Oh my goodness what a glorious day it was here today! I'm talking a 70 degree, windows open, birds chirping.. vicki's happy.. sorta day!!! Ohhhh.. did I need that! I've lived in Nebraska long enough to now.. it's not going to last, but oh.. it was good! Molly even got to play a little Frisbee today.. so she was a happy pup.
Today is Friday.. Taylors Sketch Challenge day. She's provided us with another fun sketch.

Speaking of Taylor, she Taylor is celebrating the First Birthday of the Taylored Expressions Store and she wants to invite you to the party! The festivities will last all weekend long with games and prizes on her blog!
There will be drawings for Party Favor Packages for three days - Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with a different package given away each day. PLUS on Monday there will be a Sweepstakes Grand Prize winner drawn from all the orders placed at the Taylored Expressions Store from Thursday through Sunday. In order to enter today's drawing all you have to do is participate in the TECC sketch by Sunday night!

Okay.. here's my card.

Here's the supplies I used. For the flower in the center. I just stamped it twice, cut it out and layered it. The sentiment and the patterns on the squares are rubons.
This weeks Cupcake sampler is Broni Holcombe
Please stop over and check out her creation.. along with these other super talented girs.

Here's hoping for another nice day! I'm in the mood for Spring! Bring it on!! lol
Now grab a handful of jelly beans for the road.

I hope your day is fantastic!

Really pretty Vicki. Love the way you used the rub-ons - I never would have thought of that!

Oh that jelly bean picture is just wrong! I actually reached for my screen and was disappointed when I couldn't have any!

Your card is beautiful, Vicki! You have such a knack for design!

Thanks so much for sharing the 'beans!' I love your take on the sketch . . . the flower is perfect but it would take me over an hour to cut out two of them!
Have a wonderful weekend.

Neat flower accent and the brads are also a good element.

It's a good life!
