TECC63 A Good Friday

Hello everyone.  It's Good Friday so my husband and I took the day off.  Yippee, let the holiday weekend begin.  Every Friday is a good Friday for me, but it's especially good when a day off from work is involved!

It's also another Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge - WHOOHOO!  Can you tell that Fridays are my favorite day of the week? :)

I used the sketch Taylor supplied us (see below) and reached for a stamp set that I borrowed from a stamping friend of mine A LONG TIME AGO...and shame on me for not returning it yet, but in my heart, I don't think she's missing it much only because she is getting very close to delivery TWINS.  I imagine that she has other things on her mind at the moment.  Sorry Kelly!   But to be honest, I am a wee bit pleased that I had it on hand for today's challenge. :)

The flower that I added to my card is from the pretties kit.  I used my Copic marker to add some yellow polka dots to it and then brush on Shimmerz Bling which gave the petals a pretty shimmer.
Now it's your turn...just create a card using this sketch and then let Taylor know where she can view your creation.  You could be chosen to be Taylor's Featured Cupcake Sampler next week!

This week's Featured Cupcake Sampler is Joan Ervin.  Joan's blog - Stamping with a Passion is filled with a veritable plethora of unique designs, awesome sense of color and her fabulous Copic coloring gift.  Be sure to pop on over to her blog and check out what delicious treats Joan has to share with you today.

For more inspiration, be sure to check out the Cupcake Crew who will have amazing projects for your viewing pleasure.
and don't forget Taylor!

Thank you for looking in today.  I hope that your Easter weekend is blessed with the knowledge that He has Risen!
