Good morning again folks! It's Day Two of the There She Goes March release sneak peeks and we've got a humdinger of a set for you today!


Cowboys and western themes are all the rage right now, and we wanted IN on this super popular trend….and boy did Torico deliver!! Our new Giddy Up set is so fun, you’ll be roped in!



Giddy Up is a 6x8 set that includes a total of 26 stamps and will sell for $24.00.

Being from Australia, I was not familiar with some of the slang in the USA, but I managed to pick up a lot of them as the years went by. Then, in the summer of 2003 or 2004, I discovered a new one....Cowboy Up! From the most unlikeliest of places too - major league baseball! My favorite player on the Red Sox that year was Kevin Millar and he started a rally cry among the fans...to cowboy up! (For those of you who don't know it's meaning, it means to 'pony up', or 'buck up' or just plain ol' 'suck it up'! lol  I LOVED the saying and it has stayed with me ever since! So you know I HAD to use it on my sneak peek! lol

I used my trusty reinkers to color in this little cowboy and his pony and the layout is based on this week's Retro Sketches Challenge #51.

Would you like to win the new Giddy Up stamp set? Here is what you need to do:
 Visit the Trendsetter’s blogs that are participating in each of the blog hop challenges below and comment on their creations as you go. One of the Trendsetter’s blogs (from each hop day) will be randomly chosen as the ‘it’ blog and a winner will be picked using a random number generator from the comments left on that Trendsetter’s Blog Hop Challenge post.

You will not know which blog has been chosen so the more you comment on the better your chances are of winning new stamps! The Blog Hop Challenges will be open until 5 PM Eastern Time Saturday, February 23rd with the winner being announced during the release party chat.
