TSG93 - 1,2,3 Challenge



Hi everyone! I just got back from my insane weekend with some of the Trendsetters (Jessica Knutsen, Angela Thomas, Corinna McGregor and Danielle Lounds) and I even got to meet the fabulous Sparkle Smith :) Let's just say that I survived the weekend with many new laugh lines! These girls totally rock and Corinna was a phenomenal hostess!

So um....I just had to let you all know how this card came about. Did you know that people from Washington State have some very interesting lawn ornaments? This one is modeled after the TSG Tastes Like Chicken set and you could say that it's in "a room with a view" *giggle*



 This is what greeted us as we drove into Corinna's driveway! :D That girl has one heck of a sense of humour :D Bless her heart! LOL 

Ahh, so in between our many giggle sessions I actually did manage to create a card or two and this one just happened to be a thank you to our incredible hostess card using the TSG93 1,2,3 Challenge. It required 3 designer papers, 2 buttons and one sparkly element. My designer papers were from Close to My Heart, the buttons are PTI and the sparkly element is the glitter on the rose.

So how would you all like to play along with us? To be eligible for the TSG giveaway, you are to create a card that utilizes the previous supplies, and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (Feb 14th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!
