Dream....and Some Challenges

I finally convinced myself that I HAD to stamp, so I did what I always do when I feel sort of blocked...I found a sketch!! This week's Mojo Monday sketch was super easy, and fun, and allowed for a small image panel, so that worked for me, since I have TORTURED my right hand at work this week(think bone bruising, burning, and carpal tunnels). I hadn't played in this week's There She Goes challenge, either, so I decided to play in that, too.

This week our challenge is brought to us by our Trendsetter of the week- Angela! She has challenged us to make a card for a lifetime milestone like a special birthday, a wedding, graduation, birth, etc.

To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a milestone card/project, 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 (June 13th). 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 TSG110 so we can check out your beautiful work!

I started by using the SUPER CUTE Polka Dot Pals set, designed by our AMAZING illustrator, Torico. I stamped it on an X-Press It Blending card. It was then colored with Copics, and layered with MFT Sno Cone, and Blue Raspberry, and SU Rich Razzleberry. My ribbons are both MFT(discontinued), and my brads are from Michael's. I used the MFT Simply Scallops Medium Die-namics to make my scallops. The paper I used is from the My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky collection.
Well, that is it for me for now!! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
