Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop 6!

Hi and welcome to the 6th Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop! I hope you made your way here from Cassie's Blog and if so, you are on the right track! If you love Taylored Expressions as much as I do, you will love this month's blog hop theme...Thankful! I know what I am thankful for and next week (here in the US) I will be surrounded by what I am most thankful for...MY FAMILY!

This card is sort of representative of my family. There's the Dad down on the bottom sitting atop a few pearls...and the Mom at the top with the little boy bird and little girl bird...my son and daughter!

I love this Taylored Expressions stamp set called Tweet Hearts. It's so versatile! You can use all the different images to create scenes or use any of them individually. My sentiments come from the Fresh Flowers set and the Year of Sweet Sentiments sets.

I added a little to the sketch designed by Sankari Wegman to accomodate the size of my image. I love all the little details in this sketch from the strips of paper to the ribbon and bow. I think I'll be using it in the future! This image uses six different colors of ink by Memento and ColorBox. I used a brown fine point marker to add some lines in the branch for the bark. The pearls are from Queen & Co. and the sparkly ribbon is something I had in my stash.

Your next stop on the hop is Sankari's Blog and I'm sure she will have something very special for you!

Thanks for stopping by!
