Taylor Expressions Cupcake Cake Challenge #24

Wow.. here it is Friday already! Where did this week go? Friday, means it's another Taylor Challenge. And she ..once again, provided us with another great sketch.
Here's my card from this weeks sketch.

Here's Taylors sketch for this week.
While I had the papers out, I decided to make a set with another little gift card and and a tag.

The "Happy Birthday" on the large card is a Autumn Leaves rub on, but everything else it stamped with Crafty Secrets Clear Art stamps.
Even that little zig zag stitch is a stamp from the Sewing Set.

Craft Secrets has so many stamp sets to choose from now I cant believe it. As I was looking through them to make these cards.. I was just amazed. You can check them all out here.

The papers are Anna Griffin and Melissa Frances.

Very cute! Yes, Crafty Secrets has a lovely selection of stamps! I have a lot of them and they are a lot nicer than some of the other acrylic stamps I have for stamping. I really need some of the new sets coming out that I've seen peaks of!

Love, Love, Love the birds. Just bought a set made from Unity Stamp Company today with birds and owls. I actually found my first Crafty Secrets item today Cotton Scraps, at a stamp store. They only had two items, but she says they go fast and she is expecting more soon. Can't wait to see what she gets into the store. Love your work as always.

Oooh, Vicki! I'm loving the Taylor Expressions Cupcake Challenge! Your take on the sketches is always awesome and makes me want to make the same cards! (have to copy-don't have a lick of talent when it comes to cards!) Is Crafty Secrets going to expand their market share by coming East? They are no where to be found in my local craft shops and I do so want some of their stamps.
I know CHA is coming and you will be incommunicado for what? 3 days? Well, I will just have to hang on tight until you share with us.
