TSG88-Odd Couple

It’s our first challenge of the New Year at There She Goes, and since I am the hostess, I have a wonderful one to jump start your mojo! Pull out your sets, and combine those that wouldn’t normally “go” together to create a new and innovative card. Let your creative juices flow to combine two or more sets…your options are limitless.

To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a card that utilizes unconventional set combinations, 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 (Jan 10th). 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 TSG88 so we can check out your beautiful work!

My card today...CRACKS ME UP!! I have a pretty sick sense of humor, but my bf Ryan, he has be beat hands down!! For Christmas, he kept talking about how he couldn't' WAIT to see his card......YIKES!! I got so nervous, I could barely stamp. I wasn't sure what to do, or where to start....and then it came to me. heheheheheheheheeeee....I really hope I don't lose any followers or readers over this one, LOL!!


See how I put the "something" in quotations...subtle, huh? My card was made using two TSG sets, Tastes Like Chicken, and Wrapped in Joy. I inked up my toilet, and used a q tip to remove the ink on the flowers. I then stamped my present and cut it out. After adding it on, I used my Sharpie pen to fill in the toilet lines that it didn't cover. My DP is from SU, and I used Wild Cherry and Hot Fudge card stock. My ribbon is old SU, and I used Michael's ribbon and a spiral clip.

Well, that is it for me now!! I hope you like it as much as he did. LOL!! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!

Pure Innocence.....Sunday?

I know I told you a few days ago, but My Favorite Things has changed the way we do our what used to be Pure Innocence Monday, is now on Sunday. I hope I can adjust, LMBO!! This month, Kim, is releasing 5 new Pure Innocence sets, one of which I have featured here!! This cutie pie is my FAVORITE this month, but they are all ADORABLE as always!!

Today, there is a prize hidden on one of the designer's blog posts. As you make your way through the Teaser Time posts, simply leave a comment on each blog, for your chance to win one of two sets being given away today. A winner will be chosen from the comments on the pre-selected blog before tomorrow's teaser list goes live, and will be posted on Kim's blog HERE.

For my card tonight, I started by stamping my girl on an MFT Perfect Panel. She was then paper pieced with some Cosmo Cricket Early Bird DP, and then layered with Red Hot, Crushed Curry, and Berrylicious. The rest of her was colored with my Copics.

I used the new Dainty Doily and matching Dainty Lace Border Die-namics to accent my card. My ribbon is all from SU, spiral clips from Creative Express, and my brads are from Michael's.

For the inside, I used more of the same supplies!!
