hello there

Most of you know I'm a huge fan of sketch challenges and will use a sketch most days to inspire me, so I was extremely excited to try out Taylor's Cupcake Challenge this weekend - it's one of those sketches that lets me use scraps! This is why I hang on to those little pieces that are just too big to toss. I had some Maine Blueberry paper scraps just sitting on my desk, left over from yesterday's card - so now you get to see a familiar stamp set and paper! I'm using Cheep Talk again - love those birdies! Kind of look like my little birdie in my blog header, no?

Thanks so much for stopping by today - see you back soon.
