TSG Blog Hop Challenge : My Little Friend

March 24, 2011

Hello everyone! Welcome to Day 3 of this month's TSG Blog Hop Challenges!!
Did you come here from Tobi's blog? I hope so. But if not, please start your hop from the TSG blog.

こんにちは!今月のTSG Blog Hop Challengeの3日目です!!
TobiさんのブログからこちらへいらっしゃったのならOKです。そうでないなら、TSG Blogから今日のブログホップを始めてくださいね。



The stamp set we are showing you today is called "My Little Friend". This set features garden gnomes.
When I received an e-mail from Jessica which requested to do a stamp set featuring garden gnomes, I didn't know the word, "gnome"...LOL! (As you know, I'm hopeless at English!) I had to google about "gnome" and found out that it means "KOBITO" in Japanese. What a wonderful theme! I really enjoyed drawing my garden gnomes!! :)

今日ご紹介しているのは、"My Little Friend"、ガーデンノームをテーマにしたセットです。Jessicaさんからガーデンノームをテーマにしたセットを作りたい、というメールをいただいた時、「gnome」ってなんじゃい??と思いました。そんな単語、知らな~い!しかも「g」は発音しないんかい?!(笑)
「gnome」でググってわかりました…あぁ、小人さんね(^^)。小人、と言っても地の妖精のことで、お庭に飾る置物があるんですねー。(自分の家の庭を荒れ放題にしている私には無縁でして。笑) いやいや、それにしてもかわいいテーマじゃないですか!これを描くのはとっても楽しかったですよ(^^)

Here is my sample card.


I receive a part of sales of my TSG stamp sets as commission every month. This month, I'll donate 50% of them to Japanese Red Cross for those who has been affected by Touhoku earthquake. So, I hope many many people love this set!!

毎月、TSGの私のスタンプセットの売り上げの一部をいただいていますが、今月分については、その半額を東北関東大地震で被災された方々のために、日本赤十字社を通じて寄付させていただきます。ですので、たくさんの方がこのセットを気に入ってくださると嬉しいです。

Would you like a chance to win the My Little Friend stamp set? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their My Little Friend 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 My Little Friend stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday (Mar 26th) during the Release Party Chat.

このセットをゲットするチャンスです! それぞれのTrendsetterの皆さんのブログを訪問して、今日のBlog Hop Challengeの記事にコメントを残してください。すべて訪問し終わったら、TSGブログに戻ってMr.Linkyにお名前を入力してください。当選者はランダムに選ばれ、Release Party Chatの中で発表されます。(その後、TSGブログ上でも発表されます。)

Here is the end of today's Blog Hop Challenge. Please head back to the TSG blog and add your name to the Mr. Linky!

  1. Love your whimsical kobitos Torico! I am so impressed with how perfectly you cut out all those little guys and colored them so beautifully. Thank you for creating so many wonderful sets for us to create with. I think it is incredibly kind for you to donate half of your commissions to relief efforts in Japan - I hope they all sell out so you can raise lots of money!!
