Taylor's Cupcake Challenge and SCS Inspiration Challenge


Happy Saturday, everyone!!! I have been working on this card off and on all morning. I should have been washing clothes, taking a shower, dusting, cleaning the kitchen but ya know...I just didn't want to!! So that's how this card came to be, and in the words of the famous Mothermark...that's my story!!


I made this for Taylor's Cupcake challenge and the Inspiration Challenge on Splitcoast. The inspiration comes from the Pottery Barn Teen website and I chose this bedding for the colors.



This adorable owl from the Oliver and friends set
by Sassafras was stamped with Craft Regal Rose to match the paper. Her white areas were colored with copics as were the cupcakes from Taylor's Home Sweet Home set.




The branch was stamped with Close to Cocoa and colored with a copic. Extra branches were stamped with Certainly Celery, Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose, the leaves and flowers were cut out, and glued on to the branch. The clouds were stamped with Soft Sky and sponged with Cool Caribbean. The sentiment is from Taylor's Love is Sweet set and the paper is by Serendipity.


Thanks for visiting today and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

Hi Joan, I have tried to send you comments, but my computer just kicks me out.. And when I try to go to your blog, I can't get through.... Anyway, I'm going to try again.. I live between Lockhart and Bastrop on Highway 86.. Actually I'm 2 miles south of McMahan. I know we go through Temple when we go back to Oklahome, but not for sure how far it is.. I just love your blog, you do gorgeous work... I'm just a little envious of you, being retired and getting to stamp anytime you want. lol. Would love to keep in touch...
