It's a party and you're invited!!!

Come celebrate with Taylored Expressions for Cuppie's 1st birthday on September 5th!

Yep - it's been almost a whole year since TE debuted the first three stamp sets. On Saturday, September 5th, Taylored Expressions will be celebrating Cuppie's 1st birthday with the Taylored Expressions Birthday Bash and it wouldn't be a party without you! We have an exciting day planned so I hope you can join us!

At 8am PST Taylored Expressions will release four new stamp sets along with two new Key Ingredients. Minutes after that we'll begin a day of TEBB Challenges to be posted on the Stamp A Sweet Impression Blog every hour throughout the day, hosted by the Baker's Dozen Design Team.

Prizes, prizes and more prizes: one lucky winner will be selected for each challenge to receive a $10 Gift Certificate from Taylored Expressions as well as the sample created by your Challenge Hostess.
Grand Prize: as if that weren't enough - anyone ambitious and creative enough to play in ALL 13 Challenges will be entered into a drawing for the Grand Prize of a $25 TE Gift Certificate along with...are you ready for this?...seriously I hope you're sitting down...along with a custom painting by our favourite Cuppie artist Jessie Olsen!!! Wow!!!
Time Limit: we want to give you plenty of time to play. What a great way to spend a 3 day holiday weekend, right? All entries will be due by Wednesday, September 9th at midnight PST. Winners will be announced on Friday, September 11th.

You may combine challenges any way you like and you are NOT required to use Taylored Expressions stamps in your creations.

We want to get started with prizes right away, so we have an opportunity for you to enter a drawing this week by helping us to invite more party guests. Simply post our Birthday Bash Blinkie on your blog (either on the sidebar or in a post) anytime this week inviting your readers to the SASI blog to play in the Birthday Bash. Once you've posted the Blinkie, head over to the SASI blog and leave a comment on this post with a link back to your blog. Your comment on the SASI blog post will enter you into a drawing for ONE of the four new release stamp sets - your choice! The winner will be announced on the SASI blog on Saturday morning shortly after the release at 8am PST.

To celebrate I just HAD to create a Cuppie card and decided to squeeze in one last summer sail in the few remaining hours of August.
I used Beach Bum and the Mojo Monday sketch #102 for the layout. The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White and coloured with copics. I added turquoise Stickles to the water and layered it onto Prism Classic Purple. Then I ran some Prism Baby Blue Medium through my D'vine Swirls Cuttlebug folder and layered a strip of Intense Kiwi with yellow ribbon. A little red and purple Bling finished it off!

Sneak peeks of the new release sets start on Thursday, September 3rd, then I'll see you at the Birthday Bash on Saturday!!!

Thanks for stopping by!
