TECC53 Shabby Bird

January 30th, 2009

Wowzas!  What an incredible response to my sketch for Taylor’s huge Cupcake Celebration last week.  Want to know who won the drawing for my sketch?  Scroll to the bottom of this post.  But surely you want to check out this week’s TECC before you do that!  I promise to keep it short!  *wink*



I came home from CHA to find a box full of brand new SU goodies on my door step, so I had to use some of them for this week’s sketch.  I’ve been wanting to do something a little more shabby or vinatge lately so I was excited to get Friends 24-7 and the coordinating Friends jumbo wheel.  The Parisian Breeze dp used here is beautifully thick and textured.  It reminds me of Crate which is one of my favorite paper companies.  And of course I had to find a way to incorporate the new Eyelet Border punch.

The bird was overstamped with the Linen BG stamp (can’t beleive they retired that!) in Caramel ink.  Lots of shabby sponging with the caramel as well, plus some sponging with Baja around the edges of the Kraft base.  This card is SUO with the exception of the chocolate Kaiser Craft pearls…I just couldn’t resist.

Let’s see what the rest of the Cupcake Crew has cooked up…

  • Ana Wohlfahrt
  • Donna Baker
  • Jackie Pedro
  • Monika Davis
  • Stephanie Hargis
  • Vicki Chrisman
  • And now for the winner of the Gift Certificate to Taylored Expressions for entering a card for my sketch…I went to Random.org and drew number 31….and that is Heather/inglishrea!  You can see her card here and her blog here.  Heather please e-mail Taylor to collect your prize!  Congrats!  And thanks to everyone who played.  I hope you had fun! I’m still looking forward to viewing all of your creations!  For all the deets to play this week’s challenge as well as to find out the winners of all the drawings AND the Grand Prize be sure to head over to Taylor’s blog.  To view all the cards uploaded for my sketch click here.

    I’m still recovering from CHA and I have some chores to catch up on, but I sure hope to have some time to play with the rest of the new toys from my SU order.  Trendy Trees and Cheep Talk here I come!
