Trendsetter Tuesday - Jessie Rone

WOW!!! What can you say about the fabulous Jessie Rone?  Jessie is our DT Co-ordinator and she does an amazing job keeping our merry band of misfits organized which is no easy task. LOL!!! I had the opportunity to meet Jessie back in February  at our TSG Crop we had at Jessica's house.  Meeting Jessie was one of the best parts of the trip!!!  Jessie truly has a heart of gold and I'm honored to be able to call her my friend. 

Jessie is our Trendsetter of the week here at TSG and I get to highlight a few of Jessie's cards.  Jessie has SO many amazing TSG cards, it was hard to choose just three. 

This card is just plain amazing with so many wonderful details. Jessie has used the new release set called "Beach Bum" (which just so happens to be one of my fave TSG sets).  I am loving the sun, the waves and check out the paper pieced bathing suit. Eeks!!! Fantastic!!! The color combo is amazing too!

Jessie is a master at putting great color combos together and this card is no exception.  It's so bright, fresh and fun!!!  For this card, Jessie has used the set called "Freeze the Moment" and see that little lollipop this cutie pie is holding, yup, Jessie drew that!!! The set doesn't have a lollipop so Jessie drew this one by hand, colored it up and there you go, a fun card that is sure to delight its' recipient.  Jessie is the queen of swirly clips and I love this fantastic addition to her card.

Okay... I'll sit here and wait until you pick up your jaw that just dropped to the floor when you saw this beauty!!! Can you say WOW???? This is freakin' fantastic!!!! This is my all time favorite card of Jessie's using "Oh Crop".  The attention to detail in this card is beyond mind blowing.  With the amazing scene in the background, the wooden fence and the flying pigs, what's not to love?  WOW!!! Jessie really hit it out of the ball park with this card. 

Well, that's it for me today and I'm glad I have the opportunity to highlight Jessie's cards for you today.  Jessie, we all love you!!! You are always our biggest cheerleader and TSG is lucky to have you!!  Thank you for being the person you are!!! 

Love ya girlie!!!
