Your Gift

Here's another card made with a brand new stamp set from The Cat's Pajamas. This one is called "Your Gift"; I paper-pieced the tree and stamped the stars (also part of the set) around in silver. A little matting, a little ribbon, and voila! Have a super Sunday :)

What a great view...

Here's what I saw out of my window this afternoon :)

A Warm Hello

Woo hoo! A 5-day weekend! Just what I need right now :) I hope you are going to get some kind of a break this Thanksgiving and that you are able to spend it with your favorite people! I'll be spending the holiday here with Nattie and Jamie (plus pets, of course!).
Today's card is another one using The Cat's Pajamas' new stamps - this one is called "You Suit Me". The loopy die at the left-hand side is also from TCP; it's called "Icing". I found this fun paper set at Hobby Lobby last weekend; the color combo just jumped out at me!

It's a Holiday Hop!

Hello everyone - welcome to The Cat's Pajamas' blog hop showcasing TCP's brand new stamps and dies! I have the pleasure of using the "Big Bear" set - isn't this guy just perfect?? You should be joining me from Carole's blog; if you'd like to start from the beginning of the hop (and I highly recommend it!), jump over to Jen's blog to see all the creative goodness :) And don't forget it's also TCP Tuesday! We were challenged by Jen to use our TCP dies to make an embellishment, so I used the brand new Snowflake die to embellish my border - and I added some silver Stickles for extra sparkle :)
Now it's time for you to visit Tracy...happy hopping!

TCP Tuesday 135 AND More Sneak Peeks!

Happy Tuesday! This week I'm your hostess for our Inspiration Challenge - I found this fun chair at Target (one of my favorite stores!) and thought it might inspire some TCP love :) Over on Alma's blog you can find all the details on how to play along and show us all what you came up with through her slideshow. You'll also find the links there to the rest of today's Sneak Peeks!

For my card I used the chair pattern as my starting point to show off the brand new "Big Bear" versatile is this one??? There are endless possibilities for stamping, paper-piecing, get the idea :) Now go grab a seat (ha ha!) and get creating! We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Sketch Challenge - TCPTUES134

Hello all, this week the fabulous Alma is hosting a Sketch Challenge for us! And it's a fun one :) I'm taking the opportunity to show you another brand new stamp that will be released in the next couple of weeks - this one is called "Merry Wishes"... I found my Liquid Applique and was able to add "fur trim" to the little girl's hat. Lots of paper piecing possibilities with this set, too!! Have fun playing along!
