Missing You!

Happy Tuesday, Friends!  I hope that you enjoyed your weekend.  We have less than forty days of school left and things are quite busy.  It has been a wonderful year and time is flying by!  My little First Graders will be heading up to the big elementary school in town and I will not get to see them everyday any more...{insert sad face}!!  I will truly miss this bunch.  They are delightful little learners!  We have a lot fun things planned and some not so fun things (a few standardized tests) before this school year is finished.  For now, I am going to enjoy my time with them and then there will be a whole new bunch to teach when the start of school rolls around again. 
You didn't stop by to listen to all of my ramblings about school.  I'm sure you are stopping in for a peek at this week's TCP Tuesday Challenge.  Am I right?  Well, this time around, we have a color challenge for you.  You will have two weeks to play along in this challenge and if the luck of the Irish is with you, you'll have a chance to win some Cat's Cash in The Cat's Pajamas online store.  You could even be Swanky Stamper of the Month and enjoy all of the perks that go along with it.  I hope that you'll be able to take some time and play along.  You can get all of the details over at The Cat's Pajamas blog.  The link is HERE, and here is a peek at the colors for the challenge.     
I started off with this sweet image and sentiment from the Hare Today set from The Cat's Pajamas.  My little friend is colored up with Copic Markers (B97, B99, BG000, BG01, E40, E41, E42, R81, R83, and the Colorless Blender).  The Melon color is on my bunny's nose and the patterned paper from the Beautiful Life collection from Echo Park.  I colored up his umbrella to match my Dark Blue background and card base.  I used the Dots CutUps for my background.  The Sky Blue color can be found in the Chevron patterned paper (So Happy collection from Echo Park) and the button with the TCP Linen Button Twine.  Here's a peek at my card.
Thank you so much for visiting with me today.  Until next time...Toodles!  :D

Hello, again!

I do hope that you all remember me!  I know that it has been quite some time.  Life has gotten in the way of my stamping fun lately, but I am back today with a card for this round of TCP Tuesday Challenges.  Just in case you haven't heard, Our TCP Tuesday Challenges are every other Tuesday now.  That means you have two whole weeks to get your challenge done!!  It also gives you the chance to win a little Cat's Cash to spend over at the TCP Website and a chance to be Swanky Stamper of the Month.  Please head over to Alma's Blog for all of the details!  You will also want to check out Alma's newest creation CUTABLES!!  If you have a Silhouette or other cutting machine, you'll LOVE this!
This week's challenge is a wonderful sketch from Nancy.  I love all of the different shapes and layers!  One of my best friends just had a new baby girl (she already has three darling, little boys!!!) and I hope to have the chance to meet her next week.  This card will go along with her gift.  Here's a peek of the sketch. 
I started off with our long eared friend from the Bloom set from The Cat's Pajamas.  He is colored up with Copic Markers (BG000, E33, E34, E35, R20, R35, R46, YG17, YR20, YR21, and the Colorless Blender).  The papers are some oldies but goodies from DCWV.  The sentiment is from the And Baby Makes Three set and I added a few crystals to girly it up.  Then I added a few buttons and some Linen Button Twine to finish this one off.  Just right for a new baby girl!
I do hope that you will have the chance to play along with us over at The Cat's Pajamas!  Thanks so much for visiting with me today.  Have a Happy Tuesday!  Until next time...Toodles!  :D
