Tech and Tulips :)

Now there's an out there title for you today!  Welcome to Day TWO of Sneak Peeks from There She Goes!



Whether you're one of those individuals who suffers from technological meltdowns, or you're one who has the world of technology all figured out;  you'll roll on the floor laughing when you get a look at this hilarious set illustrated by THE Jessica Knutsen :)  She's covered all her bases too, from cell phones, to PC's and she's included sentiments that will crack up anyone that receives a card illustrated with this set.


Now how many of us could relate to this hey????   What I love about this card is that I paired it with some Cosmo Cricket paper - The Boyfriend that has sheets of ScanTron images.  Remember the tests we took where you had to fill it in ABCD or E,  in dark pencil circles?  Our daughter still uses them at school for certain exams.  I thought it had that fun computer code sort of feel.  


If you click on this pic above you can see the little dp strip reads "please use a no 2 pencil"  hee hee!

Technology Bytes is a 4 x 8 stamps set that includes a total of 20 stamps and will sell for $18




And now come the Tulips .....

Spring is in the air, and nothing says spring like tulips!  This new set from Chris Dark showcases her flawless and realistic illustration of a single tulip and is paired with several sentiments that coordinate with the image.  This set is a must-have for any flower lover!


I've colored up this pretty tulip stem with copics to match this perfect designer paper from K & Co.  It's called Susan Winget - Spring Blossom.  The pinks and greens really say spring to me!  


I added some pretty gems from Prima and rhinestones from Zva to accent this beauty, and also sponged the main image so it would have that soft pink glow.  


I love how the sentiment fits together inside the card and out.  


Tulip is a 3 x 4 stamp set that includes a total of 8 stamps and will sell for $7.  


Now...would you like a chance to win the Technology Bytes AND Tulips sets?  Here's what you need to to - go to each of the Trendsetter's Blogs and leave a comment on their Tulips and Technology Bytes Challenge posts.   After you have finished checking out the eye candy and have left some love, return to the TSG Blog and add your name to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of the Blog Hop Challenge post.  A winner will be chosen randomly to receive their own Technology Bytes and Tulips sets.  

You should have come here from Tulips terrific designer Chris' blog   

and now you can head to the lovely Corinna and see what lovelies she has for you today!

Thanks for stopping by and have fun on the hop!
