Out of this world!



Welcome to day 1 of the There She Goes sneak peek blog hop. If you have arrived here form Miss Karen's blog then you are exactly where you should be, if not then please start back at the TSG blog :)

Today I get to show you one of the newest sets from one of our newer illustrators, the fabulous Melyssa Connelly. The set is called Out of This World and it's a 4x8 stamp set that includes a total of 19 stamps that will sell for $18.



This silly little guy has been water coloured with tombows, sponged and shaded with chalk. I added some fun little freckles and some stars in the sky with my stardust gelly roll pen but you can't really see it in the picture.

This card is a very special card for one of the sweetest little boys that I know. Today is my son's 7th birthday and it's certainly an occasion to take a trip down memory lane...




Awwww! *sigh* I miss those days! Happy 7th Birthday to my sweet little man Tait!!! And yes, I still want to pinch those cheeks :D

Would you like a chance to win the Out of This World stamp set? Here’s what you need to do...go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Out of This World 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 Out of This World stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday (Mar 26th) during the Release Party Chat.

Thanks for coming by today and don't forget that I have another two days of TSG sneak peekin' to do so come on back here tomorrow :D Now you are to continue your celestial journey to Melyssa's blog.
