Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past #2 Blog Hop!!!

Hello!!!! I'm SOOO excited to be playing along with this months Blast from the Past Blog Hop... SOOOO excited... ok a little bit nervous too... Have you seen the FABULOUS ladies who are playing along... FABULOUS!!!!

The name of the game is to create a little something using a TE stamp set released through to April 2010. Ooohh and as if that wasn't fun enough... ONE lucky participant will win a stamp set of their choice!!! WOW... Please let it be me.. PLEASE!!! hahaha

I've used my Sprinkled with Love stamp set today... LOVE that set... it's a set I purchased with my little girl in mind. We often go for "Sprinkle Drink" dates and this set.. well PERFECT.

Sooooo... here is my card for today's blog hop:-

I've kept it nice and simple today. The show stopper is the YUMMY doughnut which I've stamped then coloured using my SU! Markers. To create the GLAZE I smothered it in Crystal Effect and VERY, VERY, VERY patiently waited overnight for it to dry before I even attempted to put it together.. oh ok.. i may have added the little Pink sprinkles before it dried.. but I promise that was all the fiddling I did.. and I assure you that in itself was a challenge.. hahaha.

I created a scallop around the doughnut circle using my Scallop Circle punch then mounted it all up on some dimensionals . The sentiment has been stamped in Chocolate Chip and then to finish it off I added some Melon Mambo ribbon. I've actually created a dry embossed border around the edge of the cardstock, but I'm not sure the photo is showing it very clearly... SORRY!!!

So there you go be sure to visit all the other AMAZINGLY talented ladies on the Blog Hop, I know you wont be disappointed.




Thanks so much for stopping by.
