TSG Sneak Peek #1


Happy Wednesday!!!

Hope you all been following Jessica's Blog and kept up with all the fun Challenges she has going on??? What do you all think of our new Design Team - we are the *Trendsetters* now - aren't they all awesome??? Have you seen I've moved up to the Senior DT - waahhhhoooo???

Today we are featuring the first Set of the new Release, it is called *Blessings*. I really like this Celtic Cross that Jessica has designed!!!

For this card I used the brand new *Manchester* DP. I thought it was perfect for the *Irish* theme. I combined it with the Kraft and Always Artichoke CS. The cross and the sentiment were stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa Ink. I raised the cross twice, first the whole cross and then I added a different centerpiece. Next I dressed it up with some Copper Brads.

For the inside I used a sentiment that is also included in this new Set. Again I added the Manchester DP and the Always Artichoke CS.

Now to the fun part.....are you ready to win this Set??? Stop by each and every Design Team Member and leave a comment!!! Jessica Knutsen would be the last card to comment on.
Add your name to Mr. Linky....that way you will qualify yourself to win this particular Set!!!

Hope to see you again tomorrow??? Start your blog hop right here at ...... Angela Jones, Bev Rousch, Denise Marzec, Stephanie Hargis, Wendy Weixler, Faith Hofrichter, Holly McMillen, Maki Jones, Becky Carafa, Christi Thorsen, Jessie Rone, Joanne Grzelak, Jodi Collins, Julie Lacey and Jessica Knutsen.

Have fun!!! ~TFL~
