I'm the Friday Friend!

I'm so excited to share this card with you today. On Monday Jami from Taylored Expressions contacted me by e-mail - she had seen this card in my SCS gallery and liked it. She asked me if I'd be interested in being the 'Our Friday Friend' on the Taylor's Stamp a Sweet Impression Blog this week.

Well - didn't have to think long about that question!!! I said YES, YES, YES!! (Of course then I was in a panic because she asked me to make ANOTHER card for it!!! LOL!!!)

So please go over and check me out there! Toot, toot, toot (that's me tooting my own horn {grin}) The DT members have some fun projects posted over there too so scroll around.

I used two Taylored Expressions stamp sets on this card - the cuppie in the field of flowers is from "A Year of Sweets 2" and the sentiment is from the set "A Year of Sweet Sentiments". The pretty flowers are from Taylor also (and they are on sale right now!).

The sketch I used for this card is this weeks CPS114.

AND - to top it off - did you notice my new watermark??? I just bought it (and 2 others!) from Karen Giron - one of Taylored Expressions great DT members - she charges just $2.00 per watermark and has several pretty designs to choose from so be sure to check that out too!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! My niece's wedding is tomorrow afternoon - hopefully I'll have a few pics to share from that soon!
