Good morning! Thanks again for coming to the party yesterday! I’m glad you’re all having fun! πŸ™‚ Another big thanks to Kim at My Favorite Things for the wonderful party prizes!

Hi Taylor! What fun, the only problem is, I’m not winning, girl! I love both these sets. I have the birthday set, not sure what it’s called. The dog walking set is my favorite though. Hope all is well in sunny CA. It’s COLD here in MN, but is that a surprise? NO!!!

And Lucky #253 Lisa Banks who left this comment:
Such a Sweet givaway!!! My favorite set would be “Hot Stuff” although I love them ALL!!

Amy & Lisa, please email me with your snail mail address (tayloredexpressions@gmail.com). I will send you Let’s Go for a Walk or Meet me at the Cafe! It will be a surprise! Aren’t surprises so fun!? Disclaimer: any prizes that are unclaimed one week after the announcement will be gifted to someone else.

Are you ready for another giveaway!? Today’s prize is from little ‘ole me! I probably don’t have much you guys would want in the way of free product, so I thought I’d offer something handmade! I received a lot of comments on the monogrammed stationery set I created with the new PaperTrey Spiral Bouquet set so that is today’s prize! The winner will receive a customized set of the monogrammed stationery pictured. It includes six cards and matching envelopes packaged in a clear box with a stamped belly band. You choose the monogram and the color combination (black, white, and an accent color of your choice). All you have to do is leave me a comment and tell me what you’d like to see more of on my blog… more tutorials, more recipes, more swaps, more cupcake cards, more something else? Of course I can’t please everyone, but I’m curious what makes you keep coming back to the blogs you love!

I almost forgot to post these! I made these Elzybells cards for Jami’s DD & DDA Challenge. She discovered that several Dirty Dozen and Dirty Dozen Alumni had purchased the same Elzybells image so Jami had the great idea to issue a challenge. The challenge is this… use Elzybells A Winter Song image, use Pretty in Pink cardstock, do not use any patterned paper. That last part of the challenge literally made me *gasp* for air! LOL! Well, I only made it through one card without patterned paper, but I was having too much fun that I just had to keep going using some A Muse polka dot notecards! All the cards are very simple. Ms. Elzybell is embellished with a glitter/applique combo and colored with Copic markers. You can check out all the DD & DDA Challenge cards here!

Hope you all have a wonderful day! Stay tuned tomorrow for the winner announcement and another party prize giveaway!
