Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #47


So...long time no post! I seriously can not believe how long it has been! I was so happy to finally be able to sit down and create something just for fun! I have been so bogged down with Christmas stuff these past two weeks that I was starting to go nuts! I will show you some of the things I have been working on over the next few days but I can't yet because I have a few faithful readers in my family (Hi Nancy and Jess!) who can't see them yet! Hehehe!

Anyway, I really love how this card turned out! Taylor provided such a great sketch for us this week! It was perfect for making a simple, yet elegant card (imho). I was so excited to get the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder a couple of weeks ago and today is the first I have used it! I just think it provides such a neat element to a card and I have loved seeing all of the cards made with it online! The stamped snowflake is from the retired SU! set The Snowflake Spot! I love this set and was so bummed that they retired it! The sentiment is from the SASI set Home Sweet Home. I love how you can use the SASI sentiments everywhere! It's amazing!

Before you leave, make sure to check Taylor's blog as well as this week's featured cupcake sampler, Karen Motz. You also won't want to miss the rest of the Cupcake Sampler's blogs!

Enjoy the rest of your afternoon! Nick and I are off to Iowa (AGAIN)! We will be there for the rest of the year so if my posts are still sporadic, that is why. I promise you that my posting will continue as usual after New Years so stick with me! :) Thanks for stopping by! I truley appreciate it!
