Sneaky Peek #5

Welcome to Day Five of Sneak Peeks for the upcoming release from The Cat's Pajamas!  There are seven new stamp sets and three new CutUps dies that will be released on Tuesday, August 27th!!!  The Pajama Party for the new release will be Monday, August 26th from 8-10 pm EST (5-7 pm PST) over at Splitcoaststampers.  Also, if you're IN IT TO WIN IT, visit the TCP Splitcoaststampers forum and leave us some love on the IN IT TO WIN IT thread each day for the chance to win some TCP goodies.  You will want to head on over to Alma's blog to see the list of Cat Packers and Swanky Stampers that will be sharing peeks each day too.
 
Swanky Stamper of the Month, Joyce Casaldi is hosting a fancy, smancy BINGO game for the upcoming new release.  Please head on over to the TCP Forum on Splitcoaststampers to play along.  It's going to be great!  HERE is the link.
 
 
My card is a rather simple design, but I am still thrilled with the way that it turned out.  My Mom has been having health issues all month long.  As soon as we get one thing straightened out, another problem surfaces.  I hope that this card will make her feel a little bit better.  It highlights just a few of the wonderful stamps from the soon to be released set, At Your Service from The Cat's Pajamas.  I colored up the sweet image with Copic Markers (BG000, C2, C3, E21, E23, E25, E27, YR16, YR18, YR20, YR21 and the Colorless Blender) and then I fussy cut her out.  All of the papers are from My Mind's Eye and I used just a few black pearls and some machine stitching for the accents. 
 
My first thought for this set was all of the different tags that you could make with it.  The tags could be attached to presents, or even a container of homemade soup.  It is still quite summery here in New England, and I know that soup is the furthest thing from my Mom's mind right now, so I went with the card.  Here is a peek at the entire set. 

 
I hope that you enjoying all of the sneak peeks.  Have a lovely weekend, and I'll "see" you over at the pajama party on Monday!  Until then...Toodles!  :D

I hope your mom is feeling better soon and I'm sure this beautiful card must have brought a smile to her face. I love the layering, the stitching and brads, along with, of course the sweetest little bear. Thanks for sharing and have a great day! :-)

I'm in love with how you colored this bear and gave her so much texture. This is a great card for both men and women. I hope your mom is on the mend
