A TCP Tuesday Challenge...Just For You!

 
Happy Tuesday, Friends!  I hope that you had a wonderful weekend.  My boys took me to a John Pizzarelli concert for Mother's Day!  What a delightful evening!  We even had front row seats!!!  I am running a little bit behind on this week's challenge, but here it is...finally!  This week's challenge is called, "Anything Goes".  I continued my love affair with TCP's long eared bunny and made a card that I can use for just about any occasion.
 
 
I started with the bunny from the TCP Kick Some Grass set.  I used Copic Markers (BG000, E34, E35, R20, R22, R35, R37, R39, and YG17) for the coloring and the sentiment is from the Bearing Flowers set.  The patterned papers are from the Beautiful Life collection from Echo Park Papers.  I tripled up some Linen Button Twine and added a button from my stash to finish my card.
 
I hope that you'll have the chance to play along.  Here are all of the details for the TCP Tuesday Challenge...
 
1. Every other Tuesday a new challenge will be posted on The Cat's Pajamas blog as well as on our Splitcoaststampers forum and our Facebook page.
 
2. If you want to play along you just upload your design The Cat's Pajamas blog page using the InLinkz button below. If you want to display your pretties on Splitcoaststampers use keyword TCPTUES266. Only the entries uploaded to the Inlinkz button will be considered for Swanky Stamper at the end of the month.

3. You must have your project posted by the Monday, 12 midnight EDT before the next challenge to be eligible to win the Cat Cash.

4. Cards and projects are not required to use a Cat’s Pajamas Stamp or CutUps dies, but if you do, the Cat Cash amount increases.

5. On the following TCP Tuesday, the week's winner will be chosen from the previous challenge and will receive a Cat Cash Voucher for $10.00 or $15 if a TCP product is used.

6. At the end of the month, The Swanky Stamper will be selected from all the weekly entries. The Swanky Stamper will receive some of the stamps from our next release and get to play along with us at our Pajamas Party and Blog Hop. AND… They’ll even get a special spot in the Gallery highlighting the project that won them the gig and a snazzy badge to display on their blog.

7. The Swanky Stamper will be announced the First Monday of the month on Splitcoaststampers, Facebook page and The Cat's Pajamas blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit.  Until next time...Toodles!  :D
 
 
 

    

Missing You!

 
Happy Tuesday, Friends!  I hope that you enjoyed your weekend.  We have less than forty days of school left and things are quite busy.  It has been a wonderful year and time is flying by!  My little First Graders will be heading up to the big elementary school in town and I will not get to see them everyday any more...{insert sad face}!!  I will truly miss this bunch.  They are delightful little learners!  We have a lot fun things planned and some not so fun things (a few standardized tests) before this school year is finished.  For now, I am going to enjoy my time with them and then there will be a whole new bunch to teach when the start of school rolls around again. 
 
You didn't stop by to listen to all of my ramblings about school.  I'm sure you are stopping in for a peek at this week's TCP Tuesday Challenge.  Am I right?  Well, this time around, we have a color challenge for you.  You will have two weeks to play along in this challenge and if the luck of the Irish is with you, you'll have a chance to win some Cat's Cash in The Cat's Pajamas online store.  You could even be Swanky Stamper of the Month and enjoy all of the perks that go along with it.  I hope that you'll be able to take some time and play along.  You can get all of the details over at The Cat's Pajamas blog.  The link is HERE, and here is a peek at the colors for the challenge.     
 
 
I started off with this sweet image and sentiment from the Hare Today set from The Cat's Pajamas.  My little friend is colored up with Copic Markers (B97, B99, BG000, BG01, E40, E41, E42, R81, R83, and the Colorless Blender).  The Melon color is on my bunny's nose and the patterned paper from the Beautiful Life collection from Echo Park.  I colored up his umbrella to match my Dark Blue background and card base.  I used the Dots CutUps for my background.  The Sky Blue color can be found in the Chevron patterned paper (So Happy collection from Echo Park) and the button with the TCP Linen Button Twine.  Here's a peek at my card.
 
 
Thank you so much for visiting with me today.  Until next time...Toodles!  :D
 
    

Hello, again!

 
I do hope that you all remember me!  I know that it has been quite some time.  Life has gotten in the way of my stamping fun lately, but I am back today with a card for this round of TCP Tuesday Challenges.  Just in case you haven't heard, Our TCP Tuesday Challenges are every other Tuesday now.  That means you have two whole weeks to get your challenge done!!  It also gives you the chance to win a little Cat's Cash to spend over at the TCP Website and a chance to be Swanky Stamper of the Month.  Please head over to Alma's Blog for all of the details!  You will also want to check out Alma's newest creation CUTABLES!!  If you have a Silhouette or other cutting machine, you'll LOVE this!
 
