Today we're introducing a new TE Giving Tree set, Labels of Love II!  This is a follow-up set to the popular Labels of Love.  This set covers just about every holiday throughout the year!  It contains 27 sentiments/images and coordinates with the Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio 3.  It was designed and illustrated by Taylor for the *te* line of stamps. 

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. 

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.

By Embrace we mean to welcome, to encircle with our arms.
By Compassion we mean to love and touch others, as Christ loved us.
By Hope we mean providing encouragement and resources for a new start.
By Healing we mean being restored in body, mind, and spirit through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
By Changed Life we mean going in a new direction and to realize our God-given purpose.
By Home we mean having the opportunity to earn a living, secure housing, and be a healthy family again.
The Union Rescue Mission (URM) was founded in 1891 and is one of the largest missions of its kind in America--bringing help and hope to men, women, and children experiencing homelessness in Downtown Los Angeles. Taylor's husband, Jon, served at the Union Rescue Mission when they lived in California and saw first hand the impact it had on the lives of the homeless.  Visit the Union Rescue Mission website at

The card I created uses the Sweet on You sentiment from the set.  I paired it up with the Build a Treat Border Dies.  I used the Build a Treat Borders set to stamp the cones, but the "tops" were just die cut and then covered in Stardust Stickles. 

The tag was stamped, die cut and threaded with ribbon.  I then stamped the sentiment within the smaller frame and cut that out by hand and attached it on top of the first tag with foam tape. 

I added some Tiny Twinkles for "cherries" on top of some of the sweets.  Be sure to visit the rest of the Baker's Dozen for more peeks of what we're introducing today!  Stop back again tomorrow for more!
