Happy Friday!  It’s time for a new Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge!  New sketches are offered on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of each month.

This is a fun one.  I started out to create a recessed window card with a nested frame, but as I got going I realized I could go just one step further and make it a shaker!  So why not?  (BTW – the perfect foam tape for shakers is the double thick 1/8″ roll at TE.) Click on the photos to see them larger.

I used my favorite TE Belated Birthday A la Carte – Stand Out along with MME papers from the Stella & Rose Gertie 6×6 pad.  I stamped an extra balloon so it could be outside the shaker and I covered it with stickles.  The really fun thing about the whole collection of Belated Birthday A la Cartes is the combo of inside and outside sentiments. AND you get a large image plus the 2 sentiments for just $6.95!!  This one says “I didn’t forget your birthday” on the front.  And on the inside…

“I just wanted my card to stand out from the crowd!”  I hate that I can never seem to get birthday cards out on time, but at least this way I have a cute reason to send them late.  😉

I hope you’ll play along with TESC139.  You have 2 weeks to play and you will be entered to win a TE Store gift certificate. TE stamps are NOT reqquired.  Get all the deets in the TE Forum on SCS.  And now lets’ see what the rest of the Sketch Crew has in store:

What do you have planned for the long weekend?  We didn’t make plans since we were supposed to be on vacation last weekend. We need to think of something fun to do!  I hope you enjoy whatever you do!
