Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge #121

Hello everyone....we have had such a wild week around here!!! We have had Grandkids since last Saturday....1-4 at any given time...LOL!!! We have been swimming, to the movies, eating out, making home made pizzas (kinda messy but the kids had fun!!), and brutalizing the craft room!!!
I just have Autumn today and she is still in bed so Grandma got to play by herself...whoohoo!!!
I love Taylors sketch this week...I used Verve's new set called Blessings. The Irish Blessing was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa on vanilla cs and the flourish was stamped with Soft Sky. I used papers from October Afternoons Farm Fresh, added a little sewing along the side, and the pearls, flowers and ribbon leaves finish it off.

Recipe:
Stamps: Verve Blessings
Paper: Vanilla, Soft Sky, October Afternoon Farm Fresh
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Soft Sky
Accessories: Primas, Ribbon, Pearls, Nestabilities, Sewing Machine, Foam Tape



I just love Taylor's cuppies...this adorable set is called Downtown Diva. The images were all stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored with copics, cutout, and attached with foam tape. A white gel pen was used to highlight the cheeks and the button with the ribbon is the only embellishment.
Recipe:
Stamps: TE's Downtown Diva
Paper: White, Real Red, Cosmo Cricket dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories: Button, Gingham Ribbon, White Gel Pen



Thanks sooo much for visiting today...now I'm off to do a little blog hopping!!! I have missed all my cyber friends this week!!!
