Our Friday Friend - TESC94

Hi everyone! Boy have I missed you!

My surgery went well but the recovery has really taken longer than I thought it would.
The surprising part for me is that I just haven't felt like stamping. Here I am, with eight weeks off work and up until this last week absolutely no desire to create. What's up with that? I thought I would have a stockpile of cards made by now.

One of the things that helped pull me out of my slump was a very exciting email from Jami Sibley asking me if I would be interested in being featured as "Our Friday Friend" on the Stamp a Sweet Impression blog. I was thrilled and honored. I adore Taylored Expressions stamps and those adorable "Cuppies" just make me smile.

I would love for you to play along with Taylor's sketch this week too. It's really a fun one. Just make a card and post a link to it with Mister Linky over at Taylored Expressions. You don't have to use Taylored Expressions stamps for your creation but if you have them, use them!

Thanks for sticking with me during my extended absence. I appreciate it more than you know. I hope to post more tomorrow. Have a terrific Friday!

It's all about the details:
Card stock: Bazzill
Patterned Paper: Basic Grey - Eskimo Kisses

Stamps: Taylored Expressions - Home Sweet Home

Ink: Memento Tuxdeo Black, Papertrey Ink Fresh Snow
Accessories: BoBunny Ho Ho Ho brad, crystals, ribbon, Dimensionals
Tools: MS Punch, Janome sewing machine, Copic Markers
