TSG Blog Hop

MOABH Participant Blinkie

Welcome to the There She Goes Mother of All Blog Hops! If you have arrived here from Melissa's blog, then you are in the right spot. If not, I recommend that you start back on the There She Goes blog to get the introduction to our hop as well as the information you will need in order to enter to win some exciting prizes!

I'm using Branching Out, one of my favorite sets. Mainly because I like the mix and match combos. :)


I made this earlier this afternoon because I plan ahead like that. My color combo was decided after finding a piece of paper on my desk that I had pulled out for another project (and then decided not to use). So I figure, why not? :)

The quotes in the set are all super fun so I picked one (stamped it on some scrap paper and then realized that the stamp was defective) and then switched to another quote. So glad I have a tendency to stamp anything on a scrap paper first...

The tree branches are stamped both on the base and then on the leaves again. The berries are simple a small circle stamp I have from another set but you could certainly draw berries as well or punch small circles or use buttons etc.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the rest of the hop!

Next up is the wonderful Jodi Collins -- who I'm sure has something wonderful up her sleeve!
