Happy Friday! It’s been a busy week around Taylored Expressions with our latest release! If you happened to miss out on the sneak peeks this week just scroll down a little bit to check ’em out. The Baker’s Dozen and I have been busy in our creative kitchens (a.k.a. the stamp studios) bakin’ up some goodies and the rest of the TE staff is busy packing and shipping your orders! So now it’s time to celebrate another Friday with the TESC Sketch challenge! Here’s the sketch…I hope you’ll play along!


Just create a card using the above sketch as inspiration (you’re not required to use TE Stamps in your sample)! Link your creation using Mr. Linky below by Friday, April 16th at 8am PST. I’ll choose the most clever and creative cards to be included in the TESC Top Crops on my blog! Each of our Top Crops receives a blog badge to proudly display on your blog sidebar and a link on my blog for all to marvel at your beautiful creation! Speaking of beautiful creations, you don’t want to miss the Sketch Crew inspiration below! Just click on any of these cards to read more about the details of the card:

I know many of you have been patiently waiting for the results of our Dragonfly Card Drive! You all were generous beyond my wildest imagination (which is why it took us some extra time to tally the cards and announce the winners!). All of you combined together to donate 538 cards which will ultimately be used to bless someone in need! We are currently confirming how many cards the hospital staff feels they can use. Any number beyond that will be donated to another equally worthy charity. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for donating your time and creative talents for this cause! And here are a list of the $50 gift certificate winners drawn at random from among all the entries (1 entry per card sent):

Becky Schmidt
Betty Benton
Traci Davis
Alicia Bowers

Peggy Horn

Please send an email to tayloredexpressions@gmail.com and I will email you back with your gift certificate code. Congratulations to our winners! Our heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you!
