TECC71 With a Sneak Peek!


Good morning everyone! How are you all doing on this lovely Friday? Have you missed me? I have certainly missed my creativity! It has been gone for quite some time. Actually, things have been crazy busy around here and I am finally starting to feel settled in again. Nick and I went to Steamboat Springs for a few days and we got back yesterday afternoon. We had such a fantastic time together but it was nice to come home and get stuff done! :D I officially have all of my laundry finished AND my gardens put together! Yippee!

Anyway, I have a fun card for you today using Taylor's Cupcake Sketch Challenge. This week's sketch is a fun one! It really has a lot of possibilities and what I love the most about it is that it allows for you to showcase some fabulous designer paper! Now since we all know that the new Stampin' Up! catalog is about to be released we also know that the old In Colors are going to disappear. :( Now as sad as that makes me, I know that I need to make room for the NEW In Colors so I am going to be using a lot of my In Color dp and embellishments up (that's your warning...hehe)!

Well, does anyone notice the fabulous image and sentiment on my card? If not, you might want to check your eyes! :D The cupcake and sentiment I used is actually from one of Taylor's new sets called "For the Love of Cupcakes" that she is releasing TODAY at her store! If you know Taylor then you obviously know that she is one of the most generous woman you will probably ever meet. She wanted to include the sketch samplers in this month's release by having us use one of the new images on our cards! Isn't that amazing? I was THRILLED to get to play with these images and I am sure you will be too! Make sure you stop by her blog to not only see this week's sketch but the new releases as well! She will knock your socks off for sure! You will also want to check out this week's featured sampler who is Barb Foster! She is truly talented!

Want to see more? Sure you do! Make sure you check out the rest of the fabulous Cupcake Samplers! They're sure to be great!
