TSG Poppies Blog Hop Challenge

Poppies BHC
Hi everyone! Another great There She Goes Blog Hop Challenge today and if you arrived from the TSG Blog you’re in the right place, if not you can go back to the start and for more information on the TSG Blog. Today I’m very excited that Jessica is featuring my poppy set which will be released on Saturday. If you continue on the blog hop and comment on all the talented Trendsetters blogs you can win this set.
From the TSG Blog:
Be still my heart. I can’t even tell you how excited I am about showing you guys today’s sneak peek!! Almost since the very beginning of TSG, I have wanted to create a life like poppy set to add to the TSG stamp line. The wait is over my friends! Our wonderful new TSG Illustrator, Chris Dark has created some gorgeous poppy images that you are going to LOVE! This beautiful set also includes 3 butterflies of various sizes and sentiments that are great for everyday cards.
Poppies is a 4”x8” set that includes a total of 13 stamps and will sell for $18.
Would you like a chance to win the Poppies stamp set? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Poppies 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 their very own Poppies stamp set! The winner will be announced Saturday (Mar. 27) during the Release Party Chat.

Hi Chris~

What a wonderful card! Those poppies are so realistic, with a twinge of vintage style. I love the background around the flowers. The embossing adds so much to this card, and that bow sets it as Vintage! Those pewter decorative stickers are gorgeous, too! TSG is lucky to have you on board!
