Psst! Got Cupcakes? I do, I do!...


...that's because I am THRILLED to be this week's Featured Cupcake Sampler at Taylored Expressions!

I also have a funny story that goes along with it! When Taylor posted last week that there wasn't a cupcake sampler last week because the person she asked hadn't gotten back to her, I was thinking to myself "Is that person CRAZY???" "WHO wouldn't want to be the Featured Cupcake Sampler???"

Well, you can only IMAGINE my surprise when I received her email, this time sent to my old AND new email address that it was ME!!! We had exchanged a few emails back and forth a LONG time ago when she was sweet enough to answer some questions about how she photographs her beautiful cards... and I no longer have that email address! Oh, gosh, how funny!

All that being said, can I TELL you how excited I am?!?!?!?! This is such a fun honor and I am ecstatic to be posting today to tell you all this and show you my card!
I used the adorable Downtown Diva set to create my card based on the sketch. These little cuppies are so cute and I had an absolute BLAST coloring in the little row of shops. That is one of my favorite images and although it's a lot of coloring, I just adore it!

Have you guys been over to Taylored Expressions lately to see the really sweet and growing line of her "Stamp a Sweet Impression" stamps? They are awesome! The quality is wonderful-they are really deeply etched rubber and they're PINK! An extra fabulous little perk! :) Seriously though, you may have remembered me saying on THIS post how great the Customer Service is, too, and that's huge in this industry.

I really want to thank Taylor again for having me this week. I am just over the moon about it!

Can't wait to see what you guys do with this week's sketch! Be sure to head on over to Taylor's blog and check out all the deets on how to upload your card, using keyword TECC69 if you upload to SCS or PaperCraft planet.

I hope you guys have "sweet" plans for this weekend! I know mine was already made by getting to be the Featured Cupcake Sampler this week-not quite sure how you can top that!

Hugs and smiles to all you guys!
Jessica :)

P.S. Speaking of Cupcakes, Please be sure to scroll down for a Prettie BIG Cupcake, actually... I guess there's a theme going here! ;) XOXO

Hey Miss Jess,

Howya doing??? O.K. I am seriously putting my foot down. Some time in the next week we are going to have that 3 way call!!! When you call Janna you just tell her to go on and dial my number!!! No choices that is what is going to happen!!!

Glad you enjoyed the little joke this morning I did not know what it was about until after I typed the e-mail then she informed me the funny or not so funny part of the story!!! (Ugh you know how I feel about that subject!!!! creepy carzy!!!!)

Well I love your cup cake card and so glad you got featured!!!!

Have a great day and hope you get feeling better soon!!!
