Can I just say:
I am so excited to report that I have been selected as The Featured Cupcake Sampler of the week over at Taylored Expressions!! I know, I know... I can't believe it either :) Taylor liked my first TECC challenge card from a couple of weeks ago and asked me to create a little sumpin' sumpin' for her to post today! Thanks, Taylor... it was so much fun!
She sent me a couple of cute cuppies to play with, along with today's TECC71 sketch. I created two cards because the first one strayed WAY too far from the sketch :) If you look REALLY hard, you can see it underneath all of the schtuff, and rotated... I just kept layering the fun stuff! I have been coloring and Stickle-ing a lot lately, and this image was no exception!
Me likey :)
The "cupcakes make life sweet" one is much simpler, and you can totally see the sketch :) It looks much lighter and daintier...
Stamps: For the Love of Cupcakes (Taylored Expressions)
Paper: Lilly Anna SWIC & Cardstock, White UltraSmooth cs
Ink: Toile Pink Palette (edging)
Colorant: Prismacolors & mineral oil blending
Other: Crystal Stickles, Lemonade Blossoms & Buttons, White Scrapper's Floss, Heidi Swapp Floral, MM flowers, Cupcake & Limeade Paper Posies, dotted swiss fabric, misc. ribbon & rickrak, sewing machine, foam tape
I found the remnant of dotted swiss at Hobby Lobby... it reminds me of mama's sewing room when I was a little girl. Her room was stacked to ceiling with all kinds of wonderful fabric & doo-dads and I LOVED playing in there. I remember being a gypsy for Halloween countless times... it was easy to outfit that costume from her fabric stash and never look the same two years in a row!!
Whew... sorry... a little trip down memory lane :)
I hope you decide to play along with this week's Cupcake Challenge.
In fact, if you DO play along and upload to Taylor's blog, come back here and leave a comment with your blog address and I'll have a little drawing of my own for the two cards posted here today!
And check this out... both of these cards qualify for 365 Cards: Day 96 - Fun with Fabric challenge! Woo hoo! So, if you play along with the 365 Cards fabric challenge and leave me a comment with your blog address, you'll be entered in the drawing for these cards, too!
I'll draw a name next Wednesday night when my Stamp Club girls are over, so linky up by then!!
And once again, Taylor, thanks so much for asking me to be a part of Cupcake Friday!!!
What do you think?!
