TSG and Little Pleating Challenge!

Happy Monday! Did your weekend just fly by or what??? Mine just did, but it was lots of fun, full of great weather, soccer, friends, and laughs! Love weekends like that. Plus, I wasn't dreading this Monday so much, since it is the kick-off to a fabulous week for me. LOTS going on, starting with this TSG post. It's my week in the Trendsetter's spotlight on the There She Goes blog! I love that Jessica does this for her DT members-I love learning more about my fellow crafters. Since it was my week, I got to pick the challenge over there. Since I've been loving pleating paper and ribbon lately, I decided to challenge you all to give it a try! I posted a quick tutorial last month, HERE and Heather just did one last week HERE on the TSG blog. So you have no excuses-PLUS you can win a prize!!!! Here's my card using the so cool, Chemistry set! I just got it and I LOVE it!
I'm also in love with this Kioshi papers by Basic Grey. I paired them up with kraft and avocado to give it a more masculine feel. I felt they kind of toned down the purples in the papers, making it perfect for me to give this card to my DH. Even though I may not always show it, with our crazy busy life-I am truly stir crazy for that man and don't' know what I would do without him!

To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a card that uses pleats (either with paper or ribbon), then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the Mr. Linky that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (April 19). The winner will receive a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!

By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. I will be on the look out to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)

You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG50 so we can check out your beautiful work!
Be sure to check back all week on the TSG blog-I've got more treats along the way this week. Oh, yeah and I'll have a H{ippity} Hop card later today, well, quite soon, actually. See you in a bit! Hugs, Lisa
