Blog Hop with TSG!

Hey all! We're having a BLOG HOP today with the team from There She Goes!.....my very first blog hop! To start at the beginning of the hop, click HERE to go to Jessica's blog. She's first in line and then you can follow the links to everyone's posts today.



We're all working with a different stamp set and all the cards are themed around Famous Quotes. I was assigned the Special Delivery set so I did some Google searching and found this quote by Josh Billings. I made the quote on the computer and printed it out on Taylored Expressions Buttercream CS...I know, after I finished the whole card I realized I should have put Josh Billings' name under the quote..oops. Sorry about that!

The mailbox and postage stamp are both up on Dimensionals. I added some red shimmerz paint to the red heart and flag on the mailbox. The yummy ribbon is from Jami Bova (thanks, Jami!!!).

Here's a picture of the inside of the card. The postage stamp here is also up on Dimensionals.



Soooooo, next in line is Holly McMillen! Head on over to her blog to continue the TSG Blog Hop. She'll then link you to the next TSG team member!
