Today is Taylor Vanbruggens Cup Cake Challenge # 17. Where's the Cup Cake you ask? lol Well, Is not a requirement to have an actual "cupcake" involved. Taylor posts the sketch every Friday, and we create a card, layout or project, based on the sketch.

You know, Ms Vicki, that it simply amazes me how much artistic talent you have sequestered in that tiny little body! Oops! That's right, you aren't an elf, are you? Well, you still amaze me.

Gorgeous card!

Have a loving weekend.

PS: Miss Rose shared with me the link to purchase the botanicals by Crafty Secrets but I wasn't willing to pay over $5 shipping for one $6 booklet! Can you hear me peeping: 'cheap, cheap, cheap' as I suffer along without them? LOL! HL or Mike's should have them soon!
