Wishing Every Birdie...

Good Morning!

Now that it has stopped snowing and raining around the New England area, we can get back to doing our Fall chores! We have a few 100 year old maple trees on our property, so you can imagine the amount of leaves they shed every year. It's a lot! This past weekend was all about raking them up, cutting back the wildflowers, mowing the lawn one last time and generally cleaning up before Winter hits. Every muscle in my body aches right now! Too much work in a short space of time. But it had to be done because who knows if we'll get a chance to tackle it again - this crazy New England weather has a mind of it's own these days!

One thing I did do over the weekend that was fun was make a card for this week's There She Goes Challenge #130. It's a recipe challenge this week and one that I think you'll like! Jessica is challenging you to create a card using a bird, a snowflake (it must have both images) and at least one kind of ribbon or button.

Not a hard recipe right? It's really easy if you have two sets particular sets from There She Goes! I used the cute little bird from Birdie Wishes and those almost transparent snowflakes were from the Stick Together mini set. I borrowed the layout from this month's Sketch For You To Try and the paper is from Memory Box.

I created the irridescent snowflakes using some Versamark Ink and some Crystal Snow Embossing Powder from Stampendous. Then I added some Crystal Twinkles to the center of the snowflakes to make them stand out a little.

To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a card using the recipe, 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 the challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (November 21st). 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 look out 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 TSG130 so we can check out your beautiful work!
