Flowers and Polka Dots Oh My!!
That being said, it has been a sloooow go getting the old mojo back up and running. Kind of like when you turn on the car and all you hear is whaaaaow, whaaaow, whaaaow and then silence. So, what better place to rev up the old mojo than a sketch challenge, and this week's There She Goes sketch is where I'm starting off this week.
I combined the sketch with last week's Color Q challenge (late again...). Some pretty bright colours, but I just love orange and blue together so gave it a whirl. With flowers never far from my mind, I used the There She Goes Polka Dot Blooms set. Needless to say, I was doing a happy dance when I first saw this set because I love flowers and polka dots and this set has them both :)
As an aside, TSG has a giveaway for this challenge. All you need to do is create a card that uses the sketch, and add it to the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG98. The challenge is open until the winner has been announced on Monday (Mar 21st). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store! TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :) By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday.
Thanks for your patience with my minimal posting the past six weeks :) I'm going to be stamping up a storm this week and hopefully getting my mojo back in full swing so I can post daily. That being said, the kids are off for a two week Spring Break as of next Monday (21st) so that may derail my best laid plans once again, but I'll do my best to post as often as I can over those two weeks.
Have a wonderful day (((hugs)))!
