Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - Day 2

Welcome back to day two of sneak peeks for Taylored Expressions!  One of the hottest sellers in the TE booth at the Super Show was the new line of Stamps A la Carte! These are single images you can purchase for only $6.95 each! The first 8 images offered by TE are the cutest Animals in Love from the Whimsical Wishes collection. AND a full size set of sentiments coordinates with these images and most likely, many other stamps you might already have.

I am completely in L-O-V-E with these little turtles.  They remind me of the Slowski's - you know, from those cable commercials??  Plus, how adorable is that sentiment!?  This is quite possibly the best Valentine's card for a man I've ever made - how lucky is my man??  hahaha! The turtles are paper pieced and the image panel is sponged with So Saffron ink around the edges.

This next sweet as can be image is another one of my favorites from the Animals In Love stamps.  Their little noses touch and make a little heart - it's the cutest ever!!  The layout of the card is from The Sweet Stop SSS41 and the papers are from the Valentine Key Ingredients kit.

Stop by to see what cute little animals the rest of the Baker's Dozen team has for you today - each image is just darling, so don't miss a single stop:
