Good morning friends!!! I am hijacking Natalie's post for just a second. We have some exciting news!!!! We have among us our very first TRENDIE! What's a Trendie? A Trendie is a Guest Designer. So, without further ado, I am tickled pink to welcome Christine Okken (otherwise known as ChristineChreations)!! Christine is an amazing artist who will surely bring her own flair to the team. Pop over to her blog and leave her a little welcome!
And now.... back to Natalie :)
It's my first challenge as a Trendsetter and I am so excited!!
About this time of year I start thinking about fun little ways to let family and friends
know I am thinking of them.
It could be as simple as a little bag of candy with a handmade tag,
or a handmade card...there is really no bad way to tell someone you care :)
So my challenge for you is to create something 'gifty'
it doesn't have to be elaborate
It can be a tag, gift bag, ornament, card...pretty much anything goes :)
What an easy challenge right!
Here are a couple of things I made to get you inspired!
A set of easy gift tags using the new Snowy Day's Set
Next up is a version of the 2,4,6,8 bag.
This little bag could hold treats, gift cards or diamond earings :)
or even a handmade card will work for this challenge!
To be eligible for the giveaway, make something 'gifty' 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 (11-08-10). 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 look out to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities.
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 TSG79 so we can check out your beautiful work!
