Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #45


Good Friday morning! Sorry for the lack of posts this week! I can't even begin to tell you how crazy busy we have been! To be honest, I have been so exhausted that I haven't even felt like stamping much. It was pretty hard to find time to sneak into my stamp room to make today's card but I did, and I really enjoyed myself! :)

This week Taylor has a really great sketch! I absolutely hated ovals until I got my nesties so now I am in heaven! They just make life so much easier! Anyway, I used this adorable caroling cupcake from the Home Sweet Home set from Stamp a Sweet Impression! I just think he/she is so adorable! I also combined some dp from the Christmas Key Ingredients Kit and some dp from Stampin' Up!'s Ski Slope pack. I was pretty amazed at how well they coordinated! For the image I stamped it in StazOn and then colored it in with my Crayola pencils and OMS. Easy peasy!

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Make sure you check out Taylor's sketch and her sample! You also won't want to miss this week's featured sampler: Cindy Lawrence! She is one talented stamper! I have been a long time admirer of her work!
