Happy Birthday hop for Nancy!!

nancy bday hop
Happy Monday, folks!  Today’s card is one I made especially for Nancy McKinney {Cardworthy}, illustrator of Whimsical Wishes stamps for Taylored Expressions!  Several of her friends and fellow Baker’s Dozen design team members, with the help of Karen M. have organized a special hop to celebrate Nancy!! 

My card was made using For the Love of Cupcakes, which Nancy illustrated with the help of sketch inspiration by Beate for this weekend’s sketch {WSC106}, which I thought would showcase the fun cupcakes she drew.  I paper-pieced the cupcake liners with papers from the September 20th key ingredients.  On the cupcakes, I made the ‘icing’ with white opal liquid pearls.   
I hope that you will spend a few moments hopping around to feast your eyes on the wonderful inspiration the following ladies have to share with you today:

Karen Motz
Dana White
Michelle Leishman
Janet Rossi
Wendy Bond
Jodi Collins
Karen Giron
Sankari Wegman
Charmaine Ikach

I hope you have a wonderful day, Nancy and thank you for sharing your talent for illustrating with TE month after month!  I always marvel at your creations and LOVE working with them! 

Before you go - be sure to check out Taylor's blog - her and half of the Baker's Dozen are doing a Product Focus on the Binder Boxes in the TE store - they can be used for MORE than JUST storing your STAMPS! Pin It
