TSG85 - Normal? What's that?

Welcome to this week's TSG85 challenge and it's to break out of the new goodies and get back into the oldies. That's right ladies, it's time to use your much hoarded stash - that is use anything that you own to make a card that you haven't picked up in 6 months or longer.

Not only did I manage to complete this week's TSG Challenge but I also got a chance to participate in the MOJO169 Sketch Challenge too :D

To make this challenge card happen, I pulled out some old sahara sand ribbon, twill tape, micro beads and my very first There She Goes set called Loads of Fun and let me tell you...this sentiment pretty much sums up my household ;) If you take a close look at the picture below, you will notice that I have made the washing machine into a little shaker image using some micro beads that haven't seen the light of day in quite some time. I kind of thought that they looked like suds and let's face it...who doesn't like an interactive card :D

So you want to play along too don't you? Well then - to be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a scene using stamps then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the Mr. Linky that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (December 20th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the look out to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)

You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG85 so we can check out your beautiful work!

Oh my goodness gracious. That's amazing. I love the "interactive" bubbles. Oh, and it fits my life, too. What, indeed, is normal?! Hope you can add it to the Catered Crop challenge - with the sewing, ect., it toally fits.

I have to add, "and mine is broken!" What can I say, Christmas, 2 college boys at home--I don't know which is larger, MT Dirty Clothes (inside) or MT Snow (outside!). . .I needed a good laugh! Thanks, great card!
