TCP Tuesday - Blog Surf!

Hi all!! We're very excited about TCP Tuesday this week - not only do we have our usual Inspiration Challenge (Leigh is hosting for me this week), but the whole team is participating in a "Blog Surf" (surfing since it's summer!) to show off the new stamp sets being released by The Cat's Pajamas tomorrow, July 22nd. The sets are called "Fun in the Sun", "By the Sea" and "You Sick Thing".

You should be joining me from Leigh's blog - that's where the Surfing starts (and where you'll find the details for the Inspiration Challenge) :)
For my card I used the "By the Sea" set with some patterned paper by "Cosmo Cricket". The embellishments are also new from TCP: matching ribbon and buttons!

I hope you like what you've seen so far - now surf on over to Jen's blog for more inspiration! And don't forget to follow the surf all the way to the end (and post a comment on each blog) for the chance to WIN some TCP goodies! Enjoy :)
