Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge

Today I needed to make a sympathy card for a friend who lost their mother last night. I decided to use the sketch provided by Taylored Expressions for their Cupcake Challenge #61.

Here is Taylor's sketch:

Here is my card:

I used my K&Co "Ancestry" papers again - LOVE them! The sentiment is printed off my computer. Our Daily Bread Designs has a new stamp set which includes this sentiment, and I'm planning on getting it sometime in the near future. But since I needed something for this card now, so I decided I would just print it for now.

Alzheimer's Assoc Fund Drive w/Jen Tapler

As I was checking out some of the blogs I've been following, I came accross the perfect way to put this card that I made a few weeks ago to good use!

Jen Tapler is asking all talented card crafters out there to help in her efforts to raise money for a cause that is very close to her heart; her dad is suffering from Alzheimer's disease. Jen is collecting donated cards which she will be selling on-line and she will be donating the procedes to the Alzheimer's Association. All who participate are entered in a drawing for blog candy worth over $250!! Will you help, too???

For more details on how to participate in this worthy cause, and be entered in the drawing for some yummy candy, check out Jen's blog:
