Taylored Expressions #76



This is my first time playing along with a Taylored Expressions Challenge. I have been checking out the weekly sketch for a while but have not played because I didn't have any cupcake stamps. Cupcake stamps are not required but cupcakes are kind of Taylor's thing. I like eating cupcakes (and any other sweets... just ask Alison... I ate 50 of her cookies tonight at our SU workshop) but I usually don't gravitate to food stamps. ANYWAY... :) I remembered that I have some chipboard cupcakes and this sketch was the perfect opportunity for me to use one.

I also think this card is perfect to post tonight/today because of the sentiment! I have the best blog readers EVER! You all are so sweet and I appreciate each and every one of you! I was in a funk last night and you guys sure know how to lift a girls spirits! Thank you all again for your sweet comments! U R sweet! I will try my best to stay out of those funks... they are not fun for anyone! I don't like being in them and am sure you don't like to read about it! Ha!

Well.... that is all... I am going to bed soon. Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!

Supplies:
Stamps - Polka Dot Basics (PTI)
Paper - Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze... the best color ever (both SU), Pure Poppy Bitty Box, Notebook Paper (The Paper Studio)
Ink - VersaMark, Chai Tea Dye (PTI)
Other - American Crafts Vinyl Thickers, Making Memories Tiny Alpha, American Crafts Red Zing Emboss Powder, Colorbok The Sweet Life Chipboard
