Well , certainly hope everyone had wonderful Christmas! It was a little more laid back for us this year.. and that was fine with us. I've miss blogging a bit this past fewdays..but it's been nice to spend time with the fam and just chill a bit. We had our gathering with the "big fam" on Christmas Eve..which is tradition.. then yesterday we were here with Jarad, Kate, Wes and my mom. Totally enjoyable day. I'll be sharing photos over the next couple of days. But today... is Taylors Cupcake Challenge number 48.. and what a fun sketch it was to work with.

This was a stamp set I had admired once on my friend Michelle Whites Blog. She had made the most darling card with it. Well, it wasn't but a few weeks later and a little gift came in the mail.. and among the goodies.. these stamps! I adore this little stamp set.. and every time time I look at it , it reminds me of her.

HI MICHELLE! lol Michelles store - Paper Tales

love this cute little cage

I've decided to try something new. Since I often get emails about what was used on certain things... like what paper or stamp ect... (and I'm way to lazy to list them all)lol I decided while I have it all out, I would just take a photo of the supplies. You should be able to click to see it larger if you need to.

** note** That square background shadow stamp is not part of the bird set.

so in the bottom photo.. I turned them up on their sides so you can see the info.

Be sure to check out the great things the other girls created this week with Taylor's Sketch.
