Happy Friday! All of us at TE love to see what y'all create with the SASI and Whimsical Wishes stamp sets! It just makes us giddy to see what you can do with rubber and ink! Please be sure to use keyword tayloredexpressions (no space) or SASI anytime you upload your creations to an on-line gallery such as SCS or PCP, so we don't miss a thing!

This week while gallery surfing we found Our Friday Friend when this adorable sweet shop card caught our attention! Meet Jessica Diedrich (pinkgirl76 on SCS). Jessica created another fabulous card to share here with you today (click on it to view it larger)! This one features Fresh Flowers. We know you are going to enjoy getting to know Jessica just as much as we have. :)
--What city/state do you live in?

Cary, IL

--How did you become addicted to papercrafts? How long have you been stamping?

I have been stamping for about 5 years now and I just can't get enough! It all started when a friend and fellow pre-school mom had a little get together in the form of a Stampin' Up! party. I picked up my first rubber stamp that night and I think I've had one in my hand ever since! The best part is since then, I've met so many friends and wonderful women through this craft and I look forward to creating and chatting with them for years to come!

--How would you describe your style? What are you favorite projects to create?

Girly. LOL. I'm addicted to "pretty things" like flowers, pearls, rhinestones...the list goes on! I love creating cards, mostly, with lots of embellishments most of the time. Anything pretty that catches my eye usually finds it's way home!

--Do you have a favorite TE image?

That is a tough one, but as a single image, I really love the window from the new Fresh Flowers set. It's so pretty and soft looking and I love seeing what people add to it, whether it be a flower box underneath or in the window itself. As a whole set, I am really loving the new Downtown Diva set. The possibilities of coloring the little storefronts, etc. really excites me and I can't wait to stamp more with it!!

--What is your favorite sweet treat?

I'm a cupcake girl, too, I must admit. Red Velvet with Cream Cheese frosting. My favorite cupcake bakery is simply called, "Cupcake" in Charleston, SC. Dangerous place to walk into LOL!!!
For more of Jessica's yummy card creations you'll want to visit her blog The Whimsical Butterfly.
Thank you Jessica for being Our Friday Friend!
And how about you - would you like to be Our Friday Friend?

No contest to enter for this. Each week we will scour the Taylored Expressions Company Gallery at SCS for recent uploads (within the past 10 days) in search of a SASI Stamper to be featured on this blog. To be considered all you have to do is:

**Create something (card, 3D item, scrapbook page, anything) using one or more images from any SASI or Whimsical Wishes stamp set. Your creation should showcase SASI or WW, but does not have to be exclusive to SASI.
**Upload your creation to SCS being sure to use the keyword SASI or tayloredexpressions (no space) so it will appear in the Taylored Expressions Company Gallery (which is driven by a keyword search) and complete the recipe section of the upload.

Super simple - pretty much just have fun stamping and upload what you make so we can see it! If you are chosen, we will send you an e-mail or PM asking if you'd like to be featured and requesting permission to post one or more of your creations here as Our Friday Friend. You will have the choice of creating something new or just allowing us to post a pic already in your gallery. We will include a link to your SCS Member Gallery and to your blog if you have one (note: a blog is not required to qualify for this feature.)
Have a fantastic stamping weekend. In fact, you can hop over to Taylor's blog to play in her weekly sketch the TECC!
