my entry for Taylored Expressions #70

This is a fantastic sketch, so easy to use. I'l definitely be using this again. As well as the Tilda (stamp from my friend,Carole's collection), I used Hero Arts cupcake stamp, SU 'Oval All' set and oval and oval scallop punches and HOTP papers, (ribbon from my stash).

I used these Copics:

Dress - R20, R35, R32, Skin -E000, E02, E50, E51, Hair, Shoes, Spoon- E31, E37, E35, E47, Shirt - B00 and Blender Pen, Wings - B60, Cupcake - YR31, YR28. I added a few white highlights with a white Ranger Inkessentials pen, and added some shimmer with a Sakura stardust pen.

After reading Aimes' news about her being featured on Stamp a Sweet Impression, I was so chuffed for her! The gals goin' global!

I've been altering things again, but nothing finished to show you yet. Works in progress - altered catfood box to make a letter holder, and an altered noodle box to make a bird house.
The errant son has been better behaved this week, a good telling off by my DH, a thorough grounding and removal of his privileges seemed to work. In particular, removal of the laptop - he has a MSN addiction. Let's hope it lasts!
Jan Tink's story she shares about her son with the 'Wayward Finger ' came at just the right time to make me laugh about the trials and tribulations of parenting, check it out, she's got a great sense of humour.
I've recently found a fab site called The Pioneer Woman, I love it! As well as amazing photos and stories of life on the ranch, Ree shares loads of fab recipes. I'm making her 'Chicken Salad' to take to work with me for at least the next two night duties - easy and delicious!



  1. Great job on the challenge - I love your papers and that Tilda is very cute! Thanks so much for the compliments *blush* - global domination is on my list of things to do but not quite there yet! LOL!
    Looking forward to seeing your altered projects soon!
    Mmmmm chicken salad sounds yummy! Need to get into making more effort with my pack up - it's usually just a cheese cob for me! LOL!

  2. Love this sketch and your take on it Alison. Cute card, love the Tilda and Hero Arts stamps, and SU goodies :)

    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Love what you have done with my stamp. Hope to get together soon. (I have bought some more stamps)!!!


  5. I love your card and thanks for listing the copic markers. I just stared using them and it is nice to know what one to get next. I still have a lot to learn about how they work.


I'd love you to leave a comment, makes me happy to read them!
