TSG MOABH - Happy Mail

 MOABH Reader Blinkie

Welcome to the 2nd annual Mother of All Blog Hops sponsored by There She Goes Clears Stamps!If you’ve arrived here from Lee Murphy's blog, then you are in the right spot!If not,you will want to start back on the There She Goes team blog in order to find out what you need to do to be eligible for the prizes we are offering!  (valued at approximately $400!!!)


For my card today, I've used the sets called "Special Delivery" and "My Little Friend".  I wanted to show the versatility of the TSG sets in that you have the ability to combine so many sets to make a fantastic card.   My inspiration came from the new MME paper "Lime Twist: Fly a Kite" line that I managed to snag at my local stamp store yesterday.  Perfecto, I tell ya!! I think it was fate.... The images were stamped (had to do a little masking as well) using Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I then watercolored the image using my Tombow Markers. The layout has been inspired by this month's Sketch for You to Try over at Jen del Muro's blog. (I say inspired because I changed the bottom circle to a rectangle to fit my sentiment and added a cloud to cover up a little boo-boo). 

Now hop on over to Judy Rozema's blog for more amazing eye candy!!!
