TECC67 Heard the News?

May 8th, 2009

Good morning and Happy Friday!  I don’t actually have news to share – that’s just the sentiment from TE Boys Will Be Boys that I used on my card for today’s TECC (Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge – *cupcakes not required*.)

So yesterday I’m working away designing cards for my Stampin’ Up! Class tonight (I don’t usually design so last minute, but I decided to totally change what I wanted to do so I started over) and I’m really happy with my progress and intending to keep plugging away so everything will be cut and ready before I get up this morning.  It’s well into the evening and I’m deciding how much more I want to accomplish and it occurs to me “Oh I need to get the Our Friday Friend post typed up over at Stamp a Sweet Impression.”  Ok – that is totally do-able. I continue with what I’m doing and I happen to pick up my print out of TECC66 and as I start to throw it away I notice that I also printed TECC67 on the same paper.  And it suddenly occurs to me that I haven’t made a card for TECC67 yet.  D’OH!!!!  So I pushed my class stuff aside and got to work.


This card came together very quickly (like I had any choice – LOL!)  I had this SU Sweet Slumber dp out for one of my class cards and this bold polka dot had caught my eye although I didn’t use it for class.  I left it on the top of the stack so I would be sure to use it soon.  This newspaper image was the one I had thought of using for the sketch earlier this week….and I was just really glad it fit so easily.  My EK Success wavy border punch seemed perfect  Some SU Riding Hood Red ribbon and some Kaiser Craft red pearls and a little hand doodling were all the finishing touches this bold patterned card needed.

My intention for the inside was to use the SU sentiment “You’re absolutley fabulous” so this card could be sent to a good friend or used as a thank you or congrats card.  Not until I was well into making this card did I realize that the headline on the newspaper is “Amazing Dad!”  Oh carp!  My choices were to be sure to send this to someone over 40, like myself, who probably couldn’t see the headline without reading glasses, or I could try to change the “dad” to “day”.  Well I chose the latter and it ended up just drawing more attention – I should have left well enough alone.  Oh well!

Now it’s time to see what the rest of the Cupcake Crew has cooked up. tecc67-inside-jami-custom.jpg
