TSG Flying By/Good Times Blog Hop!

Thursday, February 24, 2011

Hello and welcome to the final blog hop for the March releases for There She Goes!

We've got two sets to show you today that are going to ROCK YOUR SOCKS OFF! If you've found your way here from Natalie's fabulous blog, then you 're on the right track. But if you haven't and would love to hang out with us on this hop, then head on over to the TSG blog and start the wild ride there!

Iwona has done it again! She is bringing us some precious little girls that are ready to capture the joy of spring! Whether chasing balloons or butterflies, these little ones will help express your joy to the recipients of your cards.

Flying By is a 3X4 stamp set that includes a total of 5 stamps and will sell for $7.

Iwona is on a winner with this little girl! I love her simplified hands and feet because they're easy to color and she reminds me of a rag doll. I colored her in with my reinkers and aquapainter brush and then paper pieced her dress. Then I used this week's CPS #206 for the layout. I wasn't sure about the layout, but I think it draws your eye to the image...and that's never a bad thing! :)


************************************************


The other set being released this month is by the fabulously talented Torico! Time is precious to all of us, and Torico has illustrated a new set that showcases that fact! Her sweet and "time"less spring critters will not only have you using your time wisely, but they’ll also be bringing endless smiles to your faces.


Good Times is a 4x6 stamp set that includes a total of 11 stamps and will sell for $15.

This is a fabulous set by Torico!! I just love all the images in it! And instead of picking some expected colors and papers for this set, I stepped outside the box and made something a little edgier, a little more masculine. With the clock image from the set, as well as this month's SFYTT sketch and some papers from Cosmo Cricket's Circa 1939 collection, I put together this card. Each panel was distressed, sponged with Distress Ink and machine stitched. It's definitely not traditional, but I like it just the same.

Would you like a chance to win the Flying By and Good Times stamp set? Here’s what you need to do - go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Flying By/Good Times Blog Hop Challenge post. After you have finished checking out the eye candy and have left some love, return to the TSG Blog and add your name to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this Blog Hop Challenge post. A winner will be chosen randomly using a random number generator to receive their very own Flying By and Good Times stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday (Feb 26th) during the Release Party Chat.




Thanks so much for stopping by all this week! Your next stop is....
