TCP Tuesdays!!

Here we go!! Alma and the DT ladies over at The Cat's Pajamas have come up with a new Weekly Challenge for those of you who'd like to play :)

Every Tuesday, one of us (myself, Katie, Leigh, or Carole) will post the details of a new challenge on our blog. The challenge will run all week long and each week's challenge will vary.

It's my turn first - and the first challenge is a COLOR CHALLENGE. I want you to make any kind of card/scrapbook page/project that you'd like - but the colors should be the TCP colors: hot pink, yellow, black and white. And of course TCP stamps are preferred wherever possible - we want to see what you can do with those babies!

To share your work, post a comment by the end of Saturday and leave a link to your fabulous creations! For those of you who like to post on Splitcoast Stampers, be sure to use the keywork TCPTUES01 so that we can find your pieces!

Alma will showcase all the pieces on Monday...and a new challenge will start again next Tuesday!! Oh - and did I mention that there will be PRIZES each month???? Yep! Check out Alma's blog for all the details on how you can become the first Swanky Stamper!

The stamps on my card are "Knitting Kitty" and "So Much Yarn" :)

ENJOY the challenge!! And don't forget to stop by the other DT members' blogs (listed on the right-hand side of my blog) to see their amazing work :)

Fantastic color choice for the first TCP Tuesday, Toni! And I love that knitting Sprinkle and ribbon -- too cute!

Lynn April 1, 2008 at 2:44 PM  

Oh my goodness! That card is just wonderful! Love the colors and that stamp is out of this world. I'm still in my rut, but I'll see about joining in on this challenge. Sounds like great fun.

Toni, I received your wonderful, terrific card! I thought I emailed you saying "thank you", but obviously did not. My mind is not with me at all lately. I'm feeling a little better with each passing day. I hope everything continues to go that path for the next few weeks.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Awesome color combo, I´ll try to whip something up until I get my stamps!

Carla April 1, 2008 at 3:52 PM  

This card is SO great! I love the wide ribbon, and the great job you did on the cat's shadow. I don't have any TCP stamps yet, but I think they are super, and I sure will enjoy seeing what people come up with! This is a terrific challenge.

Great challenge!

While browsing your cards I wondered "what does she do with all of them?"

You must have an amazing stash of the coolest cards!

What a fun challenge! You are always up to something creative, Toni! I'm amazed at your productivity!!!

Left a little something today for you on my blog... :-)

Janet April 3, 2008 at 2:14 PM  

I posted my entry onto Splitcoast stampers, but for some reason it is not showing up under TCPTUES01 even though I put that in for my keyword. It is showing up in my gallery which is under JSisk. I am also posting it on my blog.
Thanks for the opportunity to play.

Giovana April 3, 2008 at 4:15 PM  

I don't own any of the Cat's Pajamas but I wanted to play anyway.
This is my card:

I hope you like my card
God bless you

Allright Toni! It was your challenge that managed to get my butt in my stamping area to create something...and boy did it feel good. Just what the doctor ordered!

And I have to say, I NEED knitting kitty now! Your card absolutely R-O-C-K-S!

Here is my contribution!

Littleone's Scrapbook Journal April 5, 2008 at 7:04 PM  

Here is my entry :) I don't have any TCP stamps yet :( My sister said she would buy me some for my b-day in May :) Thanks for a great challenge!!


Angela (monkeymama) April 5, 2008 at 9:45 PM  

Toni, I just uploaded my card to SCS under the code of TCPTUES01. It is 10:41 p.m. here, so I hope I still qualify for the Saturday deadline (not sure of your timezone?). This is the first challenge I've ever done and it was fun; though I don't think I should have waited until Saturday night to try!!! Can't wait to see everyone's work on Monday! Angela
