Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 2

Good morning and welcome to another Taylored Expressions sneak peek! Did you all get hungry while perusing the Baker's Dozen blogs yesterday? I sure did! Today you might want to pour yourself a tall glass of ice cold lemonade and kick back & Chillax, yep - this is today's peek. A new set in the Whimsical Wishes line which will be available for purchase tomorrow - woohoo! There are so many darling images in this set, for both the men and women in your life, and I chose to use this sweet little umbrella drink for my card. I stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it in with Copic Markers. The sketch is from Mercy Kerin, MTSC32, which is just way too much fun not to use. A new sketch blog - sweet! I finished the card with some So Saffron ribbon and Playground Designer Buttons and there you go - a nice Chillaxing card.

Now hop on over to see what delicious treats the Baker's Dozen have blended for you today. Don't forget to grab yourself something cold to drink and sip it along the way.
