Taylored Expressions Birthday Bash!

Woo hoo, do we have a treat for YOU today!!! Taylored Expressions is celebrating its 2nd birthday, and you are cordially invited to join us for all the fun!!! The party starts at Taylor's blog... if you haven't already, you'll want to click over there and follow along so that you won't miss any of the excitement!

And today is a HUGE NEW RELEASE day at Taylored Expressions!!! Several new stamp sets debut, plus two Project Pantry Kits and lots of other goodies! I don't know about you, but I'll be in line filling my basket! You'll want to join me to take advantage of the following offers: 

--- Purchase ANY 4 full-size stamp sets and receive a free Binder Box
--- Purchase ANY 8 A la Carte stamps and receive a free set of Stamp Storage Panels
--- 4 orders will be selected at random (one each day from Friday - Monday) to win a $25 TE gift certificate!!! Good luck to the other three (besides me!) who will win that prize! LOL!!!!


My card features Fashionably Late, one of the new Belated Birthday ala Carte stamps. I love that there is a variety of fun stamps with a belated theme because that seems to be all that ever I am lately, despite my good intentions! You might as well laugh!

Fashionably Late includes the greeting in two parts... the first part you see on my card ("I didn't forget your birthday"). The second part is on the inside and reads, "I'm just fashionably late. Hope it was great!" So fun! And I love the expression "fashionably late." That's a given here in California... no one ever shows up at a party on the dot (except my in-laws, but that's another story ;).

Because of all the new release festivities, we're not having a Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge today. However, each member of the Sketch Crew has picked a past sketch to use for her card. Did you know you can download the first 100 sketches AND sketches 101 to 120 on Taylor's blog! Yep, just scroll down in the column on the right. Such a great resource! I chose Sketch 38.

Now on you go to the next stop on the hop, the talented and lovely Laura Fredrickson's blog. Enjoy!!
