Hey it’s Friday!  It’s the 2nd Friday of the month, so it’s time for a new Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge.  I hope you’ll play along.  TE stamps are NOT required and there is a prize drawing offered!  This was a particularly fun sketch in that it uses a non-typical size.

This could be a long card (for a legal sized envie) or a mini-tall card (6.5″ x 3.25″).  My card is a long card and I used Green Acres.  (Are you surprised???) Click the photos to see them much larger.

I’ve been dying to use the “Hay there” sentiment.  It’s a bit of a joke with several friends – we all begin our voicemails to each other with something like “HEYYYYYY Taylor, it’s Jami…”  So I stamped the haystacks onto So Saffron cardstock and colored them with a copic to create the background.  The horse was stamped and colored with various shades of brown copic before being punched out.  The “congratulations” was stamped over a banner image from It’s a Banner Day 1 and cut with the coordinating die.  Hey – I didn’t use any patterned paper here!  What are the chances of that?

Here’s the inside of the card:

Now let’s see what the rest of the Sketch Crew has created with this fun sketch!
