TSG Blog Hop Challenge

AFTC BHC
Hi everyone, hope your week is going well so far.
As you’ll see from the graphic at the top of the post I’m very excited to share that I’m now illustrating and designing cards during release weeks for the lovely Jessica at There She Goes Clear Stamps. I have two stamp sets being released for March at the release party on Saturday night and today is a sneak peek at the first of them which is my sweet pea mini set. Today is also the sneek peak for Jessica’s Chem 101 set, there’ll more sneak peaks through the week and another from me tomorrow.
If you’ve arrived here from the TSG blog then you’re in the right place on the blog hop and if you want to start from the beginning then popover to TSG blog for more information. By participating and leaving a comment on all DT members blogs in the hop you could win these stamp sets and be treated to some amazing cards from all the lovely and very talented Trendsetters, I hope you can join in.
From the TSG Blog:
One of the mini sets that we will be showing off today features a beautiful Sweet Pea image that was drawn by our new TSG Illustrator, Chris Dark! These gorgeous flowers are perfect for coloring no matter what your favorite medium is. The simple and elegant design along with fonts that look like they were handwritten, will help you to create beautiful projects that your friends and family will cherish!
Sweet Pea is a 3”x4” mini set that includes a total of 8 stamps and will sell for only $7!
Soon after the release of the popular set Chemistry, I started receiving emails from people saying that they would love to have a mini set of sentiments that can be used along with the set so that they could create cards that weren’t geared towards ‘love’. Well, in true TSG fashion, I have compiled a total of 10 different science/chemistry related sayings that will make you and your other scientific friends giggle!
Chem. 101 is a 3”x4” mini set that includes a total of 10 sentiment stamps and will sell for $7
Would you like a chance to win both of these fun mini sets? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Sweet Pea/Chem. 101 Blog Hop Challenge post. After you have finished checking out the eye candy and have left some love, return to the TSG Blog and add your name to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this Blog Hop Challenge post. A winner will be chosen randomly using a random number generator to receive both of the mini sets! The winner will be announced Saturday (Mar. 27) during the Release Party Chat.
