Hey everyone, and Happy Monday....well, as happy as Monday can be, right?? LOL!! It is time for another There She Goes challenge, so let's get started!

This week our challenge is brought to us by our Senior Trendsetters. The week before release week there will be a TSG (Again!) week where we will be featuring cards/projects/tip sheets/etc. on the TSG Blog that use our fabulous older TSG stamp sets. This week the challenge is to create a card or project with the following recipe: A snowflake and a bird (it must have both images), and at least one kind of ribbon or a button.

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 this 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!

For my card tonight, I used one of this week's featured There She Goes Again sets, Penguin Love. I masked my trees, in two different sizes, and created my forest scene. I then colored them with my Copics. My Penguin was stamped separately, along with this hat, and then colored and cut out. I used my Circle Nestabilities to cut out my scene, and it's Pink Pirouette, Red Hot, and Jellybean Green layers. My paper is from the Be Merry collection from MME, and I used the Icicle Die-namics, along with some Sno Cone paper, to make my icicles. The ribbon I used is from the MFT Red Collection, and my twine is Maraschino. I used a PTI button, and some snowflakes cut from the Snowflakes Die-namics. To finish my card off, I added some brads from Michael's, and a spiral clip. I see now that the challenge says snowflake image, but I used an actual snowflake...I hope the Challenge Police don't come after me!!

Well, that is it for me for now! Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to head to the There She Goes blog to see what the other designers have come up with!! Have a great day!
