This week, our challenge is the first of this month's Birthday Celebration challenges!! We will start the games tomorrow, so be here for all the fun!!
Our first challenge is to make a card using banners...but it has to have a birthday theme...it is our birthday celebration, right??
To be eligible for the giveaway, create a NEW card or project using the banner theme, 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 (September 9th). 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 lookout 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 TSG223 so we can check out your beautiful work!
I've used the adorable set from Melyssa Connelly, Scootin' By. I've coloured, paper-pieced, applied glossy effects, used loose glitter, added spica pen....you name it :D
The banner and arrow dies are by MFT. I thought the paper had the look of tire tracks! I also threw on some black brads for balance.
Have you ever rode a scooter? A girlfriend of mine used to come and picked me up (when I lived in the city, of course! I don't imagine Vespa's are much good on gravel roads! haha)...Anyway, it's THE. FUNNEST. THING. EVER. Hand to God, there is no way you can ride one without an ear-to-ear-grin on your mug the whole time. Talk about bugs in your teeth! We used to ride around (double) and look for real bikers.....as in Harley Davidson, just so we could do the biker wave at them!! And they always waved back, usually shaking their heads at the same time! lol!!! Probably thinking 'look at those idiot girls on the turquoise scooter, thinking they can run with the big dogs'.....Oh how I wish I had a picture to show you!!!! Us with our helmets and googles....
