TECC53: Fun in the Sun for Cuppie


So did y'all have a blast making some or ALL 9 sketches from Taylor's Anniversary Cupcake Challenge Celebration?!  I know I had a great time checking out all the fabulous cards everyone made using my sketch!  The random winner for $10 to spend at Taylored Expressions is poster #7 card*crafter with a sweet cupcake tree card (don't ya wish they grew on trees & you didn't have to go to the trouble of baking them??) 

Now onto my card for this week!  Another fun sketch from Taylor!  I wanted to use my August image from A Year of Sweets 2 the cuppie sunbathing!  Isn't it a riot??  I almost put the white pasty sunblock on his nose but decided against it, thinking I may ruin it at the last minute.  I spent a lot of time blinging up cuppie's umbrella with Taylor's Tiny Twinkles so I didn't want to risk it.  I had so much fun paper-piecing this image with my Basic Grey Cupcake paper.  

Here is Taylor’s sketch so you can play along too!!  You can be eligible to win Cupcake Sampler Honors & be featured on Taylor’s blog using the next Cupcake Friday Sketch!  You’re not required to use cupcakes on your sketch, but if you got ‘em why not use ‘em??  You can create something other than a card but try to keep as close to the sketch as possible. If you’re uploading to Splitcoast, please use keyword TECC53.  Leave a comment on Taylor’s post with a link to your blogpost or gallery link so she can check it out!  You must have your creation uploaded by Monday, February 2 at 10:00 a.m. CST to be eligible for the featured cupcake sampler honors.  Lastly, be sure to have FUN creating!
