TSG Blog Hop Challenge : Pumpkins On The Vine

August 25, 2011

Welcome to Day 3 of this month's TSG Blog Hop Challenges. Have you come here from Tobi's beautiful blog? I hope so. But if not, please hop over to the TSG blog and start your hop from the beginning so that you won't miss a chance to win a stamp set we are showing to you today!




It’s almost time for the seasons to change and I illustrated some adorable little girls just in time for autumn! The images in this set were sized so that they can also be used with other stamp sets from my line for even more versatility. Isn't it awesome?:):)

Pumpkins On TheVine is a 4x6 set that includes a total of 15 stamps and will sell for $15.



For today, I used my most favorite image from this set (as usual. lol!). Isn't her 'pumpkin' hat cute? Hee hee. Let me tell you a short story about making this image.
When I was thinking about illustrations for an autumn themed set, a hat, which I sewed for my daughter several years ago, came to my mind.  I really loved it and my daughter (maybe she was 5yr or so) loved it too. Happily, I could find a few photos of the hat from an old album! (sorry for the photo quality.)



I thought that the top part of this hat looked like a pumpkin and it would be cute if I could make it into an illustration. So I decided to draw a girl wearing a 'pumpkin' hat.:)

Would you like a chance to win the Pumpkins On The Vine stamp set? Here’s what you need to do- go to each of the Trendsetter’s Blogs and leave a comment on their Pumpkins On The Vine 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 Pumpkins On The Vine stamp set. The winner will be announced Saturday Aug. 27th during the Release Party Chat.

Here is the end of today's hop. I hope you have enjoyed beautiful creations from Trendsetters. Now, hop back to the TSG blog to enter your name to the Mr. Linky!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
