Sketch Selfie Share Challenge!!

Hello everyone!!  This has been a special week because it's Taylored Expressions 6th birthday!!!! I hope you got a chance to check out all the new September Taylored Expressions Release products.....lots of stamps, dies, and now Taylored Expressions has their own line of pattern papers, cardstock, embossing folders, and sequins...Woot!!!! You can check them all out in the new products section of the store. 

For the birthday celebration, Taylor is having a birthday sketch selfie share challenge...check out all the deets:

For your chance to win a $250 Gift Certificate to the Taylored Expressions Store, you must complete ALL of the following:

1. Create a card using the sketch pictured. While we love to see them used, TE products are not required for participation.
2. Take a photo of you holding your card (or have a friend take it for you.)
3. Add your photo to the TE Blog using the InLinkz link-up on this post. If you would prefer to email us your photo, send it to with the Subject: Triple S Challenge
4. Share some joy by giving or sending your card to someone! Leave a comment below telling us the name of the lucky recipient.

Complete all steps by 11:59 pm PST on Sunday, September 14, 2014. One winner will be chosen at random from all eligible entries. Limit one entry per person.

My card features the cute little toad from the And Many More stamp set.....the image was colored with Copics and the sentiment was created with the  Mini Caps Alpha and #'s dies with TE's Strawberry Milkshake and Jelly Donut card stock. 
The background Granny Smith card stock was embossed with the TE Zig Zag embossing folder and the patterned paper is from TE's Matched Double the Fun 6x6 paper pack.

 The flower was cut from one of the dies from the TE Bloom Where You're Planted die set and the scallop was created with the TE Medium Scalloped dies. The button, hemp cording, ribbon, and sewing finish it off. 

Here is my selfie....since I took this with my phone, I had to email it to my granddaughter, Mackenzie, and then she emailed it back to me so I could upload it. For some reason, I couldn't email it to myself. I really need to get out the book on my phone and figure out how to use it....maybe another day...LOL!!!

Thanks for stopping by....have a great day!!!
