TECC31 Make Mine Chocolate

Hi's Friday and that can only mean one seriously, it means it's the end of another work week, the beginning of the Labor Day Weekend, and it's Cupcake Friday which means it's a Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge coming your way.

Taylor provided this sketch for us to use this week, and I took the opportunity to use some older patterned paper. Funny how this stuff tends to multiply overnight and the more I use my older patterned paper, the more I seem to have of it! How in the world does that happen?

This card is pretty straight forward so I won't bore you with lots of detail. I did add some stickles to my brads on either side of the sentiment (which I love and may make this my official motto). It's difficult to see the stickles, so you will just have to trust me when I tell you, it's there.

This week's special honor of Featured Cupcake Sampler goes to Nancy Morgan (Paper Smiles) To see the card that won her this honorary title, click HERE. Congratulations Nancy! I raise my cupcake to toast to your cupcakieness! (can you toast with a cupcake?)
