TCP Tuesday!

It's Tuesday, so it must be TCP Tuesday.

And if you came from Susan's Blog, you
know we are doing things a wee bit
differently today, in honor of a wee bitty boy, Nicolas del Muro and his proud mum, Jen del Muro.

Not only is it TCP Tuesday, it's a blog hop! A Baby Boy Blog Hop! And it's a surprise! Woo! Hoo!

Joanne, our hostess with the mostess, is doing a yummy color challenge using kraft, baby blue and chocolate.

AND for the surprise... it's also an inspiration challenge using baby del Muro's oh so cute nursery stuff. Everyone say "AAAAawwwww!!!"

So if you want to use celery green, cream or mustard in your design, go right ahead! It works, and it's so cute! Check out all the designs The Cat's Pack did, starting with Joanne, in honor of the newest, junior member of the pack and his momma.

Tracy couldn't be with us today, but that doesn't mean that she didn't want to play. So she sent it to me and I am posting it. Check out her super cute baby card. She used "Baby Poochie" and "Boy Oh Boy!"

Here's my take on the challenges. I used "Sweet Peas" and "Celebrate Blessings". These are two of my favorite stamps. I stamped the Sweet Peas with Versafine Vintage Sepia and cut it out. Then I colored a floral wire and attached it to the back of the peas. A charm adds the finishing touch.

This card was truly a labor of love for Jen and her new addition. Congrats to you and your family. We expect to see lots of pictures.

Did you want to play?

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.
