TSG Sneak Peeks, Day 1

Thanks so much for all your kind comments yesterday! I swear, my online friends are the best. DH just doesn't get it like you guys do, lol!

Today I am showing you a sneak peek from the new set called Blessings. It is beautiful! There are two separate challenges at the end of this post, so check them out!

I stamped the background with the Celtic knot, embossed the cross, and added some dew drops as a finishing touch. I had a horrible time trying to get a decent picture of this, the chocolate cardstock kept looking washed out. This is the best of about 15 attempts in all sorts of settings!

Challenge 1 - This month's TSG challenge is to BLING IT OUT! So bring out your rhinestones, glitter, sparkle pens, stickles and everything else that you can use to bling out your card. Use TSG stamps and you will be entered to win a free NEW RELEASE stamp set! You have until Saturday 12:00 AM Est. to get those challenge projects in! Please use the keyword TSG04 and enter your name and link to your card using Mr. Linky on this post on Jessica's blog.
Challenge 2 - Blog Hop Challenge- Want to win your own "Blessings" set? Just leave a comment on EACH of the Trendsetters blogs. When you are finished, go back to Jessica's blog and enter your name in the appropriate Mister Linky box. You have until 12:00 AM Saturday to get the Blog Hop Challenge comments in as well as the TSG challenge. Good luck!
Thanks for stopping by, see you tomorrow!
Supplies:
stamps - Blessings
paper - choc, avocado, kiwi, kraft
