...There She Goes By The Sea


If you've come here from LISA'S BLOG, then you're in the right place...if not, then you need to head over to the TSG Blog for the complete Blog Hop list.  This beautiful ocean/beach themed set was illustrated by talented Chris Dark. The ocean is one of my very favorite places to be. There is just something so amazingly calming about it that instantly puts me at peace. Jessica had the idea for a beach set for awhile, so when she met Chris she knew that her illustration style would be perfect for it! She sketched up a rough draft of her ideas and emailed them to Chris. When she received her illustrations a short time later she was absolutely blown away! The way she brought the set to life is just amazing. The detail in her images make you feel as if you are right there at the beach enjoying the calming waves and the salty sea air.

By The Sea is a 6x8 stamp set that includes a total of 37 stamps and will sell for $24.

Would you like a chance to win the "By The Sea" stamp set? Here’s what you need to do: go to each of the Trendsetters' Blogs and leave a comment on their By The Sea 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 "By The Sea" stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday (May 29th) during the June 2010 Release Party Chat at the There She Goes Forum.

That's it for me!  Thanks for stopping by, and your next stop on the hop is PAM'S BLOG!  I will see you back here tomorrow with another Verve Day Thursday AND another TSG Sneak Peek!  Until then...
