TCP Tuesday Challenge

Hello again, Friends!  I told you that I'd be back today and here I am.  There are a few days left in the month to join us for this month's challenge from The Cat's Pajamas.  The challenge this time around is "The More the Merrier".  For more details, please head on over to Alma's Blog
I started off with Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.  There were many layers to the sketch so I thought that it would be a good fit for this challenge.  My delightful image and sentiment are from the Birthday Bunny set from The Cat's Pajamas.  My floppy eared friend is colored up with Copic Markers (B06, BG01, BG53, E50, E53, YG13, YG17, YR20, and YR21) and then I fussy cut him out.  All of the patterned papers are from Pebbles.  My other accents include the TCP Flower Button CutUps, the TCP Queen of Hearts CutUps, and some TCP Aqua Seam Binding. 

Thanks so much for visiting with me.  We are having a heat wave here in New England...so stay cool everyone!  Until next time...Toodles!  :D

You Are So Polished!

Happy Monday, Friends!  Hope that you are doing well.  I was lucky enough to squeeze in a little stamping time this weekend.  The daughter of one of my co-workers is celebrating her birthday and she LOVES nail polish.  As soon as I found that out, I knew exactly which stamp to use for her birthday card.  I haven't had the chance to play with the sketch from the My Favorite Things Wednesday Stamp Club in quite awhile, so I started there.  Then I grabbed my Polished to Perfection set from My Favorite Things.  My nail polishing gal is colored up with Copic Markers (BG10, BG11, C0, C1, C5, C7, C9, E000, E00, E01, E23, E25, R20, R27, R59, and Y26) and then I fussy cut her out.  She is layered onto a die cut made with the Die-namics Oval Open Scallop Doily die.  All of the patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye.  The other accents include a button with some TCP Cherry Divine Twine and some wide grosgrain ribbon. 
Thanks so much for visiting with me today.  I'll be back tomorrow with my card for this month's TCP Tuesday Challenge.  See you then...Toodles!  :D

Miles Above the Rest!

Happy Tuesday, Friends!!  I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend.  The weather is starting to perk up here in New England and it is beginning to feel more like summer.  Six more days of school and then summer will really be here!!  (Not that this teacher is counting or anything...lol!)
My card today is for this month's TCP Tuesday Challenge.  Last month's challenge was to keep things on the simple side and this month's challenge is the more the merrier!  This is the card that I gave to my Dad for Father's Day.  I had a ball creating it and adding lots of TCP CutUps. 
I started off with my bunny friend from the Oh Chute set.  He is colored up with Copic Markers (BG000, BG53, E11, E13, E15, R20, R22, and W0) and I paper pieced his parachute.  All of the patterned papers are from October Afternoon.  My CutUps include the new Luggage Tags dies, the Icing die, the Cloud Border die, and the Buttons die.  My other accents include some TCP Cream Seam B
