FRIDAY!


You don't know how wonderful Friday's feel during the school year! I am SO thankful that we only go to school Monday through Thursday. I would go crazy if I had to go all five days! Haha!

Anyway, welcome to another Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge! Taylor has provided us with a fairly easy sketch this week and I was very grateful for that. I guess you can say I needed a break! :) For my card I pulled out the beautiful To the Nines dsp from Stampin' Up! (can you tell I've been on a Sage Shadow kick?) and paired it with my Upsy Daisie stamp set (which is still one of my all time favorites)! I added dazzling diamonds to the flowers and sponged Close to Cocoa over the edges. The circles were cut out with my nestabilities and popped up on dimensionals. I then stamped the sentiment, added dazzling diamonds to it, and stuck it on with a piece of hardware!

Well, that's it for today's card. My good friends Leanne and Hillary are coming over today sto stamp and we are then going to have a girls' night! :D I'm so excited! Make sure you stop by Taylor's blog to see her card as well as this week's featured sampler: Lori Craig! You should also check out this week's Our Friday Friend: Lisa Hjulberg over on the SASI blog because she is playing along with us this week too! I can't wait to see what you create with this week's sketch!

Want to see more? Sure you do! Make sure you check out the rest of the fabulous Cupcake Samplers! There aren't very many this week but they're sure to be great!
