Let the Fun Begin!!

I am SUPER excited to write this post, why you ask? Because it is my first OFFICIAL peek as a Trendsetter!! There She Goes stamps is releasing 4 new sets on March 1st. Starting today, we will be previewing one set a day(two tomorrow actually, but you will fun!!) until Saturday. On Saturday, Jessica, the owner and FABULOUS designer, will be showing you the full sets and will have more info about when they will be released!! To win this set, you must post a comment on each of the Trendsetters blogs. When you are done, head on over to Jessica's blog and enter your name in the Mr. Linky box. Jessica will be picking and announcing the winners on the 28th as well as the winner of the Bling it On Challenge(just add some bling to any TSG card to enter, be sure to use the TSG04 keyword when uploading too)!! Entries for both must be in by midnight on Friday/Saturday night(technically Saturday, but you get my drift, right?)!! We will also be having a release party chat on Paper Craft Planet from 7pm to 9pmPST on Saturday night, hope to see you there!!
The set we are previewing today is called Blessings and is TOTALLY gorgeous!! I used one of my old favorite color combos, River Rock and Basic Black. When I want to go for a clean, elegant look, it is definitely my fall back!! I embossed the cross on River Rock CS with Black EP. I then cut it out and layered it on my Label One cut outs. I sponged the edges with my River Rock ink pad too. The DP is from the retired Ginger Blossom DSP and the wide Black ribbon came to me from my friend Jody. That is it for me now!! Be sure to leave a comment to be entered to win and don't forget to go to all the other girl's too!!

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!!

Cutie Pie Contest:

Paper Pretties is having a release on the March 1st so that means it is time for another CUTIE PIE CONTEST!!! All you have to do to enter is upload a card you have made using Paper Pretties stamps to the Cutie Pie Contest gallery over at the Paper Pretties website. Entries must be in by no later than 8pmCST on February 28th to be considered for the prize. Besides getting to call yourself a CutiePie, you will also receive all the new stamps that are released on the 1st!! Good luck!!

So, two weeks ago, my former friend Jodi(yep, I said former..anyone who loves me would NOT pose this challenge-TOTALLY KIDDING), challenged the Prettie Girl's to make a card using the Rule of One's. One layer, one image, one embellishment, one sentiment.......EGADDDDDSSSS!!! Now, before you get all freaked out, no, I still luv Jodi, I just am not a one kinda girl...I am more of a 10 or 15 kinda girl!! LOL!! So, anyway, after I was done whineing about it, I decided to use my Gliding By Sophia since she is such a large and GORGEOUS image. I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black on Gina K. 120lb white and then embossed a frame around her with my Rectangle Nestabilities and Cuttlebug. I colored her with Copics, added some stickles(which I am TOTALLY counting as a coloring tool) to her trail, and the tied a big silverbow at the top. I promise you, in real life the sentiment is NOT crooked, but for some reason every picture I took of this card LOOKS crooked...grrr. Well, that is it for me for now...have a great day!! Don't forget to go see what the other girls have created for this lovely challenge!!
