Hey there! If you stopped by yesterday then you know we have lots of fun and prizes planned for today! The Baker’s Dozen and I are joining together to highlight our Pinterest boards for the September Studio Challenge and we’re inviting you to play along too! Did you know Taylored Expressions has over 30 Pinterest boards filled with crafty eye-candy!? Since it’s our birthday month I’ve created a special board filled with my favorite birthday inspiration (like cookies, cakes, and CUPCAKES!) and the Baker’s Dozen gals have chosen a photo from this board to inspire a stamped creation!

There are several ways for you to play along too and win some awesome prizes while you’re at it! We’re giving away five copies of the 2013 Taylored Expressions Catalog & Idea Book along with a grand prize stamp set of your choice! Here are details on how you can enter:

Last week, our little Madi celebrated her 2nd birthday and we had a farm-themed birthday bash! So when I pinned this board several weeks ago I had cows and pigs and tractors on the brain. I found this adorable cake:

As I sat down to create my card over the weekend I knew I needed to make thank you notes for the gifts that Madi received at her party. Since I needed several of them I wanted to keep it simple and flat (for mailing). Using the ‘farm theme’ as inspiration, I picked up the Green Acres stamp set and came up with this design:

I used leftover cow patterned paper from the party decorations, the grass border die, thank sentiment from the Bugabee stamp set, and spelled out the ‘moo’ using the Tall & Skinny Alpha dies. Here are all the supplies you’ll find in the TE Store:

You’ll want to check out how the rest of the Baker’s Dozen was inspired by the birthday pin board and then head to our Pinterest boards and grab your own crafty supplies to create for a chance to win! Come back here and link up your creation below so that we can all marvel!
