I've Never Met a Cupcake [Challenge] I Didn't Like!


This is my second post for today. If you're looking for Kristine's Birthday Blog Hop, please scroll down.

Happy Friday my friends! Today is a very special day... Taylored Expressions is celebrating its 100th Sketch Challenge!!! Woo Hoo!!! And, what kind of celebration would it be without prizes? Yep, that's right...
Taylor is going to give away a $25 Taylored Expressions gift certificate to one random winner chosen from among all those who help us spread the word about the Sketch 100 Celebration by posting the badge on their blog. Pop over to Taylor's blog to grab the code!

Not only that, but Taylor is also going to give a $25 gift certificate to each of the Top 5 creations using Sketch 100 (judged by the Taylored Expression Sketch Crew). You may enter as many times as you want, but each creation must be linked separately in Mr. Linky on Taylor's blog.

So what are you waiting for? The sketch is fantastic!

Since Taylor started these sketch challenges as the Friday Cupcake Challenge, I thought it only right that I feature cupcakes in my card today, so I inked up the new Taylored Expressions Bakery Business stamp set. I'm in love love love with these images!!! I paired them with the new Material Girl DP by Cosmo Cricket (mini deck), which I'm also smitten with. Cosmo Cricket just gets better and better, don't you think?

Before you run off to start your card, be sure to check out what the rest of the Taylored Expressions Sketch Crew have created for your inspiration and pleasure... and help us welcome Lori Craig to the Sketch Crew! We also have a special guest on the Stamp a Sweet Impressions blog featuring the incredible Beate Johns as our Friday Friend, so be sure to stop there, too!
