TSG Toadally Awesome Blog Hop Challenge

Hi there!! It is time for Release Week at There She Goes, and that means we have some GREAT sneak peeks in store for you this week!! 


Well, the name pretty much says it all, but this new set from Melyssa really IS Toadally Awesome! From Halloween to Birthdays, with a princess AND a frog, along with several punny sayings, this set is so versatile and CUTE!! Use it for birthdays, Halloween, and whatever else you see fit!!


Toadally Awesome is a 4x4 set that includes a total of 8 stamps and will sell for $12.00.

I just LOVE Melyssa's little characters. They are always super cute! My card layout is Sweet Sunday Sketch #169. The patterned paper is some old Halloween paper I dug from way out of the back of my stash - BasicGrey Eerie. I embossed the orange cardstock with the Seeing Spots embossing folder and added a scalloped border to it. I stitched around my card edges with some white thread. I colored my  image with Copic markers. I usually color hair brown, but I dared to be different this time and went with blonde. I definitely need to work on my blonde skills! It didn't photograph well, but I used LOTS of Spica glitter pens on this image - on her hat, her dress, the frog, and even in her hair! She is extra sparkly. I accented my image panel with a Silver Chrome Viva Pearl Pen. I used some Black V-Striped Twill Ribbon and some Crystal Sparklets, both from the Ribbon Carousel, to finish my card off.


Would you like to win the new Toadally Awesome  stamp set? Here is what you need to do- visit the Trendsetter’s blogs that are participating in each of the blog hop challenges below and comment on their creations as you go. One of the Trendsetter’s blogs (from each hop day) will be randomly chosen as the ‘it’ blog and a winner will be picked using a random number generator from the comments left on that Trendsetter’s Blog Hop Challenge post. 

You will not know which blog has been chosen so the more you comment on the better your chances are of winning new stamps! The Blog Hop Challenges will be open until 5 PM Eastern Time Saturday, October 13th with the winner being announced during the release party chat.
