Taylored Expressions Share Joy Campaign: Inspiration Challenge Week

Hello! The Taylored Expressions 5th Birthday Bash is continuing this week with a new Share Joy Campaign, benefiting the Union Rescue Mission of Los Angeles, Prodigal's Home of Phoenix, and Iowa Homeless Youth Shelter of Des Moines. These wonderful charities work tirelessly to bring comfort and care to many homeless individuals and families throughout the year. One way they are sharing joy each and every day is by celebrating the birthdays of their participants, and you can help by sending in your handmade birthday cards!

This week, Taylored Expressions will help you to create with a different Birthday Inspiration Challenge each day. These charities need birthday cards of all kinds: child, adult, baby, so send in your funny, sweet, pretty, elegant, works of art and know that you will be brightening someone's day in a way only a handmade card can do.  To get all the details on how to participate, please hop over to the Taylored Expressions Blog.

Today's challenge is a sketch challenge, one of my favorite type of challenges! Sketch is courtesy of the fabulous, Jen Shults! For my sample, I used Graphic Greetings Birthday. I turned the sketch 90 degrees.

There are other DT and alumni who have made samples for today. Please make sure to visit the Taylored Expressions Blog to see the full link list!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
