Peace on Earth

Hi All! Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday. We had an amazing time with family and friends. There is so much to be thankful for and having your loved ones celebrating with you is one of them. Today we are all praying for my cousin Alejandra who is having brain surgery as we speak. I ask that if you have some time please say a prayer for her. Her story is on this post if you missed it and would like to know. She asked me to thank everyone who sent her cards. They really made her day and put a smile on her face. I am working on a special get well card for her but right now I have a The Cat's Pajamas card to share. I used my new "Penguin Christmas" set for this card. I adore this little penguin! Isn't he the cutest?! The best part is that he and all stamps at TCP are 25% off!! Make sure to check out the awesome deals going on. I colored everything in with my Copics and sponged the outside with ink. I added some Zva Creative brads that mimic the patterned paper. I think the complete the card perfectly. Well, that's all I have for today. Make sure to check back on Monday for some more holiday stamping.

TCP Tuesday

Hi All! So, it's time for another super fun TCP Tuesday. This week's challenge is so fun. The super talented Amy wants us to emboss today. I am so glad she is asking that we pull out our embossing tools because I haven't used them in forever. I decided to use my Swiss Dots cuttlebug embossing folder for this card. I used the super fun "Make Merry" and "Coolvetica" alpha. I really like how the background came out with the stamped new year numbers. To complete everything I added some super fabulous SEI ribbon and Zva Creative rhinestones. Well, that's all for today but I have another Christmas card to share tomorrow. FYI The Cat's Pajamas is having a Gobble Sale on November 26th-30th. All internet orders get 25% off! Woot!! Check out the site for all the details.

Snow Days

How about another card featuring the newly released The Cat's Pajamas sets?! I am having so much fun with these stamps and supplies. I decided to use the super cute skating penguins for this card. I colored them in with my Copics and then sprinkled some TCP clear chunky glitter to resemble ice. I think this glitter is amazing!! I also added some silver for a little more sparkle. I love how it turned out. To complete the card I added my sentiment along with a satin bow. Well, that's all for today but I have a few more TCP cards up my sleeve. Don't forget to check out all these new stamps sets over at the TCP site.

TCP Blog Hop!

Hi All!! I am so excited about today's The Cat's Pajamas blog hop! TCP is releasing 5 new sets tomorrow! They are seriously AMAZING. So, to celebrate the release, Alma has organized a super fun blog hop. If you want to start from the beginning then head over to Susan's Blog. The set I am featuring today is called "Give A Little" along with some new accessories that will also be available. The buttons are called Vintage Holiday and the glitter is Holiday Glitzy. I paper pieced the teddy bears tummy and added some glitter on the hat. To complete the card I added some buttons and tied some twill. I love the vintage feel of this card. Well, that's all I have for today. Your next stop is the fabulously talented Julee. I can't wait to see what she has in store for us. Happy Blog Hopping!!
