Thanksgiving Hop

Welcome to the TCP Tuesday Blog Hop! If you came from Jen's Blog then you have reached the end of the Blog Hop.

If you haven't visited all the other "Hoppers", you really must. The Cat Pack and the Swanky Stampers have really outdone themselves, I must say. I feel like a proud mama when I see all the wonderful things the gals make.


So start at the wonderfully inspirational Toni, the Hostess with the Mostess. She has picked this super cute photo for this week's inspiration challenge. It feels like Fall, no? With a contemporary feel, with all that metal. Makes me think of pie tins. And that always makes me think of pies, pies and more pies. Pumpkin, cherry, apple, pecan. I LOVVVEEE me some PIE!

Okay. So I've got pie on the brain. And I went a little crazy with the masking. I'm using our brand new Alphabet, Babydoll that is coming out this Tuesday and our new Thanksgiving set, "Gobble It Up". YUMMMO!

You can WIN your very own Babydoll set AND Gobble It Up set just by leaving a message in the comment section of each of the "Hoppers" blogs.

I'll pick a winner and post it this Friday.

Check out the lovely and talented, Ana. She is feeding into the pie addiction, as well.

Don't forget to play along with our inspiration challenge to be eligible for Swanky Stamper of the month by adding your own design to the guestbook at the bottom of the post.

Thank you for visiting and Thank you to The Cat Pack and our Swanky Stampers for making this Blog Hop so fun.

Here are the deets.
1. Each a week one of The Cat’s Pajamas DT members will host a challenge.
2. The challenges will vary {stamp, techinque, color, theme, sketch, etc.}
3. You will have until the end of the month to complete the challenge.
4. Post your design to the guestbook on this blog.
5. TCP stamps are not required, but of course, highly encouraged. {Unless it is a challenge calling for a specific stamp}
6. There will be one winner each month. They will be deemed that month’s Swankiest Stamper and get $25 in Cat’s Cash {money to spend on the TCP site!}.
7. Only designs posted to the guestbook will be considered for the Swanky Stamper.
8. The newly crowned Swanky Stamper will be announced on the First of the Month and have his/her winning entry posted on The Cat’s Pajamas website where he/she will reign for the entire month
