Taylored Expressions Birthday Bash Blog Hop

Happy Friday! Welcome to the Taylored Expressions Birthday Bash Blog Hop! We are celebrating Taylored Expressions 2nd Birthday.

If you came from Lori Craig's blog, you are on the right track! The fabulous Rosie Hughes is next on the hop! Or if you want to start from the beginning then head back to Taylor's blog.

I picked an older sketch from Taylor's sketch book for my card. You can download the sketch book from the side bar of her blog. First the sketch:
Here is my card:

I got to play with the newly released Belated Birthday - Stand Out A la Carte for my card. Isn't these birds so cute? I love them!

I paired the cute image with Cosmo Cricket's lovely Togethernes collection.

Here is the inside of the card. The A la Carte came with two sentiments for belated birthday cards.

All new stamps and products are now available at the TE store, including this cute little stamp set.

To celebrate the anniversary, here are the specials that we have going on at the store:
  • Purchase ANY 4 full-size stamp sets and receive a free Binder box
  • Purchase ANY 8 A la Carte stamps and receive a free set of Stamp Storage Panels
  • 4 order will be selected at random (one each day from Friday - Monday) to win a $25 TE gift certificate.
So don't forget to head over to the TE Store after the hop!

It's time to send you to Rosie's blog. Have fun hopping! =)
