My 15 Minutes of Fame! LOL!


Well it’s the end of another week – I hear you cheer “Woo Hoo!” but for me, it means it’s the end of my holiday from work :o( I’m certainly not down in the dumps though, as I have some REALLY exciting news to share with you all! Y’see although I haven’t posted much this week, I have been a busy bee but had to keep it hush hush until now…

Earlier this week I received an email from Jami Sibley who is a part of Taylored Expressions – y’know the company that make the cute cupcake stamps!? Jami spotted my card in the Splitcoaststampers gallery and asked me to be ‘Our Friday Friend’ the over on theStamp a Sweet Impression blog! Well as you can imagine I had to email straight back to see where the stitch up was LOL! However, to my amazement it was all genuine! WOW! I was soooooo excited that I wanted to tell the world there and then! I had (and still have) the biggest Cheshire Cat grin stuck to my face!

So over the last couple of days I was asked to create a card based on today’s Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge # 70 designed by Taylor Van Bruggen. I felt so privileged to have had a sneak peek at the sketch! As well as this I had answer a few questions about myself for an interview – not that I think I’m that interesting but it goes with the job!

So no pressure then eh? LOL! After a sleepless night trying to rack my brains I finally came up with my card. Here’s a sneak peek of it but if you wanna check it out in full (along with my interview) you’ll have to visit the SASI blog. I really hope you do because I’d love you to not only check out my little piece of fame, but also the work of the others (much more talented in my opinion) stampers – I’m in awe at their work!

Card Recipe

(Just in the hope it might encourage you to pop across to check it out LOL!)

Stamps: Taylored Expressions, Doctors Orders

Ink: Memento – Tuxedo Black

Papers: K and Co Belle Matt Pad by Amy Butler

Others: Promarkers, Cuttlebug, Nestabilities, Cuttlebug Embosing Folder Spots and Dots, White Gel Pen, Pink Bling (Hero Arts), Dimensional sticker from Papermania, Green Ribbon (from my collected stash!)

I will post my card up in full sometime over the weekend - I just wanted to be able to say it 'premiered' over on the SASI blog LOL! What am I like? Next thing I know I'll be demanding a red carpet to get outta bed LOL!

Oh and if you’re wondering, those sweet cupcake stamps are a dream to work with. Not only are they made from the cutest pink rubber but they stamp very clear lines and clean beautifully! Mine have been used quite a bit and yet they're still the sweetest shade of pink!

I’ve also been busy creating a few other bits n bobs this week that I’m just dying to share with you but you’ll just have wait as I’m afraid of the intended recipients sneaking a peek and spoiling a surprise!

Happy Cupcake Friday and have super duper weekend!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Cupcake Hugs!
