there. Remember, you could win this fabulous set just by hopping with us today!

There are so many stamps in this set to choose from (30 to be exact!), but I decided to go with the two squirrels in love because I used to have a huge picture window at my old work, and in the spring time, all I'd see out of that window...were squirrels getting frisky! LOL

I sponged the Labels Four nestie with Yellow Cadmium and Burnt Umber Chalk Inks, then stamped the squirrels and the sentiment with StazOn over the top. The heart was stamped with Real Red SU ink. I borrowed Taylor's TESC105 sketch from this week because it fit these little guys perfectly.

That's it from me and that's the end of the hop! Please head back to the TSG blog and leave your name in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of the post so you can be in the random drawing to win your very own Spring Fever set!

Thanks so much for playing along today!!
