Have you seen Linda’s news about the 2nd Annual A-MUSE-A-PALOOZA!?!? I went to the event last year at my local stamp store and it was a blast! It sounds like they have a TON of fun stuff in store for us! Weekly design challenges, sneak peaks, and other contests will be featured on the A Muse blog. And this year they’re having an A Muse Ambassador contest to award the biggest fan! Well, I LOVE A MUSE, so I entered the Ambassador contest! You can register HERE to enter the weekly prize drawings and I would be tickled pink if you’d put me down as your referral! Go check out the A-Muse-A-Palooza site and the A Muse blog! It’s going to be an *A Musing* month here at Taylored Expressions… are you ready!?

One of my absolute favorite things about A Muse are their sentiments!! They are so clever and punny and I love the fonts! They are also small in size so it’s not hard to find a place on your card to stamp them. I used the A Muse Happy Birthday sentiment on this card. Another favorite thing that I can never seem to get enough of are the Twinkle Stickers. These are self-adhesive rhinestones that will dress up any project in a hurry. I put twinkle stickers on the flower in her hair and across the flowers at the bottom of the card. I had to pull out one of my bellas last night because they were feeling ignored. I used my new Samantha Collection from Crate Paper to do the paper piecing. I stamped the flower from PaperTrey’s Green Thumb in the background and across the Doodlebug Paper Frills at the bottom. The ribbon is from Michael’s. Hope you all have a great day!
