TESC77 Circus Birthday

August 7th, 2009

Happy Friday!  It’s time for another one of Taylor’s fun sketch challenges and I hope you’ll play along with us.  For those of you regular players please note a slight change in the keyword to TESC77 instead of TECC77 when uploading to SCS or PCP.  We’ve always said *cupcakes not required* but not everyone believed us, so Taylor has changed the challenge name to the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge to eliminate any confusion for players.

This sketch was just what I needed for my 3rd class project for tonight.  I was planning to use Circle Circus for a card and lo and behold TESC77 was perfect!

 I had the layout all worked out with the stamps and sketch, but was having trouble settling on a color combo.  Then I remembered what I often tell my customers – when you need a good color combo look at the Designer Paper section of the SU Catty.  Sure enough the color tesc77-circle-circus-jami-09-custom.jpgcombo of Pink Flamingo dp was just the feeling I was looking for – Real Red, Cameo Coral, Tempting Turquoise, and Summer Sun.  The Coral panel was embossed with the SU Finial Press embossing folder.  This 4.25″ square card is SUO (Stampin’ Up! Only).

Now let’s see what the rest of the Sketch Crew has cooked up for us this week:

  • Ana Wohlfahrt
  • Donna Baker
  • Jackie Pedro  
  • Lynn Mercurio
  • Monika Davis
  • Sherrie Siemens
  • Stephanie Hargis
  • Vicki Chrisman
  • Janet Marks is this week’s Featured Sampler
  • Taylor Van Bruggen – get all the deets and play along with us!
  • Some of you know about the ordeal we had with the vet’s office after picking up Tessa last Friday and finding out later in the day that she had not had the pain meds she was supposed to get that morning (her surgery was the previous day and she had spent the night there).  She had a really rough couple of days – poor little thing.  She started showing improvement in Sunday, but it was really just last night that she started acting like herself again and I was able to take her on a short walk.  I love that silly little dog so much and it’s been a rough week around here.  Looking forward to fun at class tonight. 

    Oh and I can’t forget the home improvement update:  My valance is still not back from the cleaners and I forgot to call the guy yesterday to find out what’s up since he said *a couple of days* a week ago Wednesday.  *eye roll*  We got our new mirror up over the fireplace – it’s so pretty!  I’ve done little stuff like purchase throw rugs for the kitchen and bathroom.  The to-do list is still pretty long, but we’ll get there!  🙂  Curt has been out of town on Rocket Scientist Business (seriously!) and I’m really looking forward to having him home!

    Thanks for stopping by.
