TSG's MOTHER OF ALL BLOG HOPS!

Saturday, May 8, 2010

A happy Saturday to you all! And welcome to the FIRST EVER, MOTHER OF ALL BLOG HOPS, for There She Goes!

It was no small feat putting this hop together, so please, grab yourself a coffee, sit back and let your mouse do the walking and prepare to be inspired!

If you've stopped by my blog from the talented Trendsetter Danielle Lounds's blog, then you're on the right track, but if you haven't and would like to see a phenomenal amount of cards just about every set ever made by TSG, then head over to the There She Goes blog and start your journey there.

I have a lot of favorite sets, but the Spread Your Wings set just speaks volumes to me. The quotes are so inspirational and the butterflies are just beautifully drawn!

I've used this set before but I've never tried using all the butterflies from the set on an standard A2 sized card, but Trendsetter Mercy's Tuesday Sketch #72 this week just BEGGED for me to give it a go! As it turns out, you really can put all three butterflies on one card! :) I colored each butterfly with reinkers and an aquapainter brush and sprayed each of them with Glimmer Mist to make them SPARKLE!

Your next stop is Corinna McGregor's blog! Remember to leave a comment on everyone's blog because one lucky reader will win.....drum roll please....FREE STAMPS FOR THE NEXT SIX MONTHS!! Woohoooooooo! So keep hopping peeps!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by today! Have a fabulous weekend!
