with Love and Sprinkles

Today Taylor and the Taylored Expressions design team are showcasing Sprinkled with Love. Although I can’t really remember the day that I created the first image in this set, I posted my card back in April and shared a little bit of my day. I guess Henri had a meltdown and I fixed it with a trip through the Tim Horton’s drive thru for a sprinkled doughnut. Isn’t everything better with love and sprinkles?! On the inside of the card I wrote:


Henri,
When you’re feeling sad
or down don’t worry—
just ask for a sprinkle doughnut!
I love you always!
Mommy



By April I had already illustrated several stamp sets in the Whimsical Wishes line—Branching Out, Branching Out Coordinates, Fresh Flowers and Boys Will Be Boys—so I smiled when Daniela Hendea {PurpleD} wrote her comment: Adorable card! You should start designing your own stamps! :-) Taylor visited my blog too and emailed me about it: I just loved that cute donut you did with the "everything is better with sprinkles" sentiment. I thought it would make an adorable stamp set …Maybe it could be a mini set?

The mini set became a full set and here it is…14 fun images including sweet treats and sentiments and lots of sprinkles!! You can stamp the sprinkles or get creative. For my peek today I used assorted glass beads to sprinkle my non-fat latte and added some to the strip of patterned paper too.






After yesterday's peeks, can't wait to see what the Baker's Dozen—Taylor VanBruggen, Alex Maldonado, Charmaine Ikach, Donna Baker, Jackie Pedro, Jodi Collins, Karen Giron, Karen Motz, Laurie Schmidlin, Melissa Sauls, Sankari Wegman and Guest Designer Jeanie Witmer—have to share with us today.

Thanks so much for visiting! I'd love to hear from you...
