TSG Sneak Peak Day 2

I'm here with day two Sneak Peeks for There She Goes Stamps. Hopefully you just arrived from Jodi's blog!( Isn't she amazing?) If not,then start back at the beginning so you can follow along with all the amazing projects and posssibly even win a prize! There She Goes is proud to add another stamp set to the Stamps For A Cause collection! Kristy K. contacted me back in April with an idea for a stamp set about a cause that was close to her heart- Cancer Society's Relay for Life. I couldn’t help but get caught up in her enthusiasm and knew that this is something that I wanted to pursue. For each Winning The Race mini set sold, TSG will donate $4 to the American Cancer Society!
Winning The Race is a 3x4 stamp set that includes a total of 10 stamps and will sell for $7 (with $4 being donated to the American Cancer Society)
This set came to me with perfect timing. Wait, that sounds horrible, because, really, there is NO good timing about Cancer. A month ago, a close and dear friend was diagnosed with breast cancer. On July 1, at age 35, she underwent a double mastectomy and last Thursday she started Chemo! I'm still struggleing with this, trying to understand it all. We always joke how stamping is cheaper than therapy and I really felt the truth in that last week as I created this card. I was in tears as I created this and when it was finished I felt proud to be a part of such a wonderful cause. My friend, Jess IS winning the race against this horrible disease. Keep on fighting, girl!
I also decided to whip up a few thank-you notes. These are little 3x3 cards and they are the perfect way to say Thanks to anyone who donates to the cause. The second mini set that the Trendsetters are showing off is called Kindred Spirits. This beautiful mini set includes two different sized flower outlines as well as textured silhouette flower images that can be stamped underneath to add wonderful dimension to any project!
Kindred Spirits is a 3x4 stamp set that includes a total of 7 stamps and will sell for $7.
OMG! I have to say I loved working with this set. It is an amazing two-step set and the fact that these stamps are acrylic and you can see where you are stamping makes these flowers sooooo easy and FAST! They turn out beautiful everytime. Looks like I worked hard watercoloring them. How about the color combo? I love this too-espresso, marina mist, daffodil and tangerine tango. Ahhhhh! I really love these new SU colors.
Would you like a chance to win both of the mini sets Winning The Race and Kindred Spirits? Here’s what you need to do: go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Winning The Race / Kindred Spirits Blog Hop Challenge post. After you have finished checking out the eye candy and have left some love, return to the TSG Blog to 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 Winning The Race / Kindred Spirits stamp sets. The winner will be announced Saturday (July 31st) during the Release Party Chat.
Make sure to stop by the TSG Blog on Friday to see new TSG Tips & Tricks sheets featuring the brand new stamp sets! The Tip Sheets will also be available to download as .pdf files so that you can print them out to keep on hand for easy access during stamping :)

Mercy is up next! I can't wait to see what she created, it's always beautiful and never disappoints! See you tomorrow for more sneak peeks!
