You're my hero!!

Hi there! Happy Wednesday to ya! Guess what? Ok, you'll never guess so I'm just gonna blurt it out... LOL!! I'm officially a Baker's Dozen DT member!! Pinch me please!! Can you believe it?? Taylor asked me to stay on after my Guest Designer roll ended February 28th. Woo-hoo!!


Ok, so today and tomorrow, I'll be featuring a few sneak peeks of the upcoming sets being released from Taylored Expressions. The release day is this Friday, March 5th and you SO don't wanna miss this one! Today's sneak peek features the newest set in the TE Giving Tree Program, "You're My Hero". The TE Giving Tree program will donate $7.00 of each charitable set sold during the months of March through May to CureSearch in memory of Taylor's 10 year old next door neighbor, Darrin Zimmerman, who lost his battle with cancer last fall. CureSearch unites the world's largest childhood cancer research organization, the Children's Oncology Group, and the National Childhood Cancer Foundation through their mission to cure childhood cancer. I think this is a fabulous idea and I'm so pleased to be able to participate in this cause.

I decided to go with a totally ROCKIN' theme for this card using the "Rock Star" Key Ingredients kit along with the "You're My Hero" set. So many AWESOME things in this Key Ingredients kit, from the cool DP, to the glitter brads, and even this spah'kling ribbon!! Cool beans, huh? So, I started by stamping my image with Versamark ink onto the black cardstock and then embossing with silver tinsel embossing powder. Man, the image just pops off that black doesn't it? I did the same with the sentiment below and rounded the corners as well. I punched the diamond latice border with my Fiskars border punch and adhered this FABBY DP from the Rock Star KI kit on top. To finish, I added the chipboard star tag, a few glitter brads and this great ribbon, all from the kit as well. Ok, that does it for me today! Be sure to stop back by the hen house tomorrow for another sneak peek. Oooooh, I'm SO excited to show you... You're gonna love it!! Until tomorrow.... {{{hen hugs}}}
