TECC59: Going Green while thinking of You!


Thank God it's Cupcake Friday!! woohoo! This brings us another fabulous Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge! I made this a big 6" square card to show off all these awesome recycled designer papers by DCWV - the GREEN Stack that I got in a RAK from Irene (thank you again*wink*) Isn't it perfect to go along with yesterday's SCS challenge Ways to Use it WT209 to go Green!?!? Of course I had to use my new Whimsical Wishes Sets Branching Out & Branching Out Coordinates because the owl & tree limb went perfectly with these papers!

Speaking of Going Green - it's exciting researching all the ways we plan to incorporate Green Living in our next home that we are going to build. John went to a Green Building show a few weekends ago & came back with some valuable information! We have a good sized binder we are collecting our info in...one of the exciting things we learned about is Living Walls, where you build a wall of plants in your home to help with the flow of oxygen, a natural air filter. The temperature near the wall is about 2 degrees less than the rest of the house. I love plants and love the idea of having them in one place for watering even more.

Here is Taylor’s sketch so you can play along too!! You can be eligible to win Cupcake Sampler Honors & be featured on Taylor’s blog using the next Cupcake Friday Sketch! You’re not required to use cupcakes on your sketch, but if you got ‘em why not use ‘em?? You can create something other than a card but try to keep as close to the sketch as possible. If you’re uploading to Splitcoast, please use keyword TECC59.

Beginning this week Taylor will be giving away a free Tiny Twinkles to one random winner from among all the people who upload their sketch challenge cards to PaperCraftPlanet using the same TECC59 keyword. So while you're uploading your card to SCS and your blog, hop over to PCP and enter yourself in the fun there! Then be sure to leave a comment on Taylor’s post with a link via Mr. Linky to your blogpost or gallery link so she can check it out! You must have your creation uploaded by Monday, March 16 at 10:00 a.m. CST to be eligible for the featured cupcake sampler honors. Lastly, be sure to have FUN creating!
