Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop!!

Good morning! Welcome to the first Taylored Expressions customer blog hop! If you happened here by chance and would like to hop along, be sure to check the hop list at Taylor's blog. I am very excited to be playing along! I opted to use the fabulous sketch below (created by Sankari Wegman).

For our creations, we were asked to use one of the Taylored Expressions stamps released in 2008 or 2009. Fair warning.. you might need some shades before you see my creation!! I absolutely adore Cuppie, so I had to use her in my card. I used A Year of Sweets 2 and A Year of Sweet Sentiments.

I paired Cuppie relaxing poolside with some Cosmo Cricket DeLovely paper. I colored her with Copic markers and Spica glitter pens. It's hard to see the shimmer, but I used the glitter pens for her shades. Here's a detail shot:

I hope you enjoy the hop.. Thanks so much for stopping by!
