TSG97 Appreciate Kraftiness...



Wowza... It's been a quiet few days on my blog here... I think my mojo up and took a hike when I decided to re-organize my living room, basement etc for the arrival of a new couch... Old couch gone... New couch... well, that's another story.. It's still at the store waiting to be delivered...

With my mojo lacking, I decided to make a CAS card for this weeks'  TSG Challenge by the Trendsetter of the week, Jodi.  She has issued a challenge to use KRAFT CARDSTOCK somewhere in your creation. You can use it as card base or as mats to your different layers, or as your focal panel, or you can create a masterpiece that showcases only Kraft…the choices are endless!

For my card, I've stamped the sentiment "I appreciate you" with Close to Cocoa from  the set "Sentimental Thank You" as the focal point. I've dry embossed part of the Kraft Panel with one of my Cuttlebug Embossing Folders (If I remember correctly, it's the Victoria one).  A little bit of ribbon, a button, twine, a few half back pearls and voila... done.... I also made this card for this week's "That's Krafty Thursday" at Jeanie Whitmer's blog.  Love her stuff!!!!


We'd love for you to participate by making a card that incorporates Kraft Cardstock, and then go 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 (Mar 14th). 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 TSG97 so we can check out your beautiful work!
