a year (or day) of sweets

Good Tuesday morning everyone! I am going to need to keep reminding myself that it is Tuesday or I'll think we are on Monday all day! It will sure make this week go fast!

Today I'm showing you a card I made for the Taylored Expressions sketch challenge. I was going to use it for the Key Ingredients challenge too but realized I didn't use any stitching. Bummer!

Anyway, I used the stamp from Year of Sweets 2 that I would consider for May, cut it out with Curved Rectangle Nestibilities and then colored it. These cupcakes are SO sweet! If you noticed I successfully made some clouds in my scene that I just love! The wonderful Kerry from Three Clovers Designs showed how she makes hers a while ago and I just had to try! The trick is oval Nestitibilites and then just sponging around your images for the perfect cloud look...pretty cool, huh?

If you've been blog hopping recently I'm sure you've seen everyone talking about the Stamp Out Alzheimer's group. I'm just here to tell you that if you haven't donated (only $5 but more if you'd like) to become a part of the SOA group...ya might want to! There are tons of challenges (WITH prizes) as well as daily giveaways, some wonderful stories being told, and just a lot of camaraderie going on over there. Jen Tapler started this wonderful group and week long group. You can go to her BLOG to donate and then within a small amount of time you'll be hooked up to get into the SOA site.

I have a couple of design team commitments this week but I'm going to try and roll them into some of the fun challenges they have on SOA so watch out everyone...here I come!

Have a super day everyone!
