TCP Sneak Peeks & Blog Candy!!

I am so excited to be able to start showing you my The Cat's Pajamas sneak peeks! I simply ADORE the new birthday stamps Alma has come up with. The first peek I have for you today features a cute little penguin holding his balloon. Isn't he cute? This set also comes with numbers 0-9 so you can customize your cards to fit the birthday boy or girl. In this case I made a birthday card for my nephew that turned 4. I used Basic Grey "Cupcake" patterned paper and colored everything in with my Copics. I also picked some buttons to embellish my card. I think it adds a playful element. To complete the card I did some paper piercing under the swirly sentiment and added a star pin from Fancy Pants.

Now let's get to the good part! Alma has generously donated a giveaway set to all the Design Team members. Whoot Whoot!! So I am offering mine up today. The set is called "You Say It's Your Birthday" and all you have to do to enter is leave me a comment letting me know what your favorite birthday cake flavor is. I love white cake with chocolate frosting!! Yummo! You will have until Thursday night 12:00am. Good luck!!

What a cute card! I am sadly lacking when it comes to kid stamp sets.

My favorite cake is Red Velvet cake (from scratch, not from a box or from a store bakery, blech!) and the frosting has to be Fluffy White Frosty not cream cheese frosting (I like cream cheese frosting but definitely not on Red Velvet cake). I have made it myself a few times but it is never as good as my mom used to make.