 
This week's challenge is a wonderful sketch from Nancy.  I love all of the different shapes and layers!  One of my best friends just had a new baby girl (she already has three darling, little boys!!!) and I hope to have the chance to meet her next week.  This card will go along with her gift.  Here's a peek of the sketch. 
 
I started off with our long eared friend from the Bloom set from The Cat's Pajamas.  He is colored up with Copic Markers (BG000, E33, E34, E35, R20, R35, R46, YG17, YR20, YR21, and the Colorless Blender).  The papers are some oldies but goodies from DCWV.  The sentiment is from the And Baby Makes Three set and I added a few crystals to girly it up.  Then I added a few buttons and some Linen Button Twine to finish this one off.  Just right for a new baby girl!
 
 
I do hope that you will have the chance to play along with us over at The Cat's Pajamas!  Thanks so much for visiting with me today.  Have a Happy Tuesday!  Until next time...Toodles!  :D 
    

Spring is in the Air

 
 
Happy Tuesday, Friends!  I hope that you are well.  We are under a blanket of SNOW in this part of New England.  Since the new year began, we have missed five days of school.  In fact, last Friday, we were going to start school two hours late.  Just as we were about to head out the door, we received a telephone call that the buses would not start and school would be cancelled...ugh!  Everything is so pretty with the snow though.  We went to Old Sturbridge Village on Sunday to walk around and go sledding.  It was so much fun!  A great way to spend a winter's day.  Even though we are as the saying goes, "Spring is in the air" and Kelli Jo is the hostess for this week's TCP Tuesday Challenge called Spring Time.  If you play along and upload your creation over on The Cat's Pajamas Blog, you will have a chance to win $10 in Cat Cash and you will also have a chance to be this month's Swanky Stamper of the Month.  You can find all of the details HERE.
 
 
My card is playing double duty today.  Splitcoaststampers is celebrating their Member Companies during their annual Love Fest.  Today is the day to celebrate...THE CAT'S PAJAMAS!!!  Your challenge is to use the photograph above as inspiration to create a project.  It goes perfectly with Kelli's Spring Time challenge too.  This is what I came up with.
 
 
I was really inspired by the colors in the photographs and I was able to keep with the birdhouse and springtime theme.  The papers are from Simple Stories (pink) and My Mind's Eye (green stripe).  I used the TCP Apron Border CutUps because the loops reminded me of the intricate iron work on the gate.  I also used the Framed Up CutUps and the Home Tweet Home CutUps.  The tree branch (colored up with Copic Markers E23 and YG 25) is from the TCP The Tweetest Things set and the sentiment is from the Field of Pinwheels set.  I added a teeny piece of Black Licorice Divine Twine to finish this springtime creation off. 
 
Here are all of the details about the SCS LOVE FEST for you.  I hope that you have lots of fun creating!  Good Luck!
 
 THE CAT'S PAJAMAS LOVEFEST CHALLENGE : We have put together 3 photos for you to use as inspiration for your project (see the photo above). You may be inspired by the color palette, the garden theme, the design elements such as the wrought iron gate, the birdhouses, trees, flowers, by the patterns within the birdhouses, etc. It’s all about what you see in the photos! It is not a requirement to use a TCP stamp or die but if you have them we would love to see them.
There is a $25 gift certificate to The Cat’s Pajamas store up for grabs.

You'll have until Monday, March 3rd at noon Central to share your challenge entries. Upload your creations (they don't have to be cards!) to your Member Gallery and use today's keyword to play along.
We can't wait to see what you do!

  UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS on SCS:

Thanks so much for visiting with me today!  Stay warm and enjoy the snow if you have any!  Until next time...Toodles!  :D
    

It's TCP Tuesday...Happy Birthday, Lisa!

 
Happy Tuesday, Friends!  It is time for another TCP Tuesday Challenge and this time around, Lisa is our wonderful hostess!  She is celebrating her birthday this week, so our challenge is to create something that has an image of a present, candle, or cake.  If you play along and upload your creation over on The Cat's Pajamas Blog, you will have a chance to win $10 in Cat Cash and you will also have a chance to be this month's Swanky Stamper of the Month.  You can find all of the details HERE.  Now, here is my card for this week's challenge.
 

My image and sentiment are from the Bring on the Cake set from The Cat's Pajamas.  A great fit for Lisa challenge.  My long eared friend is colored up with Copic Markers (BG13, C0, C1, C3, R00, R11, R29, R32, R81, R83, R85, Y38 and the Colorless Blender) and then I fussy cut him out.  All of the papers are from the Hazel Collection from My Mind's Eye.  My embellishments include the Buttons CutUps and the Dots CutUps.  To dress up the die cut buttons I used the Linen Button Twine in Ivory from The Cat's Pajamas.
 
I hope that you will be able to play along.  Be sure to stop by and wish Lisa a very Happy Birthday!  Thank you so much for visiting with me today.  Until next time...Toodles!  :D
