Christmas Cheer

Now that Thanksgiving is over, I am ready to get in the Christmas spirit! We put up our Christmas tree and decorations. I am getting so excited! I absolutely love this time of year. I am also ready to start mailing out my Christmas cards. I always leave it for the last minute but not this year. I am having so much fun with my new The Cat's Pajamas stamps that I have almost all my cards done. For this card I used the super adorable set called You Suit Me. Isn't she adorable?! I colored her in with Copics and added some fun 3d snowflake stickers. I also pulled out my new Big Scallop Border CutUp die. Well, that's all for me today but make sure to check back for more holiday cards. I have tons to share with you!

TCP Release Day!

Finally, all the new The Cat's Pajamas stamp sets and CutUps are now available online! So, what do you guys think?! Aren't they amazing?! So, to celebrate the release we are having a fun TCP blog hop. The blog hop happens to coincide with TCP Tuesday so expect a fun hop. If you are coming from Lori's blog then you're in the right place. This week's hostess with the mostess is the ubberly talented Jen . She is also the first stop in the blog hop. Jen, has her creative juices flowing and is challenging us to make our own embellishments with die cuts. How fun is that? So, I decided to play along with the new TCP CutUp snowflake. I jazzed it up with some punches and buttons. I found these cute snowflake buttons in the TCP Vintage Holiday button collection. I love how it adds an extra layer to the already cute CutUp. Well, that's all for my stop of the hop but make sure you head on over to Carole's blog for another fun card. I can't wait to see what she has. Also, don't forget about the awesome free shipping deal going on at TCP. It's just another reason to get your hands on all the new stamps and CutUps!

TCP Sneaky Peek Day 8

It's getting so close I can taste it!! I'm so excited for you guys because I know you are going to fall in love with all The Cat's Pajamas stamps and CutUps that will be released on November 23. Before I get into the stamping I wanted to let you know about an awesome special going on at TCP. Yup, you read right free shipping for almost a whole week! So, now that you know about that amazing deal let's get to the card. Today, we are featuring the set called Your Gift. I think it's so whimsical and cute. I paper pieced the tree and added some glittery present stickers and Zva Creative rhinestones to complete the card. I tried to go for a whimsical vintage feel. Well, that's all for me today but make sure you head on over to Sony, Susan, and Joanne's blogs. They have some more sneak peeks to share.

TCP Sneak Peek Day 6

It's day six of our TCP sneak peeks and we are getting closer and closer to the release day! How exciting! Today, we are featuring another adorable set called "Jingle Bells". The set has the cutest little girl who is all bundled up in her scarf. I had so much fun coloring her. I also used another new CutUp die that will be released on Tuesday, November 23. I love the swirly border. I know this will be on lots of my cards from now on. The layout was last weeks TCP sketch challenge. I loved the sketch when I saw it but didn't have a chance to play last week so I saved it and made a card with it today! Well, that's all for me today but make sure to check out Tracy and Amy's blog for more "Jingle Bells" eye candy. Also , don't forget to join us at the SCS release party. Check out the forum of Alma's blog for all the details. Have a great weekend.

TCP Sneak Peek Week!

So, I'm sure everyone is enjoying all the TCP sneak peeks going on this week. If you don't already know The Cat's Pajamas is releasing some awesome new sets and CutUps on Tuesday, November 23. You guys are going to love them. Today, I am featuring the stamp set called 'Merry Wishes". Isn't she adorable?! I paper pieced her dress. The snowflake is a one of the new CutUps. I love it! I decided to hang some little glove punches from the flake. I think it brought the whole card together. I decided to use this patterned paper from My Minds Eye for this week's TCP Tuesday inspiration challenge. I took the lined circle patterned as my inspiration. This week's hostess is the amazing Toni Armstrong! The layout is from Jen's SFYTT. It was so much fun. Well, that's all for me today but make sure you hop on over to Susan and Joanne's blogs. They are also showing some sneak peeks today. Also, make sure to check out Alma's blog and the SCS forum for all the release party details.

TCP Tuesday

Whew! I know I'm a little late but I am going on four weeks of being sick and everything has been sluggish lately! I can't seem to shake this cold and nagging cough. If anyone has any suggestion on cough medicine that actually works please share. I've been taking Delsym but it doesn't really take the cough away at night. I just want a good nights sleep. Well, enough complaining let's get to my card. This week's TCP Tuesday is all about the girls! How fun is that? Susie which is our hostess this week wants us to use a female image. I decided to use my "Who's This" stamp set. Don't you just love that little owl? I colored everything in with my Copics and added some 3D leave stickers to complete my Fall card. This is my favorite season so I really enjoyed making it. Well, that's all for me today but make sure to check out the other Cat Pack's blogs for more eye candy. Don't forget to upload your TCP Tuesday card on Alma's blog for a chance to win Swanky Stamper of the Month along with some cash.
