TSG102 Celebrate you Today



Hello there everyone! Who's ready for Spring?  I know I sure am!!! This weekend we had endless amounts of rain... I swear we're going to float away soon.  And it was one of those weekends where you plan to get a million things done and none of it happens.... So early this morning I decided to get a little crafty.  This week at There She Goes, Marisa (our Guest Trendie) came up with a challenge for us to use vellum on our cards.  Vellum scares me.... I'm not sure why but it does... so of course I had to go on a trip just to buy some.. Sad I know!!  Over the weekend, I noticed Iwona had her new Sketchbook Saturday up and the sketch totally spoke to me.  I instantly thought of these Prima flowers I had as well as the TSG set called Sentimental Birthday.  I've been trying to create some more shabby chic style cards because I've always loved the look but have a hard time achieving it.  So off for more inspiration I went... and I found two great challenges - Shabby Tea Room (this week's challenge is to use lace or doilies on a card so I used black lace) and the Cupcake's Creation Color Challenge (to use light pink, black and cream). 

We'd love for you to join us over at There She Goes for our challenge this week!! All you need to do is create a card using vellum in some way.  Then go to the TSG blog and add your link.  If using an online gallery make sure to use TSG102 as your key word.  Don't forget that by participating in the TSG challenge, you have the opportunity to win $5 to the TSG store or be in the Trendsetting Spotlight. 

Challenges I'm entering my card into:
Cupcake's Creation Color Challenge (light pink, black and cream)
The Shabby Tea Room (use lace or doily on a card)
Iwona's Sketchbook Saturday
Friday Mashup (butterflies with dimension) - new challenge blog!!

Have a great day!!!
