TECC76 Happy Place

July 31st, 2009

Happy Friday!  Yesterday morning I dropped my sweet Tessa off at the vet’s office to have her spayed.  I cried when I left and I’ve really been missing her.  I get to go pick her up in a couple of hours and I can hardly wait!  I had a bit of hard time getting started stamping yesterday, but I pulled out my TE July 20th Key Ingredients Kit featuring Early Bird papers to inspire me.  (Both the papers and the KI should be back in stock at the TE Store any day now.) I ended up really having fun creating this card for Taylor’s sketch today – TECC76.  You can play along too by going to Taylor’s blog to get the sketch, all the details and to see her sample too.


I stamped the house from The TE/SASI set Frightful Night onto cardstock from the KI and cut it out.  I colored some of the details with Copics.  The house is popped up on foam tape for some dimension and layered over a scallop circle punches with a Marvy Mega punch.  I just got the SU Playground Designer Buttons and they were sitting out on my table.  I was pleasantly surprised to see how well they coordinated with the Early Bird papers!

The little sentiment is from a retired SU set called Cute Converse.  I use that set for so many different things, it’s really too bad they retired it so quickly.

Now it’s time to see what the rest of the Cupcake Crew has cooked up:

  • Ana Wohlfahrt
  • Donna Baker
  • Jackie Pedro
  • Lynn Mercurio
  • Monika Davis
  • Sherrie Siemens
  • Stephanie Hargis
  • Vicki Chrisman
  • Teresa Kline is this week’s Featured Sampler – AND –
  • Bonnie Sharp is Our Friday Friend over at the SASI Blog
  • Home improvement update:  The drapes came back from the cleaners…sort of.  The main valance in our big bow window is somewhat complicated and mounted on wood strips.  They had that valance all wrong and had to take it back to the shop to work on further.  They said they’ll call me in a couple of days.  The rest of the drapes are up and look good, so I’m crossing my fingers for the big valance.

    Thanks for stopping by.  Have a fantastic weekend!
