TESC is BACK!!!!!

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat? Yup, Yup, Yup.... it's true!!! The fabulous Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenges are back and better than ever. You can now get all the deets for the TE Sketch Challenge on Taylor's Blog and the new SCS TE Forum. The TE Sketch Challenge rules have pretty much stayed the same, but any changes I am sure you are going to love. How about a chance to win a prize for each TE Sketch Challenge, more time to play along and for this week only a chance to join the TESC Sketch Crew? Sounds fabulous, right? Well be sure to play along with us! We always love to see your wonderful creations! Today's card features the super cute TE set - Sweet Friends. I fell in love with the set at first sight. You all know I am a big Cuppie fan and this was just another fantastic set. I knew this sketch would be just perfect to add Cuppie and friends. I also really love the great sentiments that come with this set. I chose the "Something sweet to cheer you up!" sentiment and some cheery Fine and Dandy paper from MME. I colored the images with Copic Markers and added lots of sugar with Stardust Stickles.

You want to see more? Be sure to visit the rest of the crew and see all their wonderful creations and we also have a special guest - The new TE Top Chef - Amber Hight.

The Craft's Meow Grand Opening!!!!

Hello Friends! I am so excited to bring you some wonderful news and a new little friend. My dear friend, Lisa, is celebrating her grand opening today of her wonderful new store - The Craft's Meow! Woo Hoo! So let's get this celebration started!!! I am very proud to introduce you to the darling Little Frieda. Isn't she sweet? The Little Frieda image and sentiment below are part of the Little Frieda's Daisy set. I just loved coloring her and paper piecing her little dress. The paper piecing was so easy that I couldn't stop thinking about all the different ways I could dress her up. I am sure Little Frieda is going to be a star! There will be 3 Little Frieda stamp sets being release today. So be sure to hop on over to shop and check out all the cuteness!

Several friends of The Craft's Meow will be joining in on the celebration, so be sure to stop by The Craft's Meow Blog for all of the links. I can't wait to see all their fabulous creations.

Have a wonderful day and Thanks for visiting!

Happy St. Paddy's Day!!!

Happy St. Paddy's Day Friends! Thought I would pop in and wish you all a fun filled day with a little Leprechaun card. This adorable image, the shamrock and sentiment are all from the Irish Shorty set by Stampendous. I colored this cutie using Copic Markers and added some subtle gold shimmer to his beer and belt with a gold Spica pen. I stamped the shamrock background using Tea Leaves VeraMagic ink onto Bazzill cardstock. The kraft background was embossed using the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. I popped up his beer with some 3D foam tape and popped up the entire image onto the kraft cardstock. I hope you like today's card and I will be back this weekend with more Stampendous fun to share. Have a fabulous day and don't forget to wear green. You don't want to get pinched! LOL!

Thanks for visiting and May everyone believe your Irish today!
