It is a Beautiful Day


Hello there everyone....hopefully it is another beautiful day in your neck of the world.  We've been through several days of gorgeous weather.  A nice surprise for the last few weeks of summer vacation.  

This week finds us at the There She Goes August Blog Hop Challenge!  We're going to show you some great new sets from TSG in the next 3 days!

Today is a sweet little set that celebrates a beautiful new day by Di Caruba...
First there were fairy tales and then fairies and now she has added a touch of country cottage to her fabulous build a scene stamp line! Use alone or along with the other stamp sets designed by Di to create wonderful handmade creations. 

Beautiful Day is a 4x6 set that includes a total of 10 stamps and will sell for $15. 



I love the idea of opening the shutters on a brand new beautiful day.  We all need a new start now and then don't we?   I tried to capture that with this little girl, the window parts, and the window box.  Coloring is done with Prismacolor Pencils and OMS, to match this pretty Valise paper from Memory Box, it incorporates lots of pretty yet soft color with Kraft.  I've popped up the shutters with extra foam dimensionals to really give it the 3D feeling. 


Would you like a chance to win the Beautiful Day stamp set? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Beautiful Day Blog Hop Challenge post. 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 this Blog Hop Challenge post. A winner will be chosen randomly using a random number generator to receive their very own Beautiful Day stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday Aug. 27th during the Release Party Chat. 

You should have come from the lovely Ann's Blog over here and now you can head to Corinna's place to see what she has in store.  If you get lost along the way you can head back to the TSG Blog for the complete list!
