Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #17 May 23, 2008

Yes, I have taken on another Friday Challenge.   I COULDN’T RESIST…. making a sample card for Taylor at Taylored Expressions is such an honor:)  She has really fun sketches that I love.  You don’t have to use cupcakes for her challenges, so give it a try over this long stamping holiday weekend. 

I like the simplicity of the sketch today.  It took me about a 1/2 hour to make this card.  I had my heart set on using TCP Loving Mew stamp set for the longest time.  And after a visit to my NEW local scrapbooking store, Fancy That, to pick up some Cosmo Cricket papers (okay…all sorts and brands of papers *wink*), I knew I was using the set no matter what…lol  I first fell in love with the Cogsmo line of pp at the winter CHA show.  I thought of my son instantly.

Want to check out more samples for Taylors challenge?  Head on over to the sites of the following ladies to see more:

Ana Wohlfahrt, Jami Sibley, Lynn Mercurio, Monika Davis, Sherrie Siemens, Stephanie Hargis, and Vicki Chrisman.

Again, have a wonderful weekend.
