Day 1 of the There She Goes April release!

It's the first day of the There She Goes April peeks, and we have a fab line up for you!  We have four days of hops, ending with our release party on Facebook (Saturday, April 27th at 9pm Est), AND the release of the new stamps at 11pm EST after the party.  Be sure to hop along all week to get entered to win the giveaways from each day!

Today we are showcasing two new stamp sets by the talented Torico with a pirate theme!

 
 


 
Here is my Trendsetter make...
 
 
 You can't see it well from the photo, but I made a shaker card.  I knew I had to have a porthole somewhere on my card so I thought I'd use up some of those zillions of beads in the shaker that I have in my stash!  I used Shawna Clingerman Little Bubby papers and some metallic cardstock and silver brads for the porthole. 
 
Would you like to win the new Shiver Me Timbers/Ship Happens stamp set?  The more you hop and comment by visiting the Trendsetter's blogs below, the better your chances!  Check out all the deets here!  The Blog Hop Challenge will be open until 5pm EST on Saturday 17 April and the winner will be announced during the release party chat.
 

Thanks for visiting me today and I will see you later on my blog rounds!
