Hope Your Birthday Rocks!

TGIF!!! I'm enjoying a four-day weekend thanks to mandated furlough and Cesar Chavez. Happy am I!

Today is an extra-special edition of the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge because... get this...a huge prize is involved!
Fridays are Sketch Challenge days at the Taylored Expressions Blog and we'd love to have you play along! Every so often we'll have a fun added BONUS to playing the weekly TESC... PRIZES! You never know what week Taylor might offer a prize so be sure to check her blog every Friday for the sketch. Prizes will be given to Taylor's Top Crops. Today is one of those days as Taylor is offering BONUS PRIZES for TESC106. You'll have through April 2nd to play along and enter your card for a chance to win your choice of FREE STAMP SET from the Taylored Expressions Store. Winners will be announced on April 5th. You do not have to use TE stamps to enter (but of course we love it when you do *wink*.) Get all the details to play on Taylor's blog.
This past Wednesday was my son Collin's 22nd birthday. I wanted to make a card for him, but it couldn't be too fru-fru. With my new Taylored Expressions Rock Star Key Ingredients Kit and You're My Hero stamp set, it was a breeze!

This is definitely a Clean and Simple card, which feels very strange to me... I keep thinking something is missing...but Collin liked it, so I guess that's what matters. Sometimes less is more.

You definitely want to play with us this week for a chance to win a free stamp set, right? For more inspiration, be sure to visit the rest of the Sketch Crew to see what they've created with this awesome sketch:

Sherrie Siemens: Card Creme
Melissa Sauls: In Stamping Mode
Rachel Sztonyk: Gingerbread Gallery

Lori Craig: Make a Difference
and of course Taylor herself: Taylored Expressions

I hope your day ROCKS!!!

I really, really like this Lisa. I love the bright colors, how you kept the layout clean and simple - let the stamps and paper do the talking. Super cute, girl! Have a great weekend!

Love the crazy mix of patterns - it works for a "rock'n" card! I have a giveaway for some Unity verse stamps on my blog if you want to check it out!
