Hi everyone, if you arrived here from the TSG blog you're in the right place for the next stop on TSG Clear Stamps 'By the sea' Blog hop. If you'd like to start from the beginning there are more details on the TSG blog. I'm very happy to share the card I made with my new stamp set for TSG, I seem to have a bit of a theme going on this week colouring on kraft card with pencils :) but I think it's perfect for the beach scene.  Before I send you on to the next stop on the hop here are some details about the set and what you need to do to be in with a chance of winning it.

To quote and old song "oh, I do like to be beside the seaside...". This card is a work of art. I'd never have guessed it was a kraft base coloured with pencils if you hadn't said so. Really, you should frame it

OMG this is gorgeous. You really worked this stamp. I even thought it was a free hand pic, and was surprised to read it was a stamp. You did a bang up job. Sorry I'm commenting late, but I'm in hospital and on a wkd pass and am trying to go back and look at your work that I missed. Back to the hospital this week.
