Taylored Expressions Sneak Peek - You're My Hero

Wooohoo!!! What a way to start a blog posting! I'm just so excited that we're coming up on another Taylored Expressions release! Today, I've got a ROCKIN' sneak for you that I think you're just gonna love! Let me first say some very important words about this set though!

This set is the latest set in the Taylored Expressions Giving Tree Program. Now, if you aren't familiar with how this works, let me give a quick explanation! Each quarter, a stamp set is created with a certain charity in mind and partial proceeds from the sale of the set are sent directly to the charity! I just LOOOOVE this! Taylor always picks such wonderful charities to donate to and this quarter's is no exception. You're My Hero is such set and it was created with tweens and teens in mind...and for all of us rockers too! (I know I LOVE to get my groove on to Guitar Hero, LOL) This set was created in honor of Darrin Zimmerman, Taylor's 10 yr old neighbor that passed away from cancer last fall and $7 from the sale of each set sold will be going to CureSearch. From CureSearch's website, "CureSearch unites the world's largest childhood cancer research organization, the Children's Oncology Group, and the National Childhood Cancer Foundation through their mission to cure childhood cancer. Research is the key to the cure."

I absolutely hate childhood cancer....and surely you know someone, or know of someone that has been affected by it. I so hope that you will consider this in the purchase of the set! This set will need to be trimmed, but it is still that good ole' deeply etched rubber on EZ mount.

Ok, how about some sneaks for now? I need to see some pretty pictures before the tears start flowin'!

This is my boy rocker card and it uses the set (with soooooo many fun images) as well as the Rock Star Key Ingredients. I'm telling you, I LOVE how Taylor always pairs a set with such GREAT papers and embellishments....thanks for taking half the work out of the card!

And you can't have a boy rocker without a......... girl rocker!

Just in case you're wondering...YES! I used the SAME Rock Star Key Ingredients here! Cool how you can make them useful for both genders, yes?? :)

Ok, I made a quick little Clean and Simple card as well...just a little something to sneak one more image. :)

My sentiment is inside and I'll keep it under wraps so you can see the full set when you order Friday morning at 8 PST! :)

Let's go and check out what the rest of the Baker's Dozen has sneaked peeked for you! Oh yeah, did you see there are two new members to the Baker's Dozen??? I'm THRILLED to have them join the team, yet also sad to see two of us leave. Check out Taylor's post here and welcome them!
