TSG150: Use Metal

Monday, April 2, 2012

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope you had a lovely weekend! I was flat out busy all weekend getting ready for my trip this week. By the time this post goes live, I'll be on a plane bound for Sacramento, California! It's a work trip, so it won't be that much fun, but at least it'll force me to slow down since I'll have nothing to do distract me in the evenings! I'll be there until Friday morning, so I plan on making the most of this down time.....resting (and commenting)! ;)

Before I packed my bags on Sunday, I made this card for this week's There She Goes challenge which is being issued by this week's Trendsetter, Candace Pierce! She wants us to use metal somewhere, somehow on your projects! Seriously Candace?! You really know how to issue a challenge! lol

I raided my embellishment drawer and sifted through all the flowers, pearls, chains(?!) until I found the one metal thing I have A LOT of.....eyelets!! I have more than any card maker needs, but I rarely use them! So out they came and this is what I came up with! Love that donkey!

To be eligible for the giveaway, create a card or project using this sketch, 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 this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (April 9th). 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 lookout 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 TSG150 so we can check out your beautiful work!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I have a whole week of scheduled posts lined up so I hope to see you back tomorrow! Take care.
