There She Goes New Release Blog Hop-Day 3

Peacocks, and hippos and snakes, oh my! Judy Rozema was our lucky winner from this year's Mother of All Blog Hops and one of her prizes was the chance to work with TSG to design a stamp set in a theme of her choice. She said that she would like a fun zoo stamp set that incorporated some animals that are different than you might find in other stamp sets, and we knew just who the perfect illustrator would be for this! Melyssa's adorably whimsical zoo animals will have you going wild! Zoo-pendous is a 6x8 stamp set that will sell for $24.

For my card, I decided to use this adorable Penelope Peacock and fancy Flossie Ostrich (yes, I named all the characters! LOL) I thought they were perfect to go with the "shake your tail feathers" sentiment! The papers I used here are from the Jillibean Soup "Watermelon Gazpacho" 6x6 paper pad. I colored with Copics, of course then added some glitter to their tail feathers! And I kept looking at Flossie Ostrich thinking she looked kinda' said with her "bald" head, so I gave her a flower... it's the latest trend, after all!


Would you like a chance to win the Zoo-pendous stamp set? Here's what you need to do... go to each of the Trendsetter's Blogs and leave a comment on their Blog Hop Challenge post. After you have finished checking out all the eye candy and have left some love, head over to the TSG blog and add your name to the Mr. Linky at the bottom of the Blog Hop Challenge post. A winner will be chosen randomly to receive their very own set, and will be announced during the Release Party on Saturday, July 30th.

If you arrived on my blog from Melyssa's blog, then you're right on track and should continue on to Tobi's blog! If not, hop on back to the beginning at Angela's blog!

Good luck, and thanks for stopping by today!

Awww, the ostrich likes the peacock - feathery love! So cute! I love the little flower you added to the ostrich's head and the sparkle in her tail feathers, that she is about to 'shake' for him. That colorful floral background DP is really pretty too!
