Taylored Expressions - Blast From the Past

Hey everyone! Nope, still no real internet. I'm posting from Starbucks again. Thank goodness for Starbucks! And coffee!! Don't know what I'd do without them. When I get all hooked up again, I'll tell you guys the "wonderful" story of Comcast and how much they suck.

Anyway, today is Taylored Expressions' Blast From the Past Blog Hop - and I almost forgot about it!! Fortunately, I was up here at Starbucks yesterday and caught the email about it, so here I am, thumb drive in hand, posting away. By the way, I am a serious dweeb. I read "8am" go live. I have been in such a hurry with my internet time that I didn't read closely - and missed "Pacific time." Anyone else hearing Homer Simpson saying "Doh!" in their heads?

I, of course, also forgot about the sketch, and since I can't check email at home, I hope you will all forgive me for that. I'll probably make another card this evening - just for fun. But checking out the other participants, I'm seeing some uber cute cards using it, so I'm definitely going to have to hop to it!

I CASE'd a card by Melanie Muenchinger that was in the May Cardmaker magazine. I finally got to ink up Berries & Cherries, which I think is just about the sweetest set. C'mon, strawberries and chocolate in the same set? How can you not like that?? Throw in a little bit of Basic Grey's Nook & Pantry dp and voila! Une carte de voeux.


Check out the rest of the hop...and enjoy!
