The random winner chosen from all those that have finished all FIVE of the challenges, and added their name to the Inlinkz, will be entered to win our grand prize drawing-a $75 gift card to the There She Goes store!!!!

Ready to get started???

Today’s challenge is brought to us by one of our NEW trendsetters, Stephanie Muzzulin!  She has challenged us to make a card or project for the man/boy in your life, with a birthday theme of COURSE!!

Remember to come back and add your creation to the Inklinkz for TSGBC02!! 

Here are the rules: For the daily challenge prizes of $15, you can use stamps from any company you chose, but we would LOVE to see you using your There She Goes stamps!! However, to be eligible to win the Grand Prize of $75, all you entries much use There She Goes stamps only! 

You will have until 8pmEST Friday, September 14th to finish this challenge, and the winner will be announced on Saturday, September 15th at 12am EST!! That gives you over a week to get finished!! If you happen to finish them all, and we hope that you do, you can add your name to the Inlinkz being posted on Saturday, September 8th to be entered to win the GRAND PRIZE!!!!

For my card, I used the newest stamp set, Swing Big.  He was colored with Copic markers, fussy cut and then popped up with Helmar Zap Dots for dimension.  Starting with a Bazzill Candy Bar cardstock base, I chose designer papers from Crate Paper (School Spirit).  I used a combination of corrugated and smooth cardstock to cut out the stars with Spellbinder dies.  The baseball was created by cutting out a simple circle with a MFT Circle Stax Die-namic and using my Copics to draw in stitching on the ball.

Copics Used:
Skin: E13, E21, E00, E50, R02
Helmet/Trim: E19, E15, E13, E11
Uniform/Shoes: E42, E41
Bat: E29, E35, E34, E31

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
