Today is Halloween, and I have a "treat" for you! It's the first day of Release Week for Taylored Expressions and I am so thankful for all the fun I have had being a part of the Baker's Dozen. My project today features Labels of Love II -- the first in this series is one of my all-time favorites and I was so excited to see another from Taylor herself! I made a card to show how I feel about each and every one of my DT teammates.
The perfect sentiment fit inside one of the seven included frames and I strung some happy orange ribbon through. I paired it with bright, colorful patterned paper and stitched a fun border across one of the panels. Do you see those cool die-cut leaves? Those are made from 3 of 4 of the soon-to-be-released Mini Leaves Taylored Dies! I just love autumn -- it's the perfect time to sit back and take stock of everything that makes our lives so much better.
Labels of Love II is a fitting new addition to Taylor's Giving Tree program. The TE Giving Tree is a program designed to raise funds for a different charity each quarter.  For the months of November, December and January, Taylored Expressions will donate $5 from the sale of each Labels of Love II stamp set to the Union Rescue Mission. Visit the Union Rescue Mission website at
In part the URM's Mission Statement reads:
We embrace people experiencing homelessness with the compassion of Christ – giving hope and healing for a changed life – helping them find their way home.
