A Brighter Life



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




Know someone who takes everything too seriously? Or maybe you know someone who needs a little pick-me-up? This set illustrated by our fabulous Torico will “brighten” anyone’s day! There are not only a variety of lamp bases and shades, but there are also some heartfelt and humorous sentiments to coordinate perfectly with the images.

Lighten Up is a 4X6 stamp set that includes a total of 20 stamps and will sell for $15.

Would you like a chance to win the Lighten Up stamp set? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Lighten Up 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 Lighten Up stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday (Apr. 30th) during the Release Party Chat.

Thanks for coming by these parts and don't forget to swing on back here tomorrow for the last day of the sneak peeks :) Now have fun and hop on over to Miss Melyssa's Blog : D
