TESC110 and CCCB#1 challenges

I think I'm just in time for these 2 challenges. I love the Taylored Expressions blog and challenges, but never played along. Now I heard from Heather on Simply Handmade that there is a new blog with challenges City Crafter Challenge Blog.
Now what I really liked, was that there wasn't any sketch to follow. That I like! Although I did grab a sketch from TESC.
Taylor has these wonderful quirky sketches and video tutorials - which I absolutely love-. Sometimes I just flick on You Tube while crafting and let these tutorials play, even if I don't intend making them. It's nice to see. I must be a sad person...
So here 's my card. Is it a crowd pleaser? Grin.
Supplies: K&Co paper, Plantin Schoolbook: yep, I used that to cut the square background and the little squares, told you I'm a sad person. Well who needs to measure when you've got the Cricut...
Imaginisce cupcake stamp, G Studio sentiment stamp, Copics, Tsukineko ink.
Thanks to Julie Ranae, I am also entering this on The Playdate Cafe. I didn't even know what their challenge was. I have heard of them through Heather's blog before, but never played. I must have been missing something, there is incredible talent around. Thank you all for your kind comments and help - at least I know how to link now.
